Propeller Education Kit is the hardware platform for the program, containing everything a student needs to get started except a 9V battery and a PC. Students begin by building and testing the foundation Propeller circuit with a P8X32A-D40 chip, regulated 3.3V and 5V power, power indicator LED, external crystal oscillator, reset button, 32 KB EEPROM, and Prop Plug for programming via a PC USB connection. A pin map sticker for the Propeller DIP chip greatly facilitates accurate wiring. The components are also sold separately as the Propeller DIP Plus Kit.

Kit Contents:

Propeller Education Kit Labs: Fundamentals Book - A comprehensive series of labs covering Setup and Testing, I/O and Timing, Methods and Cogs, Objects, and Counter Modules and Circuit Applications

Prop Plug - A USB to serial programming and communication tool. In addition to quick Propeller program downloads, it supports bidirectional Propeller-PC communication at up to 3 Mbps.

PE Kit Project Parts - All the parts you’ll need to work through the Startup and Fundamentals labs in the Propeller Education series, chosen with students’ needs and budget in mind. Selected to demonstrate Propeller circuit design and programming concepts, it provides a solid components foundation as well as a launch pad to more advanced topics and specialized kits.

Interconnecting Breadboards - 3 breadboards and 4 power rails interconnect and provide plenty of space to build the PE Platform and projects. Featuring extra sockets right where you need them, these quality boards make it easy to keep both simple and complex circuits well organized. With the Propeller and system electronics in the middle of the PE Platform, project circuits can fan out from I/O pins to breadboards on either side and terminate at the outer power rails. No more circuit spaghetti!

Plastic Storage Box with adjustable compartments for your PE Platform project, parts, and room for a few extra tools as well. Great for organization, storage, or even transport in a backpack.
