This is an A6 development board for the A6 module. The A6 module is a well-designed, simple to use GPRS + GSM module, but by itself is not user-friendly with it's unsoldered half-cut holes. Cue breakout board! The module comes pre-soldered to the board and contains all the necessary circuitry and components to run the A6 module, such as a mini SIM card slot and antenna.
The A6 Module provides a serial port to communicate via GPRS, sending text messages and phone calls. The GPRS functions can be used for IoT project which does not require WiFi connection condition. The GSM functionality of the module provides more ways to send commands to your IoT device.
Check out the datasheet below for a full list of specifications and schematics.
- Breakout dimension: 26.5 x 32.9mm
- SIM card slot: Mini-SIM card
