Product Description

Build your own BASIC Stamp 1 with this surface mount (SSOP) interpreter chip and other standard parts.  All the control and ease of programming that you have grown to appreciate in the BASIC Stamp 1 module (#BS1-IC) is available with this chip and a few other components. Recommended for high volume applications or those with limited PCB real estate, the BASIC Stamp 1 interpreter chip can be used on your own PCB as an OEM solution.

The three main components needed to build your own BASIC Stamp 1 are: 1) this PBASIC Interpreter Chip, 2) an EEPROM, 3) and a resonator; see Related Products.

We also offer the interpreter in a through-hole package (#PBASIC1/P).

Key Features:

  • Small footprint for OEM PCB design
  • Completed circuit is programmed in PBASIC 1.0, an easy to learn language based on BASIC
  • Interpreter chip is preprogrammed with the BASIC Stamp 1 Interpreter firmware

Note: The 20-pin SSOP package of this chip has a different pinout than the 18-pin DIP package; pay close attention to the package shown in schematics and refer to Microchip datasheet for PIC16C56A for pinout information.
