First Project: Led Blink

In the previous post we have successfully set up Photon. In this post we will flash some code and check how our device works.

Step 1: Materials Needed.

  1. A Breadboard (
  2. Power Supply unit (
  3. An led 5mm
  4. A Resistor of some smaller value
  5. Jumper Wires

Step 2: Connect the Components.

Take an led connect the positive(anode) terminal to D6 pin and negative(cathode) to GND through a resistor of some smaller value.

Power supply is connected to Vin and GND of Photon board.

Connections and Hardware setup are all over. Now the software part.

Step 3: Particle Web IDE.

Opens up the Web IDE. Where you can type the code, Save and Flash it to the photon device. The video below gives a detailed explanation.
