Particle Photon Development Kit


Particle’s IoT (Internet of Things) hardware development kit, the Photon, provides everything you need to build a connected project. Particle has combined a powerful 120Mhz ARM Cortex M3 micro-controller with a Broadcom Wi-Fi chip in a tiny thumbnail-sized module called the PØ (P-Zero). The Photon Kit includes a Photon with headers, a shiny white mini-breadboard, a USB-micro cable, and a couple of extra surprises to help you start building right away.

Prototyping is easy as the Photon plugs directly into standard breadboards and perfboards, and may also be mounted with 0.1″ pitch female headers on a PCB. The Photon is not only powerful, but easy to use. The small form factor is ideal for IoT projects with cloud-connectivity. To get you started quickly, Particle has added a rock solid 3.3VDC SMPS power supply, RF and user interface components to the PØ all on a small single-sided PCB.

Your Photon comes with access to the Particle Cloud, a free cloud service. The Particle Cloud has some great features for building connected projects, including over-the-air firmware updates, an easy-to-use REST API, and firmware development supported by web and local IDEs.This particular edition of the Photon comes in a kit with a few other parts. When combined together, the Photon can implement these parts to create simple experiments and help kindle ideas for different projects by adding parts of your own! Check the Kit Includes section below for a complete list of items included in the Photon Kit.

To get you started quickly, Particle adds a rock solid 3.3VDC SMPS power supply, RF and user interface components to the P0 on a small single-sided PCB called Photon. The design is open source, so when you are ready to integrate the Photon into your product, you can.The tools that make up the Photon’s ecosystem (and come along with the board) are designed to let you build and create whether you are an embedded engineer, web developer, Arduino enthusiast or IoT entrepreneur. You’ll be able to write your firmware in Particle web or local IDE, deploy it over the air, and build your web and mobile apps with ParticleJS and our Mobile SDK.The Photon comes in with headers. Prototyping is easy with headers as the Photon plugs directly into standard breadboards and perfboards, and may also be mounted with 0.1” pitch female headers on PCB.
