Particle Photon

By David Scheltema / Jan 4, 2016

Particle Photon

The Particle Photon is designed for the Internet of Things, and Particle runs its own cloud infrastructure to support its ecosystem of devices. Configuring the Photon to connect to the cloud is a breeze. Download the Particle smartphone app (Android or iPhone), connect the board to your network, and start coding using Particle’s web-based development environment. Those familiar with Arduino will find that the tiny board offers both analog and digital I/O, mimicking the Arduino Uno.
