The BASIC Stamp 1 Serial Adapter provides serial port based programming capability from a PC running Windows to a BASIC Stamp 1 via the 3-pin header provided on the BASIC Stamp 1 Carrier Board.
The BASIC Stamp 1 microcontroller has been around since the early 1990s and was designed to be programmed from a parallel port on a DOS-based PC. Since then, PC technology has evolved greatly, so this adapter was designed so that you can program the BASIC Stamp 1 via a PC's serial port using the Windows-based BASIC Stamp Editor. One end plugs into a serial cable and the other onto a 3-pin header provided on BASIC Stamp 1 development boards.
Of course, technology marches on, and now many PCs don't have an RS232 serial port either. However, this adapter is compatible with USB-RS232 converters such as UC232R-10-CHiPi (10cm cable), UT232R-200 (2m cable), or 28030 (provide your own cable).
