Propeller 2 Multicore Microcontroller

The Propeller 2 is now available for prototype and production. The P2 has eight high-speed cores which you can use for projects of all types, especially those requiring video, signal measurement/generation, or our favorite application of all — learning something new! 

While documentation and and examples are maturing, you’ll start with a very active community on the Propeller 2 Live Forums.  This picture is a community contribution for controlling an LED panel. The projects are done openly and shared on the weekly Propeller 2 Live Forum.  

P2 Edge and P2 Edge Breadboard Combination

The P2 Edge Module may be embedded directly into products or prototyped in the P2 Edge Module Breadboard. The P2 Edge Module is a six-layer PCB, containing the essential P2 microcontroller and support components. The P2 Edge Breadboard is a vast prototype space that also connects to our P2 accessories. 

Download the Propeller Tool for Windows

The Propeller Tool for Windows now supports Propeller 1 and 2 for Spin1/Spin2 and PASM coding. This is the official tool supported by Parallax, yet the Propeller 2 may be programmed on other development tools in various languages (Python, BASIC, or C).

Cyber: bot combines Python, circuit building, and cybersecurity

Cyber:bot combines Python, circuit building, and cybersecurity with a tangible hardware dimension to science, CTE, and cybersecurity programs. Cyber:bot was developed as a cooperative project between cyber.org and Parallax.com. The cyber:bot merges a micro:bit with the Parallax small robot form factor that’s a proven STEM success in classrooms. 

Gripper 3.0 for small robots

Designed by a mechanical engineer who studied on Parallax robots at NYU-Tandon School of Engineering and manufactured on our CNC machines in Rocklin, California, the Gripper 3.0 is a precise, smooth-action, single-servo grab-and-lift actuator. 

Compatible with the Boe-Bot, Shield-Bot for Arduino, cyber:bot, and ActivityBot 360. Add a Laser Ping, Ping))) Ultrasonic Sensor, RFID or ColorPal sensors to locate and identify objects.

Cybersecurity: Radio Data

Cybersecurity: Radio Data tutorial posted. The approach is similar to how apps and servers exchange data, with packets containing key-value pairs. Thanks to MicroPython’s dictionary and string features, this easy and powerful technique takes just a couple lines
of code.
