Overview

Harnessing the power of the 8-core Propeller microcontroller is now easier than ever before. The built-in Propeller P8X32A programming system is pre-wired to the most popular peripherals, making experimenting fast and fun.

Supported by the new Propeller C Learning System that includes a programming tool and a suite of tutorials featuring simple circuits and libraries with code samples for core devices and sensors, multicore programming has never been simpler.

Key Features:

  • XBee socket — control or receive data from your invention wirelessly  
  • microSD card holder — log sensor data or play sound files
  • Mini audio/stereo jack — listen to WAV files, sound effects, or synthesized speech  
  • 3-pin headers — quickly connect servos, serial LCDs, etc.  
  • Breadboard — build and rebuild circuits without soldering (or desoldering!)  
  • A/D and D/A converters — read or set the voltages for battery monitoring or sensors
  • Power via USB or power supply/battery pack — the choice is yours
