    Default Index Test

    Rich's Parallax and Savage Circuits Search

    I don't like relying on my "Favorites" to find threads here on the forum.

    I'm making an index of threads, I frequently link to or use, here.

    Thanks to Humanoido for the idea of using a Test Forum post as an index.

    This first post with be an index to the index.

    (Updated: 6/4/14) Ten Nordic Modules for $10.08 on ebay
    (6/4/14) I try to keep the link above set to an active seller. These sellers frequently change what they are selling and the above link will likely be out of date soon. A quick search on ebay for "nRF24L01+" will bring up the active pages selling these transceivers. There is likely a better price for these somewhere on ebay. I didn't look very long for the best deal.
    I have not purchased transceiver from the seller I linked to above. I have on occasion received a transceiver that didn't work. If you're going to buy some of these, I'd suggest getting at least three modules in case one of the module is DOA.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I learn to program the Propeller chip?

    Propeller Education Kit (Also in "Help" menu of Propeller Tool)
    This is probably the best place to start. Mostly Spin.

    Propeller Resource Index (This is a stickie in the Propeller Forum.)
    A lot of the the links in above index are also listed here.

    This is another good place to start learning about programming the Propeller in Spin. These tutorials use the Propeller Board of Education.

    Propeller Manual v1.0 (older version)
    The older version of the manual include a section on learning to use Spin. This is the way I learned Spin.

    Propeller AppNotes Lots of great information. Make sure and take a look a them. Spin and PASM.

    (6/17/14) AN019 Measuring Stack Space for Parallel Processes

    The Spin Zone: Adventures in Propeller Programming
    Nuts & Volts articles by Jon Williams (JonnyMac) I finally figured out how to program with PASM from these.
    (These also include lots of good information about programming in Spin.)

    Programming and Customizing the Muticore Propeller Microcontroller
    Not really an absolute beginner's book, but lots of good stuff. (Mostly Spin IIRC.)

    (10/30/14) Jeff Ledger's Propeller Cookbook (Spin)

    deSilva's Tutorial
    This a good one for learning PASM. Potatohead's tutorial is also here.

    Graham Stabler's Tutorials PASM
    I personally haven't read these but they are recommended by others and Graham is a smart guy so they should be good.

    The Hydra Book (Direct link to pdf (warning large file).)
    This is a great book. It has lot of information about the Propeller video capabilities.

    Propeller Wiki
    Both Spin and PASM information.

    Propeller Downloads
    Both Spin and PASM information.

    (1/12/14) PASM 101 - Manipulation Input and Output Pins
    Tutorial by MJHanagan (A very useful guide dealing with controlling pin states with PASM.)

    How do I use a SD card with the Propeller?
    (3/26/14) Simple example of using uSD card with PropBOE

    How can I tell if my EEPROM is 32K or 64K?

    Use the program attached to post #24 in this thread.
    More explaination.

    (8/25/13) What EEPROM chips will work with the Propeller (booting from EEPROM)?

    The datasheet for EEPROM chips apply to both surface mount parts and DIP packages.
    32K EEPROM (link to datasheet)
    64K EEPROM (link to datasheet)
    128K EEPROM (no link yet)
    Apparently there are several different 128K EEPROM chips which may be used with the Propeller. The upper 64K of the 128K EEPROM chips are accessed differently depending on the specific chip's protocol. Mike Green discusses this a bit in this post.

    (1/9/14) Is there an ANDN equivalent in Spin?

    How can I interface the Prop with a file on my computer?

    Use Phil's program to read a write to Windows cvs files.
    Also see AppNote #AN018.

    How do I learn to build a robot?

    Robotics with the Boe-Bot (Link to the book is near the bottom of the page, under "Downloads & Resources")
    I like this book but I'm not a fan of Basic Stamps (Propeller are so much better).
    The book still teach a lot about electronics which may be applied to a robot controlled by a Propeller chip.
    If you need help converting any of the lessons to use with a Propeller, just ask on the Propeller Forum.
    I understand Parallax is working on a Prop-Bot. I look forward to it.

    The Robot Forum is also a good place to learn about robots.

    This is a good idea. I've had an index here for some time. If everyone made indices, we would have a powerful resource. Keep at it.

    Have you to thank for the idea of using a test forum post as an index. (I just added a line to my first post about this.)

    I considered use the blog area as an index but I like the way forum posts display better than the way blog posts display.

    You also have to add some code to get links to show up in blogs.

    I have a bunch of projects I haven't documented yet. Hopefully I'll have more to add to my personal project index soon.

    I know that list is woefully incomplete.

    I'm hoping if I made an "erco deals I resisted" list, it would be longer than the "buy" list, but I'm not so sure it would be.

    Thanks Whit.

    I'm not as altruistic as this index may at first make me appear. I mainly made this index for my own use. I myself wanting to link to certain threads in my forum replies and I got tired of searching for these same threads over and over again. Most of the items in this index are things I'm very interested in myself. This index doesn't have much (if any) information I'm not personally interested in.

    I also wanted a place to list my various projects.

    Another forum member has made a similar sort of index. I thought I had a link to it somewhere in this thread but I couldn't find just now. This other index has a lot of great information. I'll try to find it again and made sure to add a link to it in post #1 of this index (I thought I had already done this).

    As I've mentioned elsewhere in this thread/index, I got the idea of listing my projects in a test forum thread from Humanoido. I like many of Humanoido's threads listing threads on various topics (serial drivers, Propeller programming languages, multi-Propeller projects, etc.) and wanted to start some of my own lists on topics I'm interested in.

    I hope you do not mind but I am going to also "borrow" this idea. It will be a great place for me to keep track of threads and links I use and like instead of having to search my favorites.

    I don't mind at all. I got the idea from Humanoido.

    I wish other forum members kept a list of their projects and forum threads they think are important or interesting. I think it would be fun to see what others have done and what they find interesting.

    I use Rich's search page (linked to at the top of post #1) a lot but there are lots of threads which are hard to find through Google or the forum search page. I've found this list of links has been extremely useful.
