SocketModem® Shield - Adapter Developer Kit

SocketModem® Shield - Adapter Developer Kit

The SocketModem® Shield is a prototyping and development tool for cellular connectivity. It gives developers access to MultiTech’s extensive line of fully-certified embedded cellular SocketModem’s through an Arduino Shield interface, the de facto standard for accessory cards in the microcontroller development community. It is not only the fastest-way to prototype your next cellular solution, but by leveraging MultiTech’s portfolio of carrier approved SocketModems, developers move faster to a production-ready design.

MultiTech has developed mbed compatible software libraries to enable rapid development. Please visit MultiTech's mbed page for more information on this ARM-sponsored development ecosystem.
