Propeller 1 Microcontrollers

The Parallax P8X32A (Propeller) is an 8-core 32-bit microprocessor designed to provide high-speed processing for embedded systems.It is available in two package formats: 40-pin DIP and 44-pin QFP SMT. Ideal for real-time control applications because the task switching between cores is fully deterministic.

Clock frequency: up to 80MHz
Performance: up to 160MIPS
No of cores (COGs): 8
Global ROM: 32KB
Global RAM: 32KB
COG RAM: 2KB each
32 x GPIO pins
2 x multi-function counters/COG
1 x Video generator/COG
Power supply: +2.7 to +3.6Vdc
Operating temperature range: -55 to +125°C

The Propeller™ 1 microprocessor chip makes it easy to rapidly develop embedded applications. Its eight 32-bit processors (COGs) can operate simultaneously, either independently or cooperatively, sharing common resources through a central hub. The developer has full control over how and when each cog is employed; there is no compiler-driven or operating system-driven splitting of tasks among multiple cogs. A shared system clock keeps each cog on the same time reference, allowing for true deterministic timing and synchronization. Two programming languages are available: the easy-to-learn high-level Spin, and Propeller Assembly which can execute at up to 160 MIPS (20 MIPS per COG).
