while multi core sounds cool, how much of a single processor do you use?
Granted this would be nice for integrated AI and sening/actuating and you could
compartmentalize fairly well but I don't see the huge advantage over an embedded operating system
if done correctly. And there is still the issue of two cores tyring to use the same pin.
not that the situation is any better in a single core architecture.
If you are doing robotics as a hobby and the robot is the end goal, yea this could work for you.
If you are doing robotics with a focus on learning instead of producing...I don't see this chip
looking good on a resume. ARM and AVR is where the industry is heading...
And I really don't like anything so Proprietary as
the Propeller chip is programmed in both a high-level language, called Spin™,and low-level (assembly) language.
Proprietary == gimick in my mind....but maybe that's just me. I prefer straight C coding because assembly is a pain in the but and C is an ISO standard. And almost any thing you can do in assembly can be done in C. any ways....i'm sleepy.....
