element14 now stocks Particle, a range of three next-generation cloud-connected development kits with mesh-enabled networking, making it possible to extend a sensor mesh network and get devices connected to the cloud over cellular or Wi-Fi networks in minutes.
These IoT platforms offer everything needed to create a robust and securely connected IoT product, from device to cloud, with seamless transition from prototype to global deployment with Device Cloud hosted infrastructure. All are based on the Nordic nRF52840 and have built-in battery charging circuitry so it’s easy to connect a Li-Po battery and deploy a local network in minutes.
The three kits give different connectivity options to the Particle Device Cloud: cellular (Boron), Wi-Fi (Argon) and mesh (Xenon). They are also featured in the Particle design centre space on the element14 Community.
The Boron is a powerful LTE CAT-M1/NB1 enabled development kit that can act as a standalone cellular endpoint or as an LTE enabled gateway for Particle Mesh networks. It is great for connecting existing projects to the Particle Device Cloud or as a gateway to connect an entire group of local endpoints where Wi-Fi is missing or unreliable.
The Argon is a powerful Wi-Fi enabled development board that can act as a standalone Wi-Fi endpoint or as a Wi-Fi enabled gateway for Particle Mesh networks. It is great for connecting existing projects to the Particle Device Cloud or as a gateway to connect an entire group of local endpoints.
The Xenon is a low-cost mesh-enabled development board that can act as an endpoint or as a repeater within a Particle Mesh network. The Xenon is mesh only and designed to function as the endpoint of an IoT network. It is best for connecting sensors, motors, pumps, valves and points of data-interest. Pair it with a Boron or Argon gateway to get all that great data into the Device Cloud.
