Particle Photon with Headers / Particle Photon without Headers

The Photon is a $19 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.

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 our web or local IDE, deploy it over the air, and build your web and mobile apps with ParticleJS and our Mobile SDK.

The board itself uses a Broadcom WICED 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! The WICED chipset is much faster than the original CC3000 in the ‘Core and also supports SSL and Soft-AP mode.

Both are in stock and shipping now!

Particle Photon Starter Kit

The Particle Photon Kit includes a Photon with headers, a shiny white half-size solderless breadboard, a USB-micro cable, and a couple of extra surprises (two resistors, an LED, and a photocell) to help you start building your Internet of Things projects right away.

Your Particle 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.

Particle Shield Shield for Photon

The Particle Shield Shield converts the footprint and pins of your Photon into that of an Arduino, allowing for use of existing Arduino shields and accessories.

This shield converts the pin mapping of the Photon to the Arduino pin layout and provides a voltage translation of 3.3V to/from 5V. Note that Arduino libraries are not necessarily going to work without some porting, but for many basic shields that do not depend on the specific Arduino chipset, this will get you that much closer to compatibility!

Mechanically compatible with both the Particle/Spark Core and the Particle Photon.

In stock and shipping now!

Particle Maker Kit with Photon

The Particle Maker Kit has just about everything you need to get started with your Particle Photon. It’s the kind of no nonsense starter kit that’s filled with all the components and accessories you need to build simple internet enabled projects and up your hacker level from zero to hardware hero.

Particle Photon Internet Button

Make something happen on the internet. We’re not talking about putting up a video of your daschund standing on a vacuum cleaner and hoping that it will go viral. We’re talking about pressing a big, rewarding button and having your Photon order a pizza, text a loved one, or dial your missing phone.

The Internet Button from Particle has four pre-soldered buttons that can interact with the Internet via the Particle. It uses on-board LEDs to display data or alerts and there’s no coding required.

Comes ready to go – with a Particle Photon, a USB-micro cable, as well as a removable plastic cover.

In stock and shipping now!
