<b>Description:</b><br> The GM862 is a GSM cellular module that enables you to connect to the cellular network using simple 'AT' commands.

Yes it's as easy as sending:

+
<tt>ATD 3035551234;</tt>
+
 
+
Couple down sides to this module:<br>
+
1) The GM862 uses a very specialized 50-pin molex connector that only comes in SMD.<br>
+
2) The GM862 requires 3.8V at 1.9A peak. So you'll need to use the LT1528 as well.
+
 
+
Cool module. Works anywhere with GSM connectivity (North America and Europe included).

Description:
This is the Molex SMD connector that interfaces to the GM862 Cellular Modules. If you're prototyping with the GM862, you pretty much have to have one of these. Watch out, it's 0.5mm pitch, 50-pin, SMD connector. You can solder it by hand, but you'll need some experience, solder wick, and a decent iron. You can also reflow it with a hot-plate and a stencil. If you're not comfortable soldering it, there are breakout boards and designs available from SFE.
