What can you do with eight 32-bit processors (COGs) in one chip? Real simultaneous multi-processing! The new Propeller chip is the result of our internal design
team working for eight years. The Propeller chip was designed at the transistor level by schematic using our own tools to prototype the product. The Propeller
is programmed in both a high-level language, called Spin TM, and low-level (assembly) language. With the set of pre-built Parallax “objects” for video, mice,
keyboards, RF, LCDs, stepper motors and sensors your Propeller application is a matter of high-level integration. Propeller represents the first custom all-silicon
product designed by Parallax. The Propeller is recommended for those with previous microcontroller experience.
