NEW PRODUCT – Parallax Propeller Activity Board


NEW PRODUCT – Parallax Propeller Activity BoardIntroducing the Propeller Activity Board!


Do more with eight cores. Harnessing the power of the 8-core Propeller microcontroller is now easier than ever before! With built-in sockets and pre-written C libraries, Parallax provides the resources for you to bring your project from idea to reality.


The Propeller Activity Board gives you direct access to the most popular Propeller peripherals, including:

  • XBee socket — control or receive data from your invention wirelessly
  • microSD card holder — log sensor data or add WAV files
  • Mini audio/stereo jack — listen to those WAV files or synthesized speech
  • 3-pin headers — quickly connect to servos, serial LCDs, etc.
  • Breadboard — build and rebuild circuits without soldering (or desoldering!)
  • A/D and D/A converters — read or set the voltage your project needs
  • USB or power supply — the choice is yours

Get started today by exploring the Propeller C Tutorials and see just how easy it is to digitize your creativity.


Technical Details:


  • Built-in 8-core Propeller P8X32A microcontroller, 64 KB EEPROM and 5 MHz crystal oscillator
  • Breadboard, sockets for power and I/O access, and six servo ports with power-select jumpers for easy prototyping
  • Automatically selects between USB and external power sources and provides USB over-current protection
  • 6–9 V center-positive 2.1 mm barrel jack for external power supplies
  • Convenient reset button and 3-position power switch
  • Onboard mini stereo-audio jack
  • Built-in microSD card slot for datalogging, WAV files, etc.
  • XBee wireless module socket simplifies advanced applications
  • Dedicated analog header sockets provide four A/D 12-bit inputs and two buffered variable-resolution D/A outputs
  • 4-pin header for connecting I/O pins to the XBee RF socket
  • Indicator lights show the status of system power, servo power, two analog output levels, XBee Tx/Rx, and USB Tx/Rx
  • 3.3 V and 5 V linear voltage regulators
