Parallax's SX48 Proto Board provides a low-cost, high quality, solution for using the surface mount SX48 easily. Way better than duct tape.

Description [Hide]

Notice: Parallax announces the End-of-Life for the SX series of Microcontroller. We will be halting production of this item when our inventories deplete. Sorry!

SX Line Production End of Life (EOL)
The Parallax SX microcontroller line has reached production EOL. The owner of the SX design ( has given Parallax final notice that we are to place a lifetime buy of wafers. We recognize this announcement will be difficult for customers who have designed the SX into their products. We share your disappointment.

Need a way to play with the Parallax SX48? The SX48 is a nice, tidy solution to using the surface mount SX48 easily. It offers a heckovalot more speed than the BS2SX, but it requires a bit more effort to use. The SX series of microcontrollers are the world's fastest series of 8-bit microcontrollers!

It Features:

  • Surface-mount SX48
  • LM2940 voltage regulator - input power supply of 6-9 VDC provides up to 1 Amp
  • SX-Key programming port with TTL oscillator mechanical interlock prevents both from being used at the same (which damages the SX-Key and TTL oscillator)
  • Three-position power switch (off, logic power, power to logic and servo ports)
  • Clock configurations supported with additional components sold by Parallax: TTL oscillator (DIP-8 package); ceramic resonator (SIP3 package); Crystal (HC/49 package)
  • Smart prototype holes for servo headers, DIP and SOIC8 components

Note: This product requires the SX-Key Programming Tool

As it uses a regular solder-on perfboard for prototyping, you might want to attach a small breadboard to the prototyping surface for less-than-permanent experiments!
