The Parallax 40000 P8X32A QuickStart is a simple and accessible development platform for the P8X32A Propeller microcontroller.
The QuickStart is an evaluation board for the Propeller. As an open-source reference design the QuickStart board provides basic Propeller circuitry. Developers may use our PCB layout files as their own to speed their project towards completion. As a project board the QuickStart is fully expandable and provides unimpeded access to all I/O pins through an expansion header but includes some button inputs and LEDs to demonstrate programming. With USB power and a selection of QuickStart Project examples it's also the fastest way to get up and running.
- Propeller P8X32A microcontroller
- Expansion header provides access to Vss, Vdd, 32 I/O pins
- 5 MHz crystal on board may be disabled by removing SMT jumper, allowing replacement with external through-hole crystal
- Eight resistive touch buttons
- Eight buffered LEDs
