The What's a Microcontroller? Parts Kit provides all the electronic components needed to complete the activities in the What's a Microcontroller? text on a BASIC Stamp 2 development board.
If you want to learn to make your own BASIC Stamp inventions, learn how these common components work as you go step-by-step through 40 hands-on activities in the 350-page What's a Microcontroller? Text (available for purchase or as a free download). 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, and each example program is followed by a detailed explanation so you learn as you go. Here's 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
