E-Blocks GSM / GPRS Board US$55.50

E-Blocks GSM / GPRS Board

This is a downstream E-blocks peripheral module, designed to be controlled by one of the upstream E-blocks processing boards which are available in a variety of MCU/CPLD architectures.

The Quad Band GSM/GPRS E-block board allows easy access to the mobile phone GSM/GPRS networks. The on-board GSM/GPRS module (GC864-QUAD V2) can be used to make or receive wireless voice calls and is also capable of sending and receiving SMS text messages. The GSM/GPRS E-block comes complete with on-board PCB antenna, SIM card socket, 2.5mm audio jacks for MIC and Headphone audio connection, and an LED to display the network connection status. Note that a SIM card is not included.

This board does not work reliably with SIM cards that operate on the 900MHz band. Therefore, users in Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and Brazil are recommended to use SIM cards/networks in the 1800MHz band instead.

E-blocks GSM/GPRS Board Features

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS connection
  • Voice, SMS text and data communications
  • MIC and Headphone sockets
  • SIM card socket
  • Network status LED and signal
  • PCB-mounted antenna
  • 5V and 3.3V compatible

E-Blocks Overview

E-Blocks are small circuit boards each of which contains a block of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic system. Each E-Block performs a separate function as either an input sub-system, an output sub-system, an input/output sub-system or a processing sub-system.

E-Blocks can be put together to form a variety of systems that can be used for teaching and learning electronics, and for the rapid prototyping of complex electronic systems.

Each E-Block has one or more 9-way D-type connectors that provide up to eight input/output lines and a ground line. These D-type connectors allow connection between E-Blocks to be made in buses of multiples of 8 lines, just like a real electronic system. Power is routed separately to those E-Blocks that need it.

Processing E-Blocks based on PIC, dsPIC, ARM or AVR microcontrollers control the whole E-Blocks system. Processing E-Blocks provide up to five input/output ports with up to eight lines per port.

Please see the E-Blocks Category for a list of available components. For more details on E-Blocks, see the E-Blocks User Guide (in English, French, German and Spanish) or watch the Introduction to E-Blocks video.
