A tiny, reprogrammable Wi-Fi development kit for prototyping your Internet of Things product

The Photon is a tiny Wi-Fi development kit for creating connected projects and products for the Internet of Things. It's easy to use, it's powerful, and it's connected to the cloud.

We also have the Photon avilable in a neat kit with components for your first project

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're an embedded engineer, web developer, Arduino enthusiast or IoT entrepreneur. You'll be able to write your firmware in Particle's web or local IDE, deploy it over the air, and build your web and mobile apps with ParticleJS and their Mobile SDKs.

The board itself uses a Broadcom wi-fi chip (one that can be found in Nest Protect, LIFX, and Amazon Dash) alongside a powerful STM32 ARM Cortex M3 microcontroller. It's like the Spark Core. But better.

Does not ship with breadboard or USB cable. This board ships with headers. Photons with headers are great for using with breadboards; Photons without headers are best for surface mounting and special applications.

SPECS:

  • Particle P0 Wi-Fi module
  • Broadcom BCM43362 Wi-Fi chip
  • STM32F205 120Mhz ARM Cortex M3
  • 1MB flash, 128KB RAM
  • 802.11b/g/n
  • Soft AP setup
  • >FCC/CE/IC certified
