Propeller Education Kit: Textbook, Parts and 40-pin P8X32A MCU US$99.99

Propeller Education Kit: Textbook, Parts and 40-pin P8X32A MCU

This kit with lab book features breadboards and breadboard-friendly versions of the P8X32A-D40 Propeller microcontroller, EEPROM and other core components, making it easy and inexpensive for students to experiment while being able replace parts as needed.

This kit will have you building a functional system from the ground up, wiring all the support components to the microcontroller itself. If you don't want to get down to that nitty-gritty level, you can get a version of this kit with a PropStick USB which incorporates the CPU, EEPROM, reset button, voltage regulator, programming interface and all the support circuitry they require onto one 40-pin DIP module. This will decrease your project build time and increase available breadboard space.

The Propeller Education Series is designed for those with previous microcontroller programming and electronics experience. If you are new to programming and electronics, we recommend the BASIC Stamp Activity Kit.

Propeller Education Kit Features

  • Propeller Education Kit Labs: Fundamentals Book A comprehensive series of labs covering Setup and Testing, I/O and Timing, Methods and Cogs, Objects, and Counter Modules and Circuit Applications
  • Propeller DIP Plus Kit A Propeller 40-pin DIP microcontroller plus all the electronic components and connectors for a fully functional system on a breadboard
  • Prop Plug A USB-to-serial programming and communication tool. In addition to quick Propeller program downloads, it supports bi-directional Propeller-PC communication at up to 3 Mbps
  • PE Kit Project Parts All the parts you'll need to work through the Startup and Fundamentals labs in the Propeller Education series, chosen with students' needs and budget in mind. Selected to demonstrate Propeller circuit design and programming concepts, it provides a solid components foundation as well as a launch pad to more advanced topics and specialized kits
  • Interconnecting Breadboards Three breadboards and four power rails interconnect and provide plenty of space to build the PE Platform and projects. Featuring extra sockets right where you need them, these quality boards make it easy to keep both simple and complex circuits well organized. With the Propeller and system electronics in the middle of the PE Platform, project circuits can fan out from I/O pins to breadboards on either side and terminate at the outer power rails
  • Plastic Storage Box with adjustable compartments for your PE Platform project, parts, and room for a few extra tools as well. Great for organization, storage, or even transport in a backpack
