gprs modem serial view clean-300In this article we will make introduction on how to add SMS/GPRS connectivity to your hardware design, advice on how to choose adequate modem as well as how to use it.

Almost every new hardware has some kind of connectivity available. Wireless connectivity has many advantages such as easy connection, no wires attached, no additional connectors and there for robustness (you would be surprised that for example micro USB connectors are declared to have only few thousand cable release cycles before subject to wear out).

crcAll 1-Wire® devices, including iButton® devices, contain an 8-byte unique registration number in read-only memory (ROM). This registration number is used as a unique network address on a 1-Wire bus. To ensure data communication integrity, one byte of each registration number is a DOW CRC byte. This article explains how to calculate this 8-bit DOW CRC and gives example code that is used in iButton AVR readout example project used with DS1990R-F5.
