Propeller Multicore Concept
P1 and P2 Hub RAM Interfaces
The Propeller microcontrollers’ eight processing cogs each operate independently or cooperatively, communicating through shared resources at-will. Each cog has direct access to its internal memory and shares equal access to all I/O pins and system resources. This nimble design affords flexible processing power and easy adaption to numerous uses, freeing developers from task-specific ICs while reducing part counts and design-to-production time.
Processing is swiftly performed in isolation within individual cogs. Shared resources are accessed through a time-sharing “Hub” mechanism, conceptually demonstrated by these animations. See the table below them for a feature comparison.
