Product ID: 32111


Discontinued. The Propeller Professional Development Board (PPDB) is a high-quality, fully-integrated development platform for the Propeller P8X32A multicore microcontroller.  A wide variety of peripheral connectors and typical I/O devices such as LEDs and buttons are built into the board, providing the developer with an ideal platform for rapid Propeller project development.

Key Features:

  • On-board voltage regulators provide 5 V and 3.3 V supplies for your application circuits   
  • Contains the most common I/O interfaces for the Propeller chip on one board  
  • Large breadboard area gives plenty of room for additional components and devices

Note: Requires a power supply and a USB A to Mini-B cable (#805-00006) for programming. Recommended power supplies are 12 VDC 1 Amp (#750-00007) or 7.5 VDC 1 Amp (#750-00009).
