The Particle Internet of Things (IoT) platforms provide everything to create a strong and securely connected IoT product, from device to cloud

element14, a global distributor of technology products and solutions for ESDM, production, maintenance and repair, announced that it is now shipping Particle, a range of next generation cloud-connected development kits with mesh-enabled networking.

The latest solution makes it possible to extend the sensor mesh network and get the devices connected to cloud, over Wi-Fi or cellular networks, in minutes.

The Particle Internet of Things (IoT) platforms provide everything to create a strong and securely connected IoT product, from device to cloud, with smooth transition from prototype to global deployment with Device Cloud hosted infrastructure.

Different connectivity options

Particle provides three developments kits, offering different connectivity options to the Particle Device Cloud:

  • Cellular (Boron): The Boron LTE is a powerful LTE CAT-M1/NB1 enabled development kit that can serve as either a standalone cellular endpoint or LTE-enabled gateway for Particle Mesh networks. The development kit is based on Nordic nRF52840 and has built-in battery charging circuitry, so it is easy to connect a Li-Po and deploy local network in minutes. The Boron 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.
  • Wi-Fi (Argon): The Argon is a powerful Wi-Fi enabled development board that can act as either a standalone Wi-Fi endpoint or Wi-Fi enabled gateway for Particle Mesh networks. It is based on the Nordic nRF52840 and has built-in battery charging circuitry so it’s easy to connect a Li-Po and deploy your local network in minutes. The Argon is great for connecting existing projects to the Particle Device Cloud or as a gateway to connect an entire group of local endpoints.
  • Mesh (Xenon): The Xenon is a low-cost mesh-enabled development board that can act as either an endpoint or repeater within a Particle Mesh network. The Xenon is mesh only and designed to function as the endpoint of your IoT network. It is based on the Nordic nRF52840 and has built-in battery charging circuitry, so it is easy to connect a Li-Po and deploy your local network in minutes. The Xenon is best for connecting sensors, motors, pumps, valves, and points of data-interest. It can be paired with an Argon or Boron gateway to get all that great data into the Device Cloud.

The Particle development kits are available from element14 in Asia Pacific, Newark in North America and Farnell in EMEA.
