Introducing the Particle Photon – Compact IoT Device

We’re proud to announce that Circuit Specialists is now stocking the increasingly popular IoT (internet of things) device, the Particle Photon.



The Particle Photon is a tiny Wi-Fi enabled development kit that’s perfect for creating 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 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 a web or local IDE, deploy it over the air, and build your web and mobile apps with ParticleJS and Mobile SDKs.

To get you started quickly, Particle adds a rock solid 3.3VDC SMPS power supply, RF and user interface components to the PØ on a small single-sided PCB. The design is open source, so when you’re ready to integrate the Photon into your product, you can.

The board itself uses a Broadcom wi-fi chip (one that can be found in Nest Protect, LIFX, and Amazon Dash) alongside a powerful STM32 ARM Cortex M3 microcontroller.
