#Propeller HAT will get you flying in the world of microcontrollers…
We’ve brought the much adored Parallax Propeller microcontroller to the Raspberry Pi in an experimentation-friendly HAT format that includes a mini breadboard for prototyping and breaks out a whole array of signals from both Pi and Propeller.
Ideal for servo twiddling, robot building, IO-expanding, VGA driving, or rockin’ to classic tunes with sound chip emulators like SIDcog. Parallax’s Object Exchange is packed with code examples and libraries: http://obex.parallax.com/
- Stonkin’ 8-Core Micro handles menial IO tasks for your Pi
- 30 general purpose IO pins controllable by any of the 8 cores
- Easy to program using the Pi-compatible Propeller IDE and SPIN language
- On-board 170pt breadboard for hosting your experiments
- Breaks out Pi SPI, I2C and 15 other pins
- Fully open-source hardware, right down to the microcontroller!
- Supplied as a kit with female headers
I’m currently working on documentation for Propeller HAT, aiming to give users an intro to the SPIN language that it speaks in- you can start using and ( hopefully! ) feeding back on this now: https://github.com/pimoroni/propeller-hat/tree/master/documentation
