The SIM900 GSM GPRS Dev’ Board is a modular Arduino Shield that attaches directly onto existing Arduino Mega projects, providing internet access and Wi-Fi communication capabilities. By utilizing the SIM900 chip, it is capable of delivering 850/900/1800/1900MHz GSM/GPRS performance for voice, SMS, Data and Fax communications – all within a compact form factor and with low power consumption.
This shield genuinely opens up an endless amount of possibilities, as it enables your projects to communicate with almost any device around the world, as well as with each other, despite being located in random or remote locations. And as such, you can make your home automation system activate when your car gets close to the house, you can make your fridge order more vegetables when they’re running out, or you can even build devices to track stolen vehicles or property in case of theft.
The SIM900 GSM GPRS Shield is typically controlled viaGSM 07.07, 07.05 and SIMCOM enhanced AT commands, which in turn operate the powerful AMR926EJ-S core-based SIM900 chip. This chip, while being considered as a very cost-effective solution compared to similar chips, offers a wide range of features, although the most important feature is the small form factor. Many other chips can perform to the same efficiency and effect as the SIM900, but very few have a form factor small enough to cater to compact Arduino Board projects – which is why this Shield has recently taken the lead in popularity amongst Makers online.
