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.
