Particle Electron Carrier Board - Full Project Documentation


Thanks to the great help I have received from the community. I have completed the design and 6 months of testing for an Electron Carrier board optimized for outdoor use. I have documented this on on this Project Page.

In short the board has these features:

  • Circuit protection on all external lines
  • push button power for DC-IN and LiPo
  • Hard reset functionality - the Electron can power-cycle itself
  • 256k FRAM memory
  • TMP-36 temperature sensor
  • 5V Boost converter so it has both 3.3V and 5V i2c busses broken out
  • External watchdog timer for extra reliability

If anyone has comments, suggestions or requests for the next version, please feel free to comment here or on Hackster.




Thanks for posting!
