Basic Analog and Digital Textbook and Parts Kit for BASIC Stamp US$49.99

Basic Analog and Digital Textbook and Parts Kit for BASIC Stamp

Understanding binary, decimal, and simple analog electronics with a BASIC Stamp module and a few sensors.

Analog-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analog (D/A) conversion make it possible for a digital device, like the BASIC Stamp 2, to measure and control "real-world" values such as voltage, light level, and frequency. The experiments in the Basic Analog and Digital textbook introduce PBASIC commands for A/D conversion with resistor/capacitor circuits, interfacing an ADC0831 8-bit A/D converter, scaling analog outputs into meaningful digital values, analyzing time-varying signals, and using PWM as analog output. These concepts are conveyed using potentiometers, LEDs, speakers, photoresistors, and pushbuttons. This Stamps in Class text is an excellent companion or sequel to What's a Microcontroller?

This kit does not include a development board. To go through the activities in the textbook, you will need a BASIC Stamp Board of Education Full Kit or HomeWork Board Activity Kit.
