Microcontroller Projects Using the Basic Stamp, 2nd ed. US$56.95

9781578201013
Microcontroller Projects Using the Basic Stamp, 2nd ed.

Microcontroller Projects Using the Basic Stamp, second edition, has been updated with information relevant to the newest Basic Stamp, the BS2P, and revised to present more advanced projects. The result is a superb hands-on teaching text with dozens of completely new projects in addition to enhanced projects that take advantage of the latest features of the BS2P.

Each chapter introduces a new concept through a simple project and then, through several enhancements, shows how to build better and better solutions. Each chapter provides exercises to confirm your understanding of key topics. You will learn how to use the Stamp's:

  • I/O commands to monitor and control digital signals to build smallgame projects, a cable tester, and a logic probe
  • Analog output capabilities to create a digitally-controlled power supply
  • Analog input capabilities to build a capacitance meter and a recording voltmeter
  • Built-in serial commands to assemble a data logger that uses EEPROM to store data and a frequency counter
  • I/O interface capability to build the classic pong game for a Stamp with a limited graphics display
  • Robotic capabilities to drive DC motors, stepper motors, and servo motors

Readers also get complete and detailed instructions for building their own:

  • Test instruments
  • Robot motor controls
  • Morse code keyers
  • Infrared remote controls
  • Internet to Stamp gateways

Throughout the book, the author explains and teaches -- always with the same clarity and thoroughness that has made him a favorite both on the Web and in enthusiast and professional magazines.

Softcover, 456 pages, CD-ROM included
