Suitable for all – beginner, intermediate & expert.
Particle(AKA Spark) offers small & powerful hardware boards and software tools to develop Internet of Things (IoT). Particle boards come in following flavours:
- Spark Core (The original) version for WiFi connectivity.
- Particle Electron 2G/3G version for cellular connectivity.
- Particle Photo (Latest version of spark core).
Particle devices are great development hardware with out of the box cloud connectivity. They are the tiny boards with numbers of I/Os and FCC/CE/IC certification to scale you from prototype to mass production in no time. You can programme it using Arduino like code, C/C++ or the traditional way in assembly. The tinkering could never be easier to controlling from an app without changing code & compiling code on the board. It also has an amazing web-based IDE called Particle build for programming. While it also offers offline IDE, command line & ParticleJS to suit everyone’s needs. The over the air programming and the REST interface makes it complete stand-alone Internet of Things device.
