Hello to all!
I would like to anounce you that a new batch of the Advanced GPRS Shield is ready and it comes with an improved design!
Lets see what has changed.
First of all , the features that made this shield so favorite remains the same. The battery charger/connector is on place, the hardware or software UART selector on the corner and the external SMA connector for GSM antenna on the opposite side.
The first change is the double pin header row (Female-Male) on both sides that what not looking so good and didn’t leave place for pin marking on the silkscreen. We replaced that with a signle row of new long header pins that leaved space to add the Arduino pin marking on silkscreen.
Also now all the parts are on the top side of the PCB (except the SIM socket) and redesigned for better stability and improved manufacturing.
Enjoy the improved Advanced GPRS Shield, check the new features of the Arduino Library for easy SMS, easy GPRS and battery monitor function ready for you.
