Overview

The What's a Microcontroller Parts & Text kit is the perfect way to get started building circuits and writing programs with your BASIC Stamp 2 development board.

If you want to learn to make your own BASIC Stamp inventions, you can learn how common components work as you go step-by-step through 40 hands-on activities in the 350-page What’s a Microcontroller? text. Side-by-side schematics and wiring diagrams give you confidence in building the circuits with the Parts Kit components on a BASIC Stamp 2 development board, and each example program is followed by a detailed explanation so you learn as you go. Here's what you will learn to do:

Key Features:

  • Build simple circuits with schematics and wiring diagrams
  • Write programs in PBASIC to control the circuits
  • Send signals by blinking LEDs
  • Sense contact with pushbuttons
  • Read a dial using a potentiometer
  • Measure light with a phototransistor
  • Control motion with a servo motor
  • Play tunes on a piezo speaker
  • Display data on a 7-segment LED
  • Combine several circuits to prototype an invention 

 

Details

  • Input components: pushbuttons, single-turn potentiometer, phototransistor
  • Output: LEDs, 7-segment display, servo, piezo speaker
  • Passive components: resistors, capacitors, jumper wires
  • Integrated circuits: digital potentiometer, transistor
