Parallax PropStick USB

The PropStick USB is a rapid development tool for the powerful 8-cog multiprocessing Propeller microcontroller. The flexibility of a 40-in DIP package is combined with the convenience of an onboard Propeller P8X32A-M44, EEPROM, voltage regulator, removable 5 MHz crystal, reset button, and USB interface. This module is ready for rapid protoyping use in a breadboard, perfboard with wire-wrap, or in a 600 mil 40-pin socket soldered to a PCB.

The PropStick USB is intended to be used in a breadboard or other through-hole design.

Key Features:

  • Propeller P8X32A-M44 chip
  • 32 KB 24LC256-I/ST EEPROM
  • FTDI FT232RG and mini USB connector
  • USB data transfer indicator LEDs
  • 5 MHz crystal in a removable socket
  • 3.3 V, 500 mA voltage regulator
  • Reset pushbutton switch

Note: The PropStick USB is not intended to be plugged into 40-pin sockets made for the Parallax BASIC Stamp 2p40, due to differences in programming interface, pinouts, and supply voltages.

Technical Details:

  • Power requirements: regulated 6 - 9 VDC.
  • Communication: 232R USB interface to PC for programming and bidirectional communication
  • Dimensions: 2.0 x 0.6 x 0.45 in (51 x 16 x 12 mm)
  • Operating temp range: +32 to +158 °F (0 to +70 °C)
