Part of what makes Propeller Semiconductor so unique is our customer focus combined with the capabilities of the powerful Propeller chip. Parallax Semiconductor promotes a customer centric environment where we consistently strive to partner with our customers and develop high quality solutions to meet their needs. In return this builds customer satisfaction and loyalty. Below are testimonials from a few of our customers.
“After using conventional MCUs, we began to grow tired of either not having the right type of IO available or not having enough raw horsepower to process the remote sensor data we were interested in analyzing. We were spending too much time trying to create a flexible embedded solution for prototyping a variety of ideas and not enough time on the product we were trying to bring to market. Thanks to the Propeller’s flexible pin assignment and huge library of pre-written software, we can easily add features to our product and quickly respond to changing requirements and new opportunities.”
“An absolute bonus for us was harnessing the full, 32-bit, 8-core potential that the Propeller brings to the table. Instead of wading through polling or interrupt issues, we went about our business of crafting a great overall system architecture with the Propeller at the heart of it all. With Parallax's package offerings and investment in the upcoming Propeller 2, we saw a clear path from prototype to shipments.”

"We chose the Parallax Propeller for two primary reasons. First, the ability to hand tasks off to devoted microprocessors using the inherent parallel processing architecture. Second, speed to market: drawing from the available community shared software and powerful low cost development tools. The Propeller IC has enabled us to jump over existing competitors and achieve sustainable growth in a few short months. It would not have been possible to meet our design requirements with any other processor on the market. A better solution for embedded control simply does not exist."

“I develop custom tools for IC suppliers in Silicon Valley. Recently I was called in by another design firm that had spent nearly a year trying to design and debug a clean room wafer handler using a conventional MCU. I came in and completely redesigned the machine using a pair of Propeller chips just three weeks. The Propeller chip is fast and predictable, and so are its tools. I know what to expect going into a design and that I can count on the Propeller to get the job done.”
