Particle Argon Kit – nRF52840 with BLE and WiFi: Woohoo, it’s time for a Particle Mesh party! And the Particle Argon is bringing it with a mix of Bluetooth Low Energy and Wi-Fi, your two most favorite 2.4GHz wireless protocols. The Argon is a powerful Wi-Fi enabled development kit that can act as either a standalone Wi-Fi endpoint or Wi-Fi enabled gateway for Particle Mesh networks. It is based on the Nordic nRF52840, the BLE Cortex M4 with a ton of Flash, RAM and peripherals, including native USB support.

Like all Particle Mesh boards, it even has built-in battery charging circuitry so it’s easy to connect a Li-Poly battery (not included but we stock lots here at the ‘fruit) and deploy your local network in minutes. The Argon is great for connecting existing projects to the Particle Device Cloud or as a gateway to connect an entire group of local endpoints.

Particle Boron LTE Kit – nRF52840 with LTE Cellular Modem: Woohoo, it’s time for a Particle Mesh party! And the Particle Boron LTE is bringing it with a double-dose of Bluetooth Low Energy and LTE Cellular – so you’re covered for network connectivity, no matter where you are. The Boron LTE is a powerful LTE CAT-M1/NB1 enabled development kit that can act as either a standalone cellular endpoint or LTE enabled gateway for Particle Mesh networks . It is based on the Nordic nRF52840, the BLE Cortex M4 with a ton of Flash, RAM and peripherals, including native USB support.

Like all Particle Mesh boards, it even has built-in battery charging circuitry so it’s easy to connect a Li-Poly battery (not included but we stock lots here at the ‘fruit) and deploy your local network in minutes. The Boron is great for connecting existing projects to the Particle Device Cloud or as a gateway to connect an entire group of local endpoints where Wi-Fi is missing or unreliable.

Particle Xenon Kit – nRF52840 with BLE: Coming soon! Sign up to be notified when these come in

Woohoo, it’s time for a Particle Mesh party! And the Particle Xenon Kit is the most basic element (ha!) for your BLE mesh network. The Xenon is a low-cost mesh-enabled development kit that can act as either a standalone endpoint or repeater for Particle Mesh networks . It is based on the Nordic nRF52840, the BLE Cortex M4 with a ton of Flash, RAM and peripherals, including native USB support.

Like all Particle Mesh boards, it even has built-in battery charging circuitry so it’s easy to connect a Li-Poly battery (not included but we stock lots here at the ‘fruit) and deploy your local network in minutes. The Xenon is great for connecting sensors, motors, pumps, valves, and points of data-interest. Pair it with an Argon or Boron gateway to osmosis all that great data into the Device Cloud.

Particle Debugger: If you’ve got a modern ARM chip devboard you’ll notice that it has one of those tiny 2×5 connectors on it. Those are SWD ports, and they’re used when you need to program or debug an ARM chip like those on the Particle boards.

So, say you want to get into the weeds on these chips, trace stracks, watch memory, or re-program the chip directly? You’ll need one of these. The Particle Debugger gives you the power of professional debugging at a fraction of the cost. Using this accessory, you’ll be able to program Particle mesh-ready hardware over common interfaces like JTAG and SWD, using open source tools like GDB.

Particle Ethernet FeatherWing: This three-in-one Particle Ethernet Feather is a mix of our Ethernet ‘wing and the Tripler ‘wing. The form-factor is based around the Adafruit FeatherWing Tripler. The two side connectors allow you to plug in one Particle Mesh device along with a Feather accessory.

The Ethernet FeatherWing is designed to be the fastest way to add wired connectivity to your Argon, Boron, or Xenon and turns any Particle Mesh dev kit into an Ethernet gateway. Based on the WIZnet W5500 chip, this side-by-side FeatherWing maintains great RF performance even while adding Ethernet connectivity to any Particle Mesh device.

Particle Mesh WiFi Bundle – Full Starter Kit: Woohoo, it’s time for a Particle Mesh party! So why not cater for connectivity with the Particle Mesh Wi-Fi Bundle, a veritable smörgåsbord (yum!) to begin building mesh networking for your IoT project. Particle Mesh means you can create local networks that collect data, share messages, and connect to the Internet through a Particle gateway.

The bundle comes with three mesh-ready boards: the Argon, a powerful board that can act as a gateway between your home Wi-Fi network and your local Particle Mesh network and two Xenons, the end points or network repeaters, so you can start to experiment with a multi-device Particle Mesh network.

Garmin LIDAR-Lite Optical Distant Sensor – V3: You’ve heard about the sensors in the news, when used in self-driving cars, and now you can have your own! Garmin’s LIDAR-Lite V3 is the ideal high-performance (but compact) optical distant measurement sensor solution for drone, rovers, robots, or interactive project. Garmin makes high quality sensors, they’re renowned for their GPS sensors, and these LIDARs are nice and high quality devices.

You can measure up to 40 meters away with laser-based sensor that draws only 130 mA during an acquisition. You can easily adjust between accuracy, operating range and measurement time using the I2C command set.
