Parallax have recently released a new microprocessor to their range - the 'propeller'. At first I thought it was going to be Stamp 3 but it appears quite a bit more original - and cheap at $25! Apparently it is a true parallel processor - it has 8 cores. It can run at 8Mhz and has 32K RAM / 32K ROM.
It looks real nice and I was wandering if anyone here has had any experience with this chip and if there are any UK distributors about. Also, is this 'Spin' language any good or will I be having to use assembler anyway? The examples on the site seem to look very much like assembly with a slight hint towards C with the functions.Thanks, Brendan
