What's a Microcontroller? textbook and Parts Kit US$49.99

What\'s a Microcontroller? textbook and Parts Kit

This kit does not include a development board. To go through the activities in the textbook, you already should have a BASIC Stamp HomeWork Board or a BASIC Stamp Board of Education plus BS2-IC module. If you don't, then you should purchase one of these bundles which contain this Parts & Text kit: The BASIC Stamp Activity Kit includes a HomeWork Board; the BASIC Stamp Discovery Kit includes a Board of Education plus BS2-IC module.

The What's a Microcontroller Parts & Text kit is the perfect way to get started building circuits and writing programs with your BASIC Stamp 2 development board.

If you do already have a BASIC Stamp 2 board and want to learn to make your own BASIC Stamp inventions, you can learn how common components work as you go step by step through 40 hands-on activities in the 350-page What's a Microcontroller? text. Side-by-side schematics and wiring diagrams give you confidence in building the circuits with the Parts Kit components on a BASIC Stamp 2 development board (not included), and each example program is followed by a detailed explanation so you learn as you go. Here is what you will learn to do:

  • Build simple circuits with schematics and wiring diagrams
  • Write programs in PBASIC to control the circuits
  • Send signals by blinking LEDs
  • Sense contact with pushbuttons
  • Read a dial using a potentiometer
  • Measure light with a phototransistor
  • Control motion with a servo motor
  • Play tunes on a piezo speaker
  • Display data on a 7-segment LED
  • Combine several circuits to prototype an invention
