Photon Wearable Shield (SparkFun)
This Photon Wearable Shield integrates the WiFi-enabled Photon to a wearable project. The SparkFun Photon Wearable Shield is circular and it carries Broken-Out pins on the Photon. The large sewing pins are more suitable especially the project involves conductive paint. Using the conductive thread becomes convenient if the size of the sewing pins is relatively larger.
Features of SparkFun Photon Wearable Shield
- 120MHz ARM Cortex-M3
- Built-in WiFi
- Compatible with the Core as well as Photon
- 24x sewing tabs (large size)
- Header and connectors are pre-soldered
- 8mm thick board is more convenient for sewing (the standard board thickness is 1.6mm)
Description of Photon Wearable Shield (SparkFun)
The pre-soldered connectors and headers on the SparkFun Photon Wearable Shield make the job easier. If, however, you feel the need for soldering flexible wires, you can opt for the smaller pins. The smaller form factor is ideal for the IoT projects which require Cloud-Connectivity.
