With a powerful ARM Cortex M3 microcontroller with a Cypress WICED WiFi chip, Particle Photon IoT Hardware Development Kits is a complete IoT development solution. Based on Cypress WICED architecture, the microcontroller and Wi-Fi chip are housed in a tiny thumbnail-sized module called the PØ (P-zero).
Equipped with best in class RF module and other interfacing components on a small PCB, the device gets power from 3.3 VDC SMPS supply. Although the device is open source, the particle launches into its two version: with headers and without headers. Thus making it easier for surface mountable application and pref Board application.
