Device OS 5.6.0 is now available in Device Restore DFU, Device Restore JTAG, hex file generator, etc.. Release notes are updated in the docs release note viewer.
When you click on a search result and the search query is present in a header in the page, it will now be scrolled into view. This previously worked on the Device OS API reference, but now it works on all pages.
Added instructions for copying and moving integrations.
Added a warning for BLE.disconnect that it cannot be called from a BLE callback.
Added a note the software timers reference about how certain timer semantics are undefined by the underlying FreeRTOS timers.
Oman has been added the list of countries that may encounter permanent roaming restrictions.
The B523MEA and ARGNTRAY50 are deprecated. They were previously NRND until the stock was depleted, and that has occurred.
The new docs search is now available by clicking on the magnifying glass icon in the top navigation menu.
- Vastly improved result quality.
- Clicking on a link then using Back brings you back to the search results. A checkmark next to the item shows which ones you've already visited in this session.
- Closing the search overlay and opening it again brings back your last search results.
- Search is now powered by Google but requests are anonymous, not tagged with your Particle account or Google account.
T-Mobile's support for LTE Cat M1 (not just LTE Cat NB IoT) in the United States is now official so the footnote has been removed.
The web device doctor, when used with the P2 and Photon 2, now has an option in Advanced Options for selecting the Wi-Fi antenna (internal, external, or leave unchanged).
The Monitor One (MON404E01C01KIT) is now generally available.
Fixed a bug in the Import devices tool where the device was marked as development if the checkbox was unchecked instead of checked.
Added link to footprint Eagle CAD library, and also information on the restrict areas under the SoM to the Tracker SoM datasheet.
|PHN2MTY||Photon 2, Tray [x50]||Beta||GA|
Updated the description for Ethernet.ready(). On isolated Ethernet, it does not return true, because ready implies that the connection is ready to be used as a cloud connection, and isolated networks can't be used as the cloud connection.
There is a new guide for troubleshooting Windows 10 device driver issues.
If you are experiencing these problems you may have a driver issue:
- No serial device identified in the web-based tools despite using a current version of Chrome or Edge.
- particle serial list returns no results.
- dfu-util -l returns no devices.
If you have a Mac with Apple silicon (M1, M2, M3, ...) and wish to use the Particle CLI natively (not in a Rosetta terminal), see Particle CLI and Mac with Apple silicon.
There are now additional instructions and a firmware example for using Ethernet with a static IP address and an Isolated LAN and using cellular for the cloud connection.
Renamed RS485 pins A and B instead of P and N in the Monitor One Datasheet and Quickstart page.
New What's new page (this page) lists what's new in the Particle docs!
Logic is a serverless computing platform to host the business logic of an IoT product by running scripts in response to events being emitted from devices. Logic beta documentation is now available.
A new page for Classroom setup has tips for using Particle devices in classrooms.
Added a full pin details listing to the P2, Photon 2, BRN404X, B404X, B524, datasheets. The migration guides had these, but the actual datasheets did not. The detail listing includes every interface and feature of each pin, sorted by pin, for example this listing for the P2.
Added a short description before each Designing on Particle video on the video home page.
Fixed a bug in Device Restore USB on the P2 and Photon 2 (RTL872x) where if both prebootloader-part1 and bootloader required an upgrade, the bootloader might not upgrade (even with the flash even if version unchanged option is set). This was most noticeable if upgrading a P2/Photon 2 to 5.3.0 with no Wi-Fi credentials so the bootloader would not upgrade OTA.
Documented analogSetReference() and analogGetReference(), added in 5.3.0 and 4.1.0.
New community integration: ilert, an incident response platform.
All fields in the Tracker Edge and Monitor Edge configuration schemas are now included in the docs. In addition to the longer explanatory text for some tabs in the console, there's now a table format listing of everything in the schema that's generated automatically.
In the M.2 eval board datasheet, there's a new experimental schematic viewer. You can click on the image, and then zoom in, pan, and print from the expanded view. Known bug is that some text appears mirrored when it should not be.
Monitor Edge off-the-shelf release tool! There's also a similar tool for Tracker Edge. This tool will automatically handle downloading an Edge release and upload it as product firmware. It can also update the configuration schema and view release notes for Edge versions.
New shipping FAQ for Route package protection.
The P1 module in strips of 10 is deprecated. All existing stock has been sold and no more will be available.
The Create New Project option in Workbench has a new style! See the documentation for the new project template.
Updated the Asset OTA community examples page. They're now directly included in the docs instead of being links.
Updated the installation instructions for Workbench to use the standard VSCode installer.
Updated Asset OTA page includes additional material and a FAQ with many more technical details.
Device Restore USB now has an option for Monitor Edge v2.
New page that discusses serial numbers and how to use them to map serial number prefixes to SKUs. There's also a big table of SKU to prefix and prefix to SKU.
The stock of BRN310KIT (Boron 2G/3G) has been sold and will no longer be manufactured. The 2G/3G cellular modem on the BRN310 is no longer available.
Documented the number of hardware breakpoints (2 on RTL872x and 4 on nRF52) in the Workbench docs.
There was a problem with the device restore hex files for Device OS 5.5.0 that has been corrected.
On wider windows, the left navigation is now wider, making more of the content readable. Also a number of items in the troubleshooting menu now have shorter names.
Documentation for Asset OTA is now available.
Device Restore USB now supports the Monitor One. You can also select the Tracker Edge or Monitor Edge version separate from the version of Device OS you want to install.
