About this product


Product overview

• Expand your options with this microcontroller board
• Comes with a powerful eight-core propeller microcontroller from Parallax
• Connect to even more with this 170 socket breadboard
• Compatible with the Raspberry Pi A+, B+ Pi 2 and Pi 3
• Some assembly and soldering required

What can I do with the Propeller HAT?
With this Pimoroni Propeller HAT, you can run multiple tasks simultaneously without taking performance away from your core processor. The HAT has a powerful eight-core propeller microcontroller that connects to your Raspberry Pi’s serial port for programming. With this, you can perform up to eight tasks – one for each core. The microcontroller breaks out its remaining 30 pins for general IO use.

What can I connect?
The Pimoroni Propeller HAT comes with a 170-socket breadboard and female headers, which require soldering, for you to connect your project to the microcontroller. Using Python IO commands, you can transform your Propeller HAT into a 30-pin IO expander or a PWM driver. Use your imagination and with this microcontroller you can create a Morse code machine, sound emulator, or even start building your dream robot.

What software is needed?
The Propeller HAT can be programmed straight from the Raspberry Pi. The microcontroller uses Propeller IDE to write SPIN code, openSpin to compile and p1load to load. This is a great way to learn how to use SPIN code and how to get the best use out of a microcontroller. The propeller’s software is fully open source, including the tools needed to program it and the code for describing the hardware for more information visit here.
