This week we have a new Photon-based RedBoard and a handy cable.
Welcome back everyone! This week we have a couple new products, including yet another Photon-based product to talk about. First, let’s check out the video as to better spoil the surprise.
That’s right, this week the SparkFun Photon RedBoard is shipping! Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait until next week for the Photon SIK, but you can place your pre-order. The SparkFun Photon RedBoard is a WiFi/Microcontroller development board in the Arduino form-factor for the Photon. It’s easy to use, it’s powerful, and connected to the cloud. With the best support, potential, and performance the Photon RedBoard provides you with an IoT device with a powerful 120Mhz ARM Cortex M3 and built-in WiFi connectivity.
Every so often, we come across a product that makes us wonder how we’ve gone this long without it. This little jumper cable is one of those products. It’s simple, elegant, and we marvel at how we’ve survived without it. On one end, it’s a 3-pin JST connector that works with a lot of our sensors, LCDs, etc. On the other end are 3 male pins that go into a breadboard. It’s that simple. Now you can plug your serial LCD into a breadboard without having to mash the bare wires into the holes.
That’s it for this week. Be sure to check back next week for more new stuff. Thanks for reading and watching!
We dig in to the Octocat's API
Make one for everyone you know. EVERYONE.
Congrats to our five Photon shield champions!

The Particle Photon is here and ready to ship!
If you want to write code for the Particle Photon, an online, "cloud" IDE isn't your only option. Check out our "Photon Development Guide" to see how you can set up a Photon development environment of your own.
