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.
