RF Remote Control For The BASIC Stamp. Figure 2: BS1-IC & TWS-434 Connections. Connect Pin# 7 (P0) of the BS1-IC to the data-input pin of the TWS-434 RF transmitter module. Pin# 4 of the TWS-434 is the antenna connection, and requires only a 13-inch piece of insulated hobby wire for an effective antenna. Basic Stamp 2 - Working with Basic Stamps and PICs.

Basic Stamp 2 - Working with Basic Stamps and PICs

Anderson, Georgetown County, SC, Mar, '98 Introduction. Many have asked me, "Should I get started with the Parallax Basic Stamps or with PICs". There is no simple single paragraph answer. This discussion deals with such items as the Parallax Basic Stamps 1 and 2, Versatech's TIC62, Micro Engineering Labs PIC Basic, Micromint's Pic Stic and other approaches to using the Microchip PIC in embedded processor control. Note that this is a noncommercial site. Clearly, if these sell well, I am pleased as there is a satisfaction in creating and seeing the fruits used by others. This is a good vantage point as it affords me the ability to honestly appraise products and publicly note "buy this" or "don't buy that".

Thus, in the following I have attempted to be up front and frank. Mozilla Firefox. Electronically Monitored EcoSystems. Hobby Engineering: Basic Stamp Modules and Starter Kits Section. StampWorks v2 It's easy to get started micro-controlling your world with StampWorks.

Hobby Engineering: Basic Stamp Modules and Starter Kits Section

The StampWorks manual includes 35 experiments based on the BASIC Stamp 2 microcontroller and the Professional Development Board (included). StampWorks gives you the hardware, the electrical components and, most importantly, the know-how to become a confident embedded programmer. Working your way through StampWorks you will learn about efficient embedded design, connecting circuits and "smart" sensors to the BASIC Stamp, adding computer control to your projects, and "Power PBASIC" programming techniques. After you've worked your way through StampWorks you'll be able to: flash LEDs, use 7-segment and LCD displays, monitor one or several push-buttons or switches, add sounds and sound effects to your projects, build a simple light-controlled Theremin, control servos and stepper motors, measure temperature, voltage, and so much more!

BASIC Stamp RS232 serial notes

Contents: (updated 11/13/2010) The baudmodes is a 16 bit value that shows up after the first comma in SERIN and SEROUT commands. The low 13 bits (bit 0 to bit 12) specify the baud rate itself, while bits 13, 14 and 15 are modifiers that turn on or off certain modes of the serial operation. The values shown in the following table in the left-most column are the common baud rates. Example pattern: $55 in binary is %01010101. ___-_-_-_-_-__---------_______________-_-_-_-_-__-_________,___ $55 $0 8 milliseconds $55 $FF etc.. time---> RS232 is an "inverted" logic, so logical "1" is represented as a low level, and a logical "0" is a high level.

A noninverted logic will flip all of these levels over, so that logical 1 is represented by a high level, and logical 0 by a low level. Unwanted resets can occur when there are noise sources like motors or radios near the Stamp. Use of flow control top SEROUT flow control <top> Basic Stamp 2 - Tutorial and Applications.

The Parallax BASIC Stamp micro-controller has generated enthusiasm in the electronics industry, where it has twice been nominated EDN Product of the Year. The family of BASIC Stamps is growing. It started with the BS2 original with the green mask seen at the right in the bottom row in the middle. Each new addition to the family adds new features and capabilities for either speed or low power operations. Forums. Basic Stamp® - Index. Home. Basic Stamp FAQ. Tracy Allen's BASIC Stamp Links.

Parallax, Inc. Parallax is the manufacturer of the BASIC Stamp. Their site includes all the manuals for free download as well as many application notes, schematics and FAQs. Many of the documents can be found in the downloads web page. The application notes for the original BASIC Stamp I are still very useful for ideas, so don't pass them up. Parallax lists Parallax maintains an very active email listserver. Parallax BASIC Stamps in Class Parallax is developing a curriculum and hardware package for use in schools. Scott Edwards Electronics Scott wrote many articles for publication in Nuts and Volts magazine, on how to use the BASIC Stamp. Al Williams Electronics Al puts up a Stamp Project of the Month, which includes material from his many published articles and books. Peter Anderson. BasicX by NetMedia Inc. Basic Stamp Projects. Parallax Home. BASIC Stamp. Diagram of a BASIC Stamp 2 Technical specifications[edit] Although the BASIC Stamp has the form of a DIP chip, it is in fact a small printed circuit board (PCB) that contains the essential elements of a microprocessor system: A Microcontroller containing the CPU, a built in ROM containing the BASIC interpreter, and various peripheralsMemory (an i²C EEPROM)A clock, usually in the form of a ceramic resonatorA power supplyExternal input and output The end result is that a hobbyist can connect a 9 V battery to a BASIC Stamp and have a complete system.


A connection to a personal computer allows the programmer to download software to the BASIC Stamp, which is stored in the onboard non-volatile memory device: it remains programmed until it is erased or reprogrammed, even when the power is removed. Programming[edit] The BASIC Stamp is programmed in a variant of the BASIC language, called PBASIC. Once the program has been written, it is tokenized and sent to the chip through a serial cable.
