Hi Radhika,

 

 

Thank you for contacting us.

 

 

I didn't find any information related about this module, can you give the pin configuration of the module?

 

 

I just found this shield that maybe can be helpful for you: http://www.elecrow.com/wiki/index.php?title=A7_GPRS%2BGSM%2BGPS_Shield, this is an Arduino shield and there is a pin configuration that you can use as reference for the connections that you want.

 

 

I hope you find this useful.

 

 

Regards,

Hi Leonardog ,

I am also looking same information.

Here is the pin out A6 and A7 GSM+GPRS module.

A6 or A7 Working voltage : 3.3V-4.2V; Power voltage: >3.4V

Hi Sree,

 

 

I didn't find any useful information, or workarounds about this. Personally, my recommendation is to look the Eagle files of the shield: http://www.elecrow.com/wiki/index.php?title=File:A7_GPRS_GSM_Shield.zip, you can check there the pin configuration of the module in the shield, and use it as reference and how to connect it to the Edison.

 

 

I hope you find this helpful.
