Holiday Bundles On Sale through December!

Robots for beginners, sensors for hobby projects, development kits for experienced designers — we have put together ten hardware bundles with build-in savings to make your shopping easier!

Propeller 2 Live Forum Events

We just posted invitations for a dozen Propeller 2 Live Forums between December 2021 and April 2022. These events provide opportunities to learn about our new P2 Multicore Microcontroller through interactive trainings and to hear from users who have put the P2 into their products. 

Gripper 3.0 and LaserPING Product Bundle

We’ve made the most interesting, useful Gripper for our small robots. It’s compatible with everything we make: cyber:bot, ActivityBot 360, Boe-Bot, and Shield-Bot for Arduino. With this bundle, we’ve thrown in the LaserPING so you can accurately locate and pick up an object (while saving some big dollars!)

P2 Edge Revision C

The P2 Edge Revision C includes an SD card socket for bootup, *.wav file/data storage, video/image storage, or code files. The high-precision TCXO oscillator keeps accurate time over months and years; and
the 5-16 VDC input voltage provides more flexibility to product developers. 

micro:bit v1.5 is in Stock Again

The micro:bit v1.5 modules are back in stock as the CLUB version. The micro:bit v2.0 will not be available again until 2022, so we suggest educators purchase the v1.5 for their programs. 

Propeller 2 Quick Bytes: 26 Code Examples to Get Started

Quick Bytes cover the P2 programming topics requested by our customers. The examples demonstrate programming tools, smart pin modes (ADC, DAC, serial, PWM), communication protocols (SPI, serial, RF), RGB LEDs, games, and motors. The P2’s parallel processing ability and software-configurable peripherals let these functions can occur on any GPIO!   

LaserPING 2m Rangefinder

Measure distances of objects in the 2-200 cm range with single-pin communication and code-compatibility with the Ping))) Ultrasonic Distance Sensors. Highly functional solution for situations involving angled detection surfaces, soft objects, or through clear acrylic!

P2 Edge and P2 Edge Breadboard Bundle

Developers of all backgrounds are getting started with the Propeller 2 Multicore Microcontroller. We’ve assembled a bundle of the most popular items you’re purchasing, including the P2 Edge Module, P2 Edge Breakout Breadboard, and PropPlug with cables into a single package at a discount. Consider joining the P2 Live Forums to ask questions and get up to speed!
