This is the Particle Photon Starter kit which contains the Photon board, a breadboard, microUSB cable, along with an LED, LDR, and two resistors to get up and running with your first project in a matter of minutes! This is the easiest way to get started with the Particle Photon

So what makes the Photon so amazing? Let's look at some of the tech specs which are packed into this byte sized board:

  • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Broadcom MCB43362 Wi-Fi controller
  • STM32F205 ARM Cortex M3 processor
  • 120Mhz clock speed
  • 1MB flash memory
  • 128KB RAM
  • 18 GPIO pins
  • UART, JTAG, I2C, SPI, ADC, DAC, CAN and USB hardware peripherals
  • 3.3V operating voltage

This Photon comes with pre-soldered male headers to make it even easier to use with your next project. For a full list of the Photon's capabilities and functions, check out the Photon with headers page. For awesome project ideas for your Photon, check out our Projects and Tutorials.

  • Infinity-Mirror Table
  • An infinity mirror creates a striking optical illusion - a tunnel of light that seems to tear through space. I built this infinity-mirror table using some addressable LEDs, a Particle Photon and easily obtainable timber supplies. Check out the video to see the table in action! If you have any questions about building your own Infinity-Mirror Table then jump down to the comments section at the bottom of this page. If you have an...
  • IoT Mailbox
  • Getting letters and parcels is awesome, what’s not so awesome though is when you miss the postman and you don’t know if that important bit of mail arrived or not. Such a frustrating, yet mundane problem can be solved by creating an Internet of Things mailbox!...
  • IoT Plant Monitor
  • So, my wife wanted to have some small plants in the house. I didn’t, so we compromised, and got some plants. The only thing is that neither of us remembers to water them, so I wanted to build a sensor array to monitor the moisture content of the soil, and notify us when they needed watering. We’ve got 3 plants, all fairly close to each other, and I wanted to create an IoT project so that it could send an email notifi...
  • IOT Shed
  • The driver behind this project is to allow the remote control of some of the equipment in my shed. I have a CNC router/laser cutter that uses my compressor and dust extractor whilst it is running, and well whats the point in having a computer comtrolled machine if you have to hang around and turn the other auxiliary bits on and off?!? There are a million ways to skin a cat, and the same is true about this project. However after ...
  • IoT House
  • These days we can do just about anything on our phone, we can control so many aspects of our lives using the technology in our pocket, but the most mundane aspects of our lives; opening the garage door, blindly reaching for the light switch in the dark, opening the front door when we get home, still relies on manual interaction. So I created the Particle IoT House, which contains servo motors to open and close the front and gara...

    Great product. Recommend this over buying a plain photon (even if you're not a beginner). You get a breadboard with it too! (Posted on 25/03/2017)
