The BASIC Stamp 2e serves as the brains inside of electronics projects and applications that require a programmable microcontroller. It is able to control and monitor timers, keypads, motors, sensors, switches, relays, lights, and more. Programming is performed in an easy-to-learn language called PBASIC.
All vital components (processor, clock source, memory, power regulator) are provided on the tiny PCB of the BS2e-IC; just connect power and go. Projects needing small, permanent soldering area for circuitry may benefit from combining the BS2e-IC with the BASIC Stamp 2 Carrier Board or the Super Carrier Board.
The BS2e-IC is useful for those who have previous experience with the BS2 and would like more program space or the use of Scratch Pad RAM.

BASIC Stamp Overview A BASIC Stamp microcontroller is a single-board computer that runs the PBASIC language interpreter in its firmware. Your code is stored in an EEPROM, which can also be used for data storage. The PBASIC language has easy-to-use commands for basic I/O, like turning devices on or off, interfacing with sensors, etc. More advanced commands let BASIC Stamp modules interface with other integrated circuits, communicate with each other, and operate in networks.
