IMPORTANT PRODUCT NOTE: Parallax announced the EOL process for the SX28AC/SS-G microcontrollers in 2009. At that time we offered our customers a LifeTime Buy (LTB) for production purposes. Parallax held inventory reserves to guarantee our customers a multi-year supply of the SX-based BASIC Stamp products. Today - seven years later - is the final EOL announcement for products made with the SX28AC/SS-G. Please see the BS2 substitution guide for recommended substitutes.
The OEM BASIC Stamp® 2SX module (kit form) is a through-hole version of the popular BASIC Stamp 2SX module. Once assembled, this product is NOT eligible for returning to Parallax.
The kit includes all the components needed to build a fully-functional BASIC Stamp 2sx microcontroller in a SIP format. It can be programmed using the standard BASIC Stamp Editor just like the BS2sx-IC module.
Assembled form factor is a 20-pin SIP (0.1" spacing).
PC board includes labeled component locations with visible traces between parts.
PBASIC interpreter and EEPROM chips are socketed to allow easy replacement.
16 Kbyte EEPROM
50 MHz resonator
DB-9 serial connector
5-volt regulator, resistors, transistors, sockets and SIP pins
Dimensions: 2.0L x 2.0W x 0.55H in (51L x 51W x 14H mm)
Operating temp range: +32 to +158°F (0 to +70°C)
Note: Please note that low-power mode is only available when the regulator is removed and the BASIC Stamp 2sx OEM module is powered via the vdd pin. The Parallax warranty is voided if the OEM kit is not assembled and soldered as per the printed instructions included in the kit. Contact Technical Support if you have any questions relating to the assembly of this product.
