Make - Getting Started with the Photon - Making Things with the Affordable, Compact, Hackable WiFi Module

Simon Monk


The Photon is an open resource, low-cost, programmable, WiFi-enabled module for development hooked up initiatives and prototypes. Powered through an ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller and a Broadcom WiFi chip, the Photon is simply as satisfied plugged right into a hobbyist's breadboard because it is right into a product rolling off of an meeting line.

While the Photon--and its accompanying cloud platform--is designed as a ready-to-go starting place for product builders and brands, it's nice for Maker tasks, as you'll see during this e-book. You'll how to start with the loose improvement instruments, install your sketches over WiFi, and construct digital tasks that make the most of the Photon's processing energy, cloud platform, and input/output pins. What's extra, the Photon is backward-compatible with its predecessor, the Spark middle.
