|Particle Photon is a tiny Wi-Fi development kit for creating connected projects and products for the Internet of Things.|
Particle's Internet of Things hardware development kit, the Photon, provides everything you need to build a connected product. Particle combines a powerful ARM Cortex M3 micro-controller with a Broadcom Wi-Fi chip in a tiny thumbnail-sized module called the P-zero.
To get you started quickly, Particle adds a rock solid 3.3VDC SMPS power supply, RF and user interface components to the P-zero on a small single-sided PCB called the Photon. The design is open source, so when you're ready to integrate the Photon into your product, you can.
Prototyping is easy with headers as the Photon plugs directly into standard breadboards and perfboards, and may also be mounted with 0.1" pitch female headers on a PCB. To minimize space required, the Photon form factor without headers has castellated edges. These make it possible to surface mount the Photon directly onto your PCB.
