Author : Parallax
"""Description:The Official Guide for the Multicore Propeller Microcontroller Collaborators include Shane Avery, Chip Gracey, Vern Graner, Martin Hebel,Joshua Hintze, Andre' LeMothe, Andy Lindsay, Jeff Martin and Hanno Sander Parallax Inc Reviewed by Dr. Joseph S. Maresca The advantages of this software are considerable. For instance, a propeller chip needs no operating system. The code development tools are free. The propeller chip offers shared and mutually exclusive resources. A central hub controls access to mutually exclusive resources. Parallax forum membership has reached to over 17,000 registered members. The book begins by showing users how to build a propeller application out of objects which are self-contained sets of code and data. A Propeller chip is available in 3 packages. The processors are cogs which are simple and uniform. The Propeller Main has RAM/ROM. An active cog is either executing instructions or in a rest state. The Propeller tool software is downloaded and installed first from [...] Propeller. The following information comes up when the user ""Googles"" the site above. The Propeller chip makes it easy to rapidly develop embedded applications. Its eight processors (cogs) can operate simultaneously, either independently or cooperatively, sharing common resources through a central hub. The developer has full control over how and when each cog is employed
