Just unreal... even broadcast video... <shaking head>unreal...
So this is a Parallax custom designed ASIC and not a preprogrammed part?
Ok, I don't care when it's ready. Release it when you're done, just take my money now so I can be first in line.
Truly a work of art.
Does it require elaborate heat sinking?
and I have yet to more than scratch the surface of what my BS2p can do, and then you introduce this... this... Über chip...
I wonder if the guys working on the X-Station game-console will pick it up?
And launch it as the XS3...
(Either the 'X-Station 3' or 'Excess 3'... )
Lets just hope that none of the Cell-chip designers take offense at the Propeller-beanie...

Most definitely EXTRA COOL, I'll have to get one, or several, when it comes out!
Not to be anal & a wet blanket but 'broadcast video'? channel 2 to 4 I'm assuming.
What about big brother? FCC
I'm sure it's only a few feet but, I've already had my cable TV service disconnected and then reconnected, by my cable·TV service provider,·because, I was playing with some 433Mhz stuff (sparkfun TLP-434's), it was interfering with CATV channel 57 a few houses down the block. I ended up going with the 315 modules, no problems yet.
What frequency are you talking about when your referring to 'broadcast'?

The Propeller is custom silicon designed transistor-by-transistor by our company's founder.·

Before we all get too excited for our "hobby" projects:
Could someone offer the following as a "rough, don't hold me to this":
Will single unit (processor only) pricing be:
> $100.00 US
From memory the sx52 Con Carne chip (A 40 pin version of the sx52) was about $80 so does this mean that we are looking around 8 x $80 , $640 for this chip. Any one want to guess ?·
Either way I think it rocks I just hope I can afford it.

We're reading your inquiries and will answer those which we can reply to, but some will need to wait as we make more official documentation and product releases. Dates,·datasheets, specifications and prices will follow at some point.
Thank you for your interest.·We think you'll like the·new Propeller.
