Programming and Customizing the Basic Stampby Scott Edwards
Synopses & Reviews
CLASSIC GUIDE TO CUSTOMIZING BASIC STAMP FOR HOBBYISTS AND DESIGNERS
If you want to take advantage of the popular PIC Microcontroller for your electronics projects, but are intimidated by the programming involved, your worries are over. Programming and Customizing the Basic Stamp, Second Edition gives you a comprehensive tutorial on the easy-to-use BASIC Stamp single-board computer, which runs a PIC Microcontroller, and doesn't require you to do any assembly language programming.
This new edition moves you briskly from electronic foundations through BASIC Stamp "Boot Camps" and an intelligent traffic signal simulation to build a robotic bug with whisker sensors, a time/temperature display, and a data-logging thermometer.
Written by Scott Edwards, the original author of the widely read "Stamp Applications" column for Nuts & Volts magazine, this easy-to-follow reference includes a CD that gives you all the IBM- compatible software tools necessary to begin developing Stamp applications.
