Overview

Pair this bundle of Propeller Activity Kit Parts with a Propeller Activity Board and programming cable (not included), and you will have all of the electronic components needed to complete the activities in the "What's a Multicore Microcontroller?" text.

This parts kit includes a selection of input sensors, output devices, integrated circuits, and passive components for creating a wide variety of circuits on your Activity Board. Build your electronics skills and learn to use these common components with the circuit-building and C-language programming exercises included in the "What's a Multicore Microcontroller" text. Chapters 1 to 6 are available now as a free preview PDF download in advance of the full version release later this year.

Key Features:

  • Build simple circuits with schematics and wiring diagrams
  • Write programs in Propeller C to control the circuits
  • Send signals by blinking LEDs
  • Sense contact with pushbuttons
  • Read a control knob using a potentiometer
  • Measure light with a phototransistor
  • Control motion with a servo motor
  • Play tunes on a piezo speaker
  • Play WAV files from a microSD Card
  • Display data on a 7-segment LED
  • Combine several of the above circuits to prototype an invention

Note: Propeller Activity Board WX (#32912) and USB A to Mini B programming cable (#805-00006) required; not included.

Note: The "What's a Multicore Microcontroller?" text is still a work-in-progress. Chapters 1-6 are currently available to preview as a free PDF download (in Downloads and Documentation, below).  The full version will become available at a later date.
