I’ve been working on an IoT product for the last year+. It’s getting quite close to being a launchable product after a huge amount of work. I’m a big fan of Particle and I think the new modular Gen3 architecture is great. I was intending to use the new modular architecture that includes the B-series and I have designed circuit boards around that.
At some point in time Particle was planning to launch an A-series (similar to the argon) which was to be wifi and BLE as well as an X-series (similar to the xenon) which was BLE only. The X series seemed to disappear a while ago and I have noticed that the A-series has now also disappeared from the website, it was previously described as “specifications available soon”.
I understand the business and development logic behind these changes. However it would be great to hear an update about this product. This is my key question…
- Is the A-series still planned?
I would obviously love to know exact dates for releases and be able to pre-order some parts but I thought Particle wouldn’t want to reveal that kind of information.
However, I think it is reasonable to ask whether these products are still planned. It would allow Particle’s customers to plan and make design decisions now. For example if the A Series is cancelled I will need to reconfigure some software to work with the B series.
