Product Description

It’s amazing what you can accomplish with this proven microcontroller and its simple PBASIC 1 language.  All vital components (processor, clock source, memory, power regulator) are provided on the BS1’s tiny PCB; just connect power and go!  The BASIC Stamp® 1 (BS1-IC) is an ideal fit for applications that don’t require the extra speed, I/O, and memory of the BASIC Stamp 2 series of microcontrollers.

Projects needing prototyping areas for circuitry may benefit from the BASIC Stamp 1 Project Board or Super Carrier Board.  For lower-cost OEM solutions, the processor (PBASIC1 interpreter) and other components are available for integration into your PCB.

For customers that require a more powerful microcontroller, we highly recommend the BASIC Stamp 2 series controllers.  If true multi-processing is what is needed for your project or applications, then the Propeller microcontroller is the best option.

Does the current BASIC Stamp Editor Software for Windows support the Basic Stamp 1?
