Parallax Propeller P8X32A 40-pin DIP

The Parallax Propeller is a unique multicore, multi-processing microcontroller with shared memory and a built-in interpreter for programming in a high-level object-oriented language, called Spin.  Its eight symmetric 32-bit processor cores (also called "cogs") are united by shared memory, managed by a central "hub," and have common access to all 32 I/O pins.

The Propeller is a good choice over other microcontrollers when a low system part count is desirable due to its ability to provide direct video output and an easy interface to external peripherals such as keyboard, mouse and VGA monitor. Pre-written objects to support many types of hardware also make it an attractive option

The P8X32A-D40 is most useful for prototyping in its 40-pin DIP package.
