Propeller FLiP Microcontroller Module

Parallax offers the breadboard-friendly Propeller module which makes learning fun and prototyping incredibly fast

Image of Parallax Inc's Propeller FLiP Microcontroller ModuleParallax's Propeller FLiP microcontroller module is compact, convenient, and designed with students in mind.

With the Parallax Propeller FLiP module, students can learn circuit-building and programming with BlocklyProp graphical coding and makers can easily incorporate the board into projects, also using BlocklyProp to get up and running quickly. Design engineers can embed Propeller FLiP modules into production hardware, using the Propeller programming language of their choice.

The breadboard-friendly Propeller FLiP microcontroller module packs a multitude of features into this small, easy-to-use form-factor.  The board incorporates on-board USB for both communication and power, several on-board LEDs, a high-performance 3.3 V switching regulator, USB and reverse-polarity protection, and informative, easy-to-read labelling.

BlocklyProp’s ease of use combined with pin information printed right on top of the module makes learning and prototyping easy.  The Propeller FLiP has roughly the same pin-out as previous 40-pin DIP Propeller modules.  This design provides improved damage-minimization if inserted in reverse.  When coupled with exceptional power management, the FLiP is a robust module ideally suited for classrooms, projects, and finished products alike.
