D.6) SPIN

Spin is the programming language for the Parallax Propeller - an excellent microcontroller based around eight cores that operate (effectively) simultaneously. Apart from the ability to set different 'cogs' running independent tasks and being completely interrupt-free, the Propeller is highly flexible in the way it can be configured.

  • Want several serial ports operating simultaneously? Easy.
  • Want native TV/VGA support? Easy
  • Want to reserve a single cog to dedicated monitoring of a specific sensor? Easy.
The key to Spin is indentation of the text: this means 'End If', 'Next' and other statements are redundant.
