The Propeller Activity Board gives you direct access to the most popular Propeller peripherals, including:

  • XBee socket — control or receive data from your invention wirelessly
  • microSD card holder — log sensor data or add WAV files
  • Mini audio/stereo jack — listen to those WAV files or synthesized speech
  • 3-pin headers — quickly connect to servos, serial LCDs, etc.
  • Breadboard — build and rebuild circuits without soldering (or desoldering!)
  • A/D and D/A converters — read or set the voltage your project needs
  • USB or power supply — the choice is yours

Get started today by exploring the Propeller C Tutorials and see just how easy it is to digitize your creativity.
