- Module size: 2.5cmx2.3cm
- TTL serial port for serial port, you can link directly to the microcontroller. No need MAX232
- Power module automatically boot, homing network
- Onboard signal lights all the way . It flashes slowly when there is a signal, it flashes quickly when there is no signal
- 1 x SIM800L Quad-band GPRS GSM Module
This SIM800L breakout board is ideal for projects that needs to save space. In fact, this is the one I used when I created my own cellphone. This board draws a maximum of 2 A with an input voltage of 3.7 V to 4.2 V. This means you must not connect its pins directly to a 5 V Arduino! It doesn’t even run on 3.3 V.
N.B.: This product needs to be soldering before use.
