Product ID 32212


Parallax’s Propeller Proto Board is a low cost, high quality solution for permanent projects using the Propeller chip. To save the user some expense, the USB programming interface is not included on the Propeller Proto Board; we suggest you purchase a Prop Plug for programming your Propeller Proto Boards.

This board is also ready for use with the Prop Clip, and is also compatible with the USB2SER with the addition of a 4-pin header (not included).
