First, my thanks to @jmg
for the suggestion of using the N76E003 MCU
for a keypad controller.
This lead me to research the possibility which lead me to this video
From there I found this page
on the updated process in detail.
I love this concept and I was wondering if a paradigm like this exists for propeller?
Comments please, links, anything
I'll do the reading.
Ideally it would be nice to stick to all parallax products, but the cheapest version of the stamp that I could find is just too expensive compared to the N76E003 MCU
If this does not exist I will make the best first version of it that I'm capable of.
I propose that it is designed to work with SimpleIDE (C only) and that the two target technologies include the basic stamp, the SX28AC
, the N76E003 MCU, and one more MCU in the 50 to 75 cent range that is faster than the N76E003 MCU. A simple programmer board compatible with all of the above should not be that complex, at least I don't think.
With this we could program 5 MCU with the same C code and libraries.
I believe a program like this might being some new interest in the propeller as it will allow for a C standard for designing and integrating peripherals yet unknown.
What do you all think?
Anyone interested in the final product, or in helping?

I'd really value your opinions on this.
