  • 32210: PropStick USB
Product ID: 32210


NOTE: The Propeller FLiP module is the updated replacement for the discontinued PropStick USB. Same shape, more features, lower price!

The PropStick USB is a rapid development tool for the powerful 8-cog multiprocessing Propeller microcontroller. The flexibility of a 40-in DIP package is combined with the convenience of an onboard Propeller P8X32A-M44, EEPROM, voltage regulator, removable 5 MHz crystal, reset button, and USB interface. This module is ready for rapid protoyping use in a breadboard, perfboard with wire-wrap, or in a 600 mil 40-pin socket soldered to a PCB.

The PropStick USB is intended to be used in a breadboard or other through-hole design.

Key Features:

  • Propeller P8X32A-M44 chip
  • 32 KB 24LC256-I/ST EEPROM
  • FTDI FT232RG and mini USB connector
