SparqEE CELLv1.0: Cellular made easy


The CELLv1.0 is an easy-to-use cellular development kit.  Add it to your Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or any other project you have to instantly add wireless communications capable of operating anywhere in the world!



Check out the Arduino and Raspberry Pi Shields to see just how easy it is to connect the CELLv1.0 to your Arduino and Raspberry Pi!

If you’re not using a shield, all you need are 4 connections – RX, TX, GND, and Vref so you can use your 3.3V or 5V system.  Use the USB cable we supply for power and voilà!


SparqEE helps you every step of the way with the CELLv1.0 to easily get your data from Your Device, through The Cloud, and back out to Your Smartphone or Computer!

Important Facts:

  • The CELLv1.0 uses a 2G+3G chipset, which means it will use 3G primarily worldwide and only fall back to 2G if 3G is unavailable.
  • Question: Why are 2G (GSM/GPRS) devices less expensive?  Answer: some 2G only systems are less, BUT, here’s the backstory: We chose to provide both 2G and 3G because AT&T is dropping their 2G service in 2017 (TMobile coverage is much more limited than AT&T and the CDMA technology Verizon and Sprint use isn’t prevalent elsewhere in the world).  With the CELLv1.0 you get the best of both worlds – 2G, which is the most prevalent worldwide technology, while still providing full cellular coverage in the US using 3G. So if you want a device that works across the world for decades to come, go with the CELLv1.0!
  • The CELLv1.0 is the smallest module on the market, the least expensive 2/3G device out there, and the easiest to use!
