Propeller Starter Kit + Official Guide

This kit pairs the comprehensive Propeller Manual with the highly capable Propeller Demo Board and The Official Guide for an attractive savings. By following the steps in the Spin Tutorial that is included in the free Propeller Tool Software’s Help file, you will get a step-by-step introduction to programming on the Propeller Demo Board. This board is pre-wired to connectors for interfacing with devices such as a mouse, keyboard, TB or VGA monitor, and speakers, and is also configured for immediate use by many objects from the Propeller Object Exchange.

This starter kit is sold with version 1.1 of the (#122-32000) Propeller Manual. USB A to Mini B cable included. Power supply sold separately.

The Propeller Manual v1.1 begins with an introduction to the Propeller chip’s architecture and Spin programming language, debugging techniques, and sensor interfacing. Then, the remainder of the book introduces eight diverse and powerful applications, ending with a speech synthesis demonstration written by the Propeller chip’s inventor, Chip Gracey.
Numerous illustrations and example programs accompany each application. Example source code and other related resources are available for free download from!
