Gadget Gangster Propeller Platform

The Propeller Platform Module (pictured below) includes an 80Mhz, 160 MIPS Parallax Propeller microcontroller, 32kb of EEPROM with space for a second EEPROM, 5V and 3.3V Voltage Regulators and the pin sockets to add additional Gadget Gangster Platform modules like the LCD UI Module or the Prototyper Module.

All Gadget Gangster Platform Modules utilize .1" pin spacing and are breadboard compatible. Here's a little video demonstration of the LCD UI and Propeller Modules:


What is the Gadget Gangster Platform?
The Gadget Gangster Platform is a lot like the Arduino with a few improvements on the basic idea;

-Modules (a.k.a. shields) can be connected to each other on top and bottom. For example, you might have a Propeller module in the middle, an LCD UI on the top, and a prototyper on the bottom. We've got a few initial modules to start, and we'll continue to expand on the selection with more modules and microcontrollers.

-Pin spacing is .1". This makes the Platform compatible with breadboards, and it lets you use Platform modules in combination with other project boards.

-The board footprint is 3.8" x 2.5", which is the same footprint as ExpressPCB's MiniBoard service. This makes it easier to add your own custom module.

-Because they're featured in Jon Williams' Spin Zone column in Nuts and Volts, they're well documented. The Propeller Platform Module will be the basis for many of projects described in his upcoming columns and the LCD UI module will featured in his September '09 column.

-Platform Modules are licensed under the MIT license (essentially public domain), giving you the flexibility to use the design in commercial products or anything else without restriction.[/list]

I'm super-excited about these new project boards. There's more info on Gadget Gangster but if you have any questions, you can just reply to this thread.
