SIM Cards

Cheaper mobile phones now swamp the market but is it possible to harness this low-cost, hi-tech engineering solution for embedded applications?

Yes it is.

There are many GSM/2G/3G/4G modules out there by companies such as SIM, Wavecom and Telit.

These modules are cost-effective and have a high level of functionality such as audio, SMS, internet, data and so on.

Our team have designed these units into many products and developed the embedded software to drive them. This technology is highly affordable in terms of development and parts costs.

A recent Bluefruit project required remote data-logging. We developed a remote solution, which as well as storing data locally also connected over GPRS to an FTP site and stored the data remotely.

By utilising the likes of GSM, GPRS, EDGE and 3/4G, developers everywhere are able to embrace cheaper forms of technology to produce higher quality solutions.
