Parallax Prop Plug

The Prop Plug provides a USB-to-serial port connection that is convenient for microcontroller programming and communication. This tiny device is capable of asynchronous communication at up to a 3 M baud with both 3.3-volt and 5.0-volt devices such as the Propeller and BASIC Stamp. The Prop Plug slips onto a 4-pin, 0.1" spaced header, allowing both printed circuit boards and breadboards to provide in-circuit programming capability.

Key Features:

  • USB to serial port conversion
  • Capable of asynchronous communication up to 3 M baud
  • Compatible with 3.3 and 5 V microcontrollers
  • Connects to a 4-pin, 0.1" spaced header
  • Includes USB A to Mini B Cable

Technical Details:

  • Voltage requirements: 5 VDC (supplied by USB port)
  • Current requirements: ~15mA (typical)
  • Communication: asynchronous serial @ up to 3Mbps
  • Dimensions: 1.27 x 0.51 x 0.31 in (32.25 x 12.85 x 7.75 mm)
