Arch GPRS V2 is the new and improved version of the Arch GPRS development board from Seeed Studio. Like the original Arch GPRS, it is also an mbed enabled development board that houses a cellular networking module along with a microcontroller. Arch GPRS V2 uses the LPC11U37 Microcontroller instead of the LPC11U24 used on the Arch GPRS. You can use the mbed C/C++ SDK, libraries and optimizing online development tools to rapidly build your Arch GPRS V2 based prototype. The cellular networking module on the Arch GPRS is based on the SIM900 Quad-band GSM/GRPS engine from SIMCom. With this, data collection functions can be performed easily using the 2G GSM/GPRS based cellular network.¬† ¬† Arch GPRS V2 has a standard Arduino interface as well as Grove connectors on board. It‚Äôs convenient to connect existing Shields and Grove products to Arch GPRS V2. You can even connect a solar panel directly to the board to allow for the battery to charge from it. A low-power design guarantees easy charging and long hour operations when outdoors! ¬† Note:¬† Arch GPRS V2 doesn't come with an mbed interface.
