      The C3 is a true Credit-Cardsized Computer that augments the Propeller chip with a number of onboard peripherals to facilitate large scale and complex applications.

      Designed in cooperation with Nurve Networks LLC and Andr LaMothe, the Propeller C3 is the newest Propeller-based application platform from Parallax. Ready to support a wide array of peripherals, this system is ideal for industrial control, monitoring systems, high-level languages, robotics, gaming, and more.

      The C3 was designed to be compatible with other Propeller-based development boards such as the Propeller Demo Board and the HYDRA, so porting applications is a snap. Additionally, the C3 uses a novel SPI bus design that allows all the onboard peripherals to be accessed with a single SPI bus (3 signals) along with chip-select logic (2 signals) that supports up to 8 devices in total. Thus, the IO impact of all the onboard peripherals is minimal.

      The Propeller C3 Board is available in two packages alone as the (#32209) Propeller C3 Board and in the Propeller C3 Full Kit (#32205)
