NEW PRODUCT – Particle Xenon – nRF52840 with BLE


Woohoo, it’s time for a Particle Mesh party! And the Particle Xenon is the most basic element (ha!) for your mesh network. The Xenon is a low-cost mesh-enabled development board 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.

You might be looking at this dev board and thinking “Hey wow you know it kinda looks like a Feather!” Well you’ve won a fabulous prize because it is in fact Feather compatible! Yes, the brilliant engineers at Particle checked out our Feather spec, and made something that is pin compatible so you can use our massive collection of FeatherWings to add more capabilities. (Please note that there may not be Particle Mesh libraries for all the hardware we make, if you’re not sure, check with them to see if there’s a driver available for their IDE)

All Particle hardware is designed from the ground up to work with the Device Cloud; a powerful set of tools and infrastructure to build, connect, and manage your IoT fleet. The Device Cloud for Particle Mesh is priced by network. All Particle customers get 3 free months of Device Cloud access for micro networks using a cellular gateway. A micro network is defined as a network with 10 total devices and a single gateway. Please refer to their cloud pricing documentation for more information.

Note: This product is only the Xenon board. If you’d like some component goodies to experiment with, try the Xenon Kit.
