(Updated 2013-08-08 for SimpleIDE 0.9.4 and its Learn folder's Simple Libraries and Examples -Propeller C Tutorial Archive)
This C-language tutorial for the 8-core Propeller microcontroller. It features the Propeller Activity Board. Other Propeller boards will work in most cases; check each activity's circuit for notes.
What it's about
This set "a-la-carte" collection of lessons shows you how to interface a variety of devices to the multicore Propeller microcontroller. Each page includes a schematic, wiring diagram and test code with C libraries that make the programming simple. You do not need to do these in order, just pick what interests you. We will let you know if two lessons are meant to work together.
Keep checking back, because we will keep adding more.
Before you start
- Set up the SimpleIDE software and your Propeller board
- Update your Learn Libraries
- Try Propeller C - Start Simple if you are new to the Propeller microcontroller and/or C programming.
- If you have never built circuits on a breadboard before, take a quick look at Breadboarding Basics.
After you finish
You will be ready to design your own projects that combine these devices.
