Propeller Project Board USB

  • 32810: Propeller Project Board USB
  • 32810: Propeller Project Board USB Back View
Product ID: 32810


This board is for projects that need a permanent home. Its low cost, feature-rich, and simple design is ideal for most any project using the Propeller P8X32A multicore microcontroller. The core Propeller programming circuitry is built into the board, with access to all 32 I/O pins.  It is programmable in visual BlocklyProp, Propeller C,  and its native Spin and Assembly languages.

Thoughtful features such as power and over-voltage LEDs and well-placed labels on both sides of the board help make circuit-building fast and accurate.  The reset button, USB, power, and optional connectors are all set at right angles for easy access when the finished project is mounted in an enclosure.
