Dr. Gavin Garner Talks About Using the Propeller 2 in Mechatronics at University of Virginia
If we could go back to university, we’d take Dr Garner’s Introduction to Mechatronics Class. Steppers, servos, gear motors, closed-loop feedback, sensors and game development are used with the Propeller 2 in his high-energy class! In his opinion “the Propeller 2 is the best microcontroller for mechatronics!”
Propeller 2 Quick Bytes: 26 Code Examples to Get Started
Quick Bytes cover the P2 programming topics requested by our customers. The examples demonstrate programming tools, smart pin modes (ADC, DAC, serial, PWM), communication protocols (SPI, serial, RF), RGB LEDs, games, and motors. The P2’s parallel processing ability and software-configurable peripherals let these functions can occur on any GPIO!
Ping))) Ultrasonic Distance Sensor
The most successful sensor ever created by Parallax is often imitated but never duplicated! With it’s single-pin communication, accurate and repeatable measurements, and code compatibility with the LaserPing, this sensor has found its way into numerous projects in education and industry.
P2 Edge and P2 Edge Breadboard Bundle
Developers of all backgrounds are getting started with the Propeller 2 Multicore Microcontroller. We’ve assembled a bundle of the most popular items you’re purchasing, including the P2 Edge Module, P2 Edge Breakout Breadboard, and PropPlug with cables into a single package at a discount. Consider joining the P2 Live Forums to ask questions and get up to speed!
Future Innovators Fund
With over $5,000.00 of donations from the community and Parallax, we’ve launched the Future Innovators Fund. We send free hardware to students with potential and interest who are otherwise hindered by socioeconomic circumstances or are simply outpacing what’s available at school.
