GM862 Cellular Module
Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
The GM862 is a GSM cellular module that enables you to connect to the cellular network using simple 'AT' commands.
Yes it's as easy as sending:
Couple down sides to this module:
1) The GM862 uses a very specialized 50-pin molex connector that only comes in SMD.
2) The GM862 requires 3.8V at 1.9A peak. So you'll need to use the LT1528 as well.
Cool module. Works anywhere with GSM connectivity (North America and Europe included).
