The Basic Stamp Microcontroller Module

At the core of each experiment is the Board of EducationĀ® carrier board along with the BASIC StampĀ® 2 microcontroller module (sold separately). The Board of Education carrier board has an ample solderless breadboard prototyping area for all the components that will be used in all five experiments.

To complete the experiments in this text, you will need to have your BASIC Stamp Editor v 2.0 or higher installed and running on your PC. Then, you will need to have your BASIC Stamp 2 module installed on your Board of Education carrier board and hooked up to your computer with a serial cable. You will need to supply power to this board with a fresh 9 volt battery or a 6-9 volt wall-mount power supply. If you need detailed directions, please see Chapter 1 of What's a Microcontroller? available on the Parallax CD, or free to view or download online a www.parallax.com. If you are using a public PC, remember to request authorization to the network administrator or your instructor before installing the software and connecting to your BASIC Stamp hardware.

A complete listing of the system, software, hardware and additional items required for all of the experiments can be found in Appendix D.
