The Photon from Particle is here! A tiny Wi-Fi development kit for creating Internet of Things projects.It is easy to use, powerful and connected to the cloud. Particle combines a powerful ARM Cortex M3 microcontroller with a Broadcom Wi-Fi chip in a tiny thumbnail-size module called the P0 (P-Zero).
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 electronics 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.
