OUR VISION:

Just one thought- bringing to you more powerful shields, borne from professional designs, at affordable prices. In this way, "THE ALPHABET PROJECT - professional Arduino, BeagleBone & Raspberry PI shields" becomes reality. From now on the mobile IoT becomes easy as that.

HOW WE DO THAT?

There's very simple: just porting some successful of our professional designs in a way to fit the small/medium IoT and automation gadget projects and DYI/hobby market niches.

WHY ALPHABET?

When you comunicate, first you'll need to know the words, but what you do if you did not "learn" the alphabet before? This is our task - bringing the alphabet's letters to you. Use our powerful "letters" to build your "words", then "communicate" using them.

European Award given to R&D Software Solutions

HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO USE THE ALPHABET?

Any of our shields has downloadable commented and structured examples. Playing with this examples and expanding the code you can obtain interesting applications. All hardware configurations are well documented.

ABOUT US:

We are a gang of guys having same passions: electronics, software... Since 2001, we are working as solution provider, incorporating electronics and IT technologies with our original concepts and ideas into smart and cost-effective solutions. Deeply involved in innovation, R&D Software Solutions received in 2006 as acknowledgement for its innovative ideas, the GST SSC Bronze Award between competitors like: IBM, Computer Associates, 17 European Universities and a batch of SME.



A   a-gsm shield

ARDUINO and RASPBERRY PI compatible GSM/GPRS/DTMF/SMS shield : a-gsm shield
it is one ARDUINO & RASPBERRY PI compatible GSM / GPRS / DTMF / SMS shield. Sorry... not "one", "the one"! The combination of supported features, some of them unique on market, make it the perfect match for anyone needs. Integrated antenna and U.FL connector for extenal one(YES!), embedded USB interface(mmm, good!), DUAL SIM(changing active SIM and network "on the fly"), micro SD adapter (maybe some data must be stored somehow), two regular 3.5mm stereo jacks mic and speaker (700mW-RMS!!!) are only some of them.
I almost forget: we embed into a-gsm shield one switching power supply that makes possible the usage of the Arduino / RasperryPI 5V/Vint output as powering source. Also, you can use the a-gsm shield as GPRS modem connect via USB with your computer, or you can use your phone adapter as power supply for the shield(uUSB B).;) We've tested all this powering schemas(especially for powering via Arduino 5V/Vin pins) until -95dB signal level and...IT IS WORKING!(...anyway, you use some decent power adapter for your Arduino / Raspberry!?)
Read more about a-gsm shield, buy it, download code examples (C for Arduino and Python for Raspberry PI) and start your DYI project with wireless communication....and remmember this: if you are involved in development of a small/medium size project requiring robust and reliable communication performance, a-gsm series is the solution.

LTE CAT M1? NB IoT? LTE CAT 4? LTE CAT 1? UMTS? GSM? Just u-GSM! But, why "u"? "u" because it's unified, ultimate, unique, unbelievable and ... unobtainable, until now!

itbrainpower.net u-GSM shield it is the worldwide first and most compact modular modem that supports ALL deployed GSM standards [LTE NB IoT / LTE CATM1 / LTE CAT4 / LTE CAT1 / UMTS-3G / GSM-2G] in one unified design!

This amazing u-GSM shield may replace all different modem designs by giving to you the same form factor, same interfaces and same integration approach. Just pick the PN that fits your request and that's all.

Not only all GSM standards are supported, but popular SBCs [Raspberry PI (all B GPPIO interface versions) and Beagle Bone Black are supported directly trough integrated interfaces] and micro-controller shields [Arduino, Teensy and any other 3-5V MCUs] are supported too.

This second generation modular modem embeds unique and rare features and was brewed thanks to our team design experience, thanks to the vision of Quectel engineers team and to our customers feedback.

Some of those amazing features, that makes u-GSM to be the ultimate, the unique and the unbelievable modem, are listed bellow:
  • Raspberry PI, Beagle Bone Black and ITBPMM embedded interfaces

itbrainpower.net xyz-mIoT it is the worldwide first and most compact board in this class, that combines the functionality of the ATSAMD21G ARM0 microcontroller (Arduino Zero compatible design), embedded THS + tVOC + HALL + IR + tilt/vibration sensors and global LPWR LTE CATM1 or NB-IoT / 3G / GSM connectivity.

In addition to already embedded sensors, the abundance of interfaces [I2C, SPI, UART, 13 digital I/O - 1WIRE and PWM capable, 5 analog inputs and more] combined with the power and the versatility of the ARM0 core provides endless devices / sensors / actuators interfacing IoT solution.

Multiple powering profiles are supported, as: LiPO, super-capacitor, 5V direct powering, power-harvesting mode [Eg.: small solar cell] and Lithium primer battery.

Multiple LPWR LTE [CAT M1 or NB IoT] / 3G-UMTS / GSM global modem options are available for your choice, covering your project budget and requirements. All GSM / 3G / LPR LTE models share the very same 4.50x3.50cm unified design.

On board several additional interfaces, useful for integration, are available:
  • JTAG connector VIAs (2x5x1.27mm)
  • external SIM socket connecting pads (1.27mm)
  • modem USB soldering pads (only for 3G and LTE CATM1 variants)
  • modem UART port monitoring pads (4 debug)
  • super-capacitor / additional capacitor soldering pads
  • TILT / REED soldering pads

Additional onboard features:
  • VIN voltage monitoring
  • VBAT (LiPO / super-cappacitor) voltage monitoring

Also, 10 PCB solder jumpers offers the possibility for enabling / disabling LEDs and other embedded features.

Beyond obvious target applications [smart modems with "last-gasp", access control and environment monitoring for IoT gateways, air quality monitoring, smart metering, smart machinery for legacy controllers, smart bees farming (hives monitoring), smart city applications, security & tracking, emergency pagers and many other], itbrainpower.net xyz-mIoT is the ideal solution for integrators and DYI fans wanting to design and deploy in a timely manner their LTE CAT M1 and NB-IoT (or legacy 3G/UMTS and GSM) IoT projects regardless previous experience in modems and network technology.

ARDUINO (arduino.cc v >= 1.8.5) integration, together with transparent socket class support, interrupt-based programming support and CLOUD code offers fast IoT to CLOUD application deployment time.
