P2 ES evaluation system prototype wings

February 26, 2020

Last year Parallax released their latest multicore processor, the Propeller2 or P2X8C4M64P to give it, its full name. It’s been a very long time coming and after a few setbacks it is finally here. It’s specs are very good, featuring 8x 32-bit cores (or cogs as Parallax likes to call them), 512K RAM and 64 GPIO with SmartPin features.

I got my P2 evaluation system (ES) board a few weeks back and designed a couple of P2 ES prototyping wings to go with it.

The first prototyping wing (on the right) is a classic proto board with I/O from two GPIO ports. The other prototyping wing is a breadboard design for faster circuit build and test and features a 3x LED’s and 2x switches

I’ve got a few spare PCB’s which I’ll put on my Tindie store.
