Hardware to bring your device online
Our cloud-connected microcontrollers power your product
Building an IoT product starts with getting your device online. Particle makes this easy because all the hardware we make is designed to get your device connected in minutes – over Wi-Fi, cellular (2G/3G/LTE), or mesh.
Our cloud-connected microcontrollers are powered by Device OS – a lightweight operating system for embedded IoT devices.
Get your first prototype up and running in minutes with our easy-to-use, affordable, and open source hardware development kits.
When you're ready to scale up, our industrial-grade connectivity modules are secure, reliable, and fully-certified.
Connectivity that works out of the box
Networking, protocols, security, and even SIM cards are built in
Don't waste your time building your own network stack. Communication protocols, encryption, and access to our Device Cloud are built into the Device OS. If you're building a cellular product, we provide SIM cards and data plans; no messy carrier negotiations required.
Cloud software to manage your fleet of devices
Every Particle device connects to our Device Cloud – a secure, scalable, and reliable gateway between your devices and the web.
Security is built in from the ground up
Secure by default
Every message sent through Particle is encrypted and secure. No plaintext allowed.
Each device is given its own private key, so unauthorized hardware can't sneak into your fleet.
We monitor our servers and the security landscape to ensure your devices stay locked down.
Control who can manage, control, and read data from your devices.
