NEW PRODUCT – Particle Boron 2G/3G Kit – nRF52840 with Mesh and Cellular


Woohoo, it’s time for a Particle Mesh party! So why not cater for connectivity with the Particle Mesh 2G/3G Cellular, 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.

Like all Particle Mesh boards, it even has built-in battery charging circuitry so it’s easy to connect a Li-Poly battery 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. And because it has a 2G/3G cellular modem, it can work just about anywhere in the world.

Note that there’s also a Particle Boron with LTE support, but this one is 2G or 3G only!  The Particle Boron 2G/3G is a powerful board that can act as a gateway between any 2G or 3G cellular network and your local Particle Mesh network.

You might be looking at these dev boards and thinking “Hey wow you know they kinda look like Feathers!” Well you’ve won a fabulous prize because they are 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. Prototyping is free and Particle customers receive 10 free cloud micro networks which means one gateway (like the Boron or Argon) and up to 10 additional devices (like Xenons). Please refer to their pricing documentation for more information.

Kit includes:

  • 1 x Boron 2G/3G development board
  • 1 x mini breadboard
  • 1 x cellular flex antenna
  • USB cable
  • Components
    • 2 x 220 ohm resistors
    • 1 x red LED
    • 1 x photodiode light sensor
