b-gsmgnss v2.105 - Arduino GSM GPS Shield [dual SIM, integrated antenna + uFL, quad band GSM/GPRS/DTMF/SMS, Bluetooth 3.0, GNSS (GPS+GLONASS)] ARDUINO, TEENSY, BEAGLEBONE & RASPBERRY PI compatible shield, our latest "full size Arduino" product released, it is the most integrated 2G+GNSS full size shield available today.

The new b-gsmgnss v2.105 [Arduino full size GSM + GNSS (GPS + GLONASS) shield], together with a-gsmII v2.105 [Arduino full size GSM shield] - Arduino, Teensy, BeagleBone & RASPBERRY PI compatible shields - belongs to the next generation of the successfully a-gsm v2.064 and offers to best market performances in their product class, accompanied by quite reasonable price.

Designed in EUROPE by R&D Software Solutions team - awarded in 2006 with the GST SSC Bronze Award - the b-gsmgnss shield proudly represents the concept of porting of professional solutions to the hobby/DYI market. The new b-gsmgnss v2.105 - Arduino GSM Shield design enhance the integration and performances of the previous a-gsm shield, including some new features inspired by customers feedback.

The a-gsm/b-gsmgnss series covers your needs for a fully integrated, functional and affordable cellular modem shield / platform. Smart complete design of the b-gsmgnss shield brings you the flexibility and easiness in integration, wherever your platform and application. Beyond ARDUINO / RASPBERRY PI / others hobby / DYI platforms integration, the b-gsmgnss shield can be easily and in a time manner incorporated into your equipment regardless your previous experience in modem technology. The a-gsm/b-gsmgnss series represents your best choice for usage into a wide range of designs requiring robust and reliable performance.

b-gsmgnss v2.105 - Arduino GSM GPS Shield integrates the following features as standard:
  • high performance GSM/GPRS + GNSS module (Quectel MC60) with worldwide coverage- 850/950/1800/1900 MHz;
  • integrated GSM antenna together with u.FL socket for GSM external antenna;
  • DUAL SIM socket (both placed on the top side of the shield for convenient access);
  • high performances GNSS engine embedded with parallel GPS and Glonass satellites interpolation for best accuracy and signal sensitivity. Supports active and passive GNSS antennas;
  • Bluetooth 3.0 interface embedded (SPP and HFP profile supported);
  • USB interface (WINDOWS/LINUX/MAC, RaspberryPI / BeagleBone [Debian] support; USB mini type B)
  • UART [TX, RX], POWER ON/OFF, MODEM STATUS and MODEM RESET 2.8V up to 5V compliant interfaces, wired in standard Arduino headers position; other signals/interfaces [eg.: debug UART and RI, RTS, CTS, DTR and DCD UART1 signals] are available trough soldering pads on the back side of the board;
  • micro SD slot (supporting micro TF cards up to 32Gb);
  • high performance switching power supply [5 powering modes, including from USB];
  • 2 x standard 3.5mm stereo jacks for high power audio output (800mW) and for capacitor microphone input
  • POWER ON/OFF, RESET and Arduino RESET push micro switches;

Drop in replacement [compatible with] the original Arduino GSM / Arduino GSM V2 [Arduino.org / Arduino.cc], supported for (almost) all projects via the ITBP Arduino GSM hack class [free download on https://itbrainpower.net/downloads#b-gsmgnss].

Manufactured in EU.
