PIC16F877A – GSM Interfacing

This article is a continuation of the series of tutorials on the PIC16F877A Microcontroller. The aim of this series is to provide easy and practical examples that anyone can understand. In the previous tutorial, we have interfaced the Keypad with PIC16F877A. In this tutorial, we will see GSM Interfacing with PIC16F877A.

GSM Interfacing with PIC16F877A

Connection

gsm interfacing with pic16f877a

Micro controller’s RX (RC7) is connected to GSM module’s TX and Micro controller’s TX(RC6) is Connected to GSM module’s RX pin.

Code

SMS Sending Code

This code is used to send the sms message to a particular number.

#include<htc.h>

__CONFIG( FOSC_HS & WDTE_OFF & PWRTE_OFF & CP_OFF & BOREN_ON & LVP_OFF & CPD_OFF & WRT_OFF & DEBUG_OFF);

#define NUMBER 9876543210          //Here insert your number where you want to send message
 
void ser_int();
void tx(unsigned char);
unsigned char rx();
void tx_str(unsigned char *);
 
void sms(unsigned char *num1,unsigned char *msg);
void gsm_delay();
 
unsigned int dell;
 
int main()
{
        TRISC6=TRISC7=1;
        ser_int();
        sms(NUMBER, "Welcome to the Embetronicx");
        while(1);
}
 
void sms(unsigned char *num1,unsigned char *msg)
{
	tx_str("AT");
	tx(0x0d);
	gsm_delay();
 
	tx_str("AT+CMGF=1");
	tx(0x0d);
	gsm_delay();
 
	tx_str("AT+CMGS=");
	tx('"');
	while(*num1)
		tx(*num1++);
	tx('"');
	tx(0x0d);
	gsm_delay();
 
	while(*msg)
		tx(*msg++);
	tx(0x1a);
	gsm_delay();
}
 
void gsm_delay()
{
	unsigned long int gsm_del;
	for(gsm_del=0;gsm_del<=50000;gsm_del++);
}
 
void ser_int()
{
	TXSTA=0x20;	//BRGH=0, TXEN = 1, Asynchronous Mode, 8-bit mode
	RCSTA=0b10010000; //Serial Port enabled,8-bit reception
	SPBRG=17;			//9600 baudrate for 11.0592Mhz
	TXIF=RCIF=0;
}
	
void tx(unsigned char a)
{
	TXREG=a;
	while(!TXIF);
	TXIF = 0;
}

unsigned char rx()
{
	while(!RCIF);
	RCIF=0;
	return RCREG;
}

void tx_str(unsigned char *s)
{
	while(*s) {
		tx(*s++);
	}
}

Calling Code

This code is used to Call a particular number.

#include<htc.h>

__CONFIG( FOSC_HS & WDTE_OFF & PWRTE_OFF & CP_OFF & BOREN_ON & LVP_OFF & CPD_OFF & WRT_OFF & DEBUG_OFF);

#define NUMBER 9876543210          //Here insert your number where you want to send message
 
void ser_int();
void tx(unsigned char);
unsigned char rx();
void tx_str(unsigned char *);
 
void call(unsigned char *num2);
void gsm_delay();
 
unsigned int dell;
 
int main()
{
        TRISC6=TRISC7=1;
        ser_int();
        call(NUMBER);
        while(1);
}
 
void call(unsigned char *num2)
{
	tx_str("AT");
	tx(0x0d);
	gsm_delay();
 
	tx_str("AT+CMGF=1");
	tx(0x0d);
	gsm_delay();
 
	tx_str("ATD");
	while(*num2)
		tx(*num2++);
	tx(';');
	tx(0x0d);
	for(dell=0;dell<=30;dell++)
		gsm_delay();
 
	tx_str("ATH");
	tx(0x0d);
	gsm_delay();
}
 
void gsm_delay()
{
	unsigned long int gsm_del;
	for(gsm_del=0;gsm_del<=50000;gsm_del++);
}
 
void ser_int()
{
	TXSTA=0x20;	//BRGH=0, TXEN = 1, Asynchronous Mode, 8-bit mode
	RCSTA=0b10010000; //Serial Port enabled,8-bit reception
	SPBRG=17;			//9600 baudrate for 11.0592Mhz
	TXIF=RCIF=0;
}
	
void tx(unsigned char a)
{
	TXREG=a;
	while(!TXIF);
	TXIF = 0;
}

unsigned char rx()
{
	while(!RCIF);
	RCIF=0;
	return RCREG;
}

void tx_str(unsigned char *s)
{
	while(*s) {
		tx(*s++);
	}
}

That’s all guys… You can use this code to send a message and call a particular number.
