The What's a Microcontroller Parts & Text Kit guides you through over 40 hands-on activities designed to provide you with the best possible introduction to the world of BASIC Stamp programming. The text contains clear explanations, defines electronics terms in a friendly manner, and most importantly builds your confidence so you can start building your own electronics inventions. You may use your Board of Education with the other Parts and Text Kits in our education series.
The BS2-IC is widely used in educational, hobby, and industrial applications and is strongly recommended for first-time BASIC Stamp users because of plentiful resources (documentation, source code, and customer projects) that are available online and in print. Our Stamps in Class Educational Program was designed with this module, making it a great place to learn about microcontrollers. Once you have become familiar with programming in PBASIC and have designed your own projects, you may want to explore our selection of BASIC Stamps with increased power, speed, or memory.
