When Particle introduced the Electron, they made it possible to easily add a cellular connection to IoT projects, prototypes, and products. Now, combining the Electron with CE plug-and-play hardware allows you expanded access and control hundreds of devices from anywhere in the world – wire and solder free.
In fact, we love the Electron so much that in addition to providing code samples for many of our products, we chose to use its footprint as the basis for our IoT Motherboards. This means that Electrons (both 2G and 3G) plug directly into all IoT Motherboards, no adapter, wires, or soldering needed.
If you’re an Electron fan, you’ll also want to grab a Particle Electron I2C Shield which adapts the Electron for use with our entire array of sensors and controllers.
