What is a Propeller?
The Propeller is a multicore microcontroller chip which easily facilitates a variety of inteligent electronics projects from automated controls to video game devices. It can be programmed in a variety of languages including ASSEMBLY, BASIC, C, and SPIN.
Who uses a Propeller Chip?
Due to its diversity, the Propeller Chip may be used for many types of applications. Most users appreciate the overall processing power and I/O capabilities. Hobbyists like the powerful yet easy language while robot builders and process control engineers appreciate the parallel processing capabilities. Many find the on-board video generation and easy connection to popular PC peripherals reduces the need for additional support components.
Project examples which incorporate the Propeller micro can be found here.
So what is it like to attend an Expo??
“The expo was absolutely great. I think the best part was not long after I got there I was talking to a guy about this demo he had set up and low and behold it was Chip himself with the FPGA of the Prop II. I’m already looking forward to it after seeing it and hearing about what to expect. 🙂 Now to decide whether to sleep or play with my new proto boards”.
“It was a real pleasure to meet everyone, especially tpw. You are one of the brightest and most pleasant young men I have ever met. After seeing everything at the expo next year maybe I will finally get up the courage to start using that Propeller that has been sitting in my closet for a month or two. I hope to see everyone again next year, and I’m sure I’ll bump into everyone here on the forums”.
The Expo rocked!
“I’d like to take this time to thank all that showed up at the Expo, Shared their work and Ideas and allowed me to put a face to the People I chat with and get help from, from this forum. I would also like to thank OBC, for allowing me the chance to be part of my first Expo ever. I showed off my version of the mini Lap Top, and what I done with it, and I really was surprised with the great response I received from You that came. THANKS!!! Special thanks to Chip Gracey and Paul Baker. Hope the People at Parallax enjoy the name tags and Lanyards. SEE YOU NEXT YEAR”!!!!
“This was just the kick in the butt i needed to dig out and dust off my prop. I even broke down and bought a decent soldering station so that I could make cool things like everybody else”.
