The Photon is an open source, inexpensive, programmable, WiFi-enabled module for building connected projects and prototypes. Powered by an ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller and a Broadcom WiFi chip, the Photon is just as happy plugged into a hobbyist's breadboard as it is into a product rolling off of an assembly line. While the Photon--and its accompanying cloud platform--is designed as a ready-to-go foundation for product developers and manufacturers, it's great for Maker projects, as you'll see in this book. You'll learn how to get started with the free development tools, deploy your sketches over WiFi, and build electronic projects that take advantage of the Photon's processing power, cloud platform, and input/output pins. What's more, the Photon is backward-compatible with its predecessor, the Spark Core.To help you get your Core connected, Particle has produced a smartphone app available for Android and iPhone. ... state either by clearing credentials (hold Setup until the Core blinks blue very rapidly), or by doing a factory reset on it as described in Chapter 9. You will need an Android or iOS (iPhone/iPad) device to use the Tinker app to connect your device, and the phone or tablet must be ...
