DTMF Shield for Arduino


Plugs into an Arduino board and convert DTMF (Touch Tone) signals into digital so that Arduino and other microcontrollers can understand.

At the heart of this module is a DTMF decoder chip. This application specific chip that does all the heavy lifting so that the interface with your Sketch is easy.
