IT is working now

Zyn PS Block is only supplying clock into FPGA not used otherwise, all the work is done by the Propeller Soft Core implemented in FPGA Fabric.

Prop P31, P30 are connected to FTDI USB UART, P0..P15 to Arduino D0..D15

binaries on github, but need to FLASH them, they would not work if loaded from SD Card.


  1. get the BOOT.BIN from github
  2. Write to flash, reset or replug usb
  3. start Parallax Propeller tool
  4. Press F7

Should identify Propeller version 1
