R.T Nollet of Melbourne Australia has built a Modular development system based around the Parallax Propeller(TM)- Initially aimed at the educational market - this product is also ideal for anyone wishing to quickly implement a modular scalable solution.
The system is a comprehensive package of modules based around a Parallax Propeller(TM) motherboard - the desired module is attached to the motherboard via the supplied cable assembly. This allows the user to quickly implement a tailored microprocessor based solution in minutes !
The PropBus MotherBoard
The motherboard (Fig. 1) contains a terminal block to attach the supply - 2 on board regulators 5v and 3.3v (and associated passive components) a socketed DIP packaged P8X32A processor (Parallax Propeller) to allow for easy removal/replacement.
