Based on the authors popular monthly column in Nuts & Volts magazine, this is the first complete English-language guide to BASIC Stamp -- the easy-to-use, single-board computer that runs a PIC microcontroller. It walks hobbyists through 12 complete projects, from traffic light simulators to robot runabouts, that illustrate how to program Stamp applications on DOS or Windows PCs. True novices will find plenty of background material, such as how to read schematics and identify components.

Build smart electronics projects with the inexpensive, simple-to-use, surprisingly powerful basic stamp. 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. This guide 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. Written by the original author of the widely read "Stamp Applications" column for Nuts & Bolts magazine, Programming and Customizing the BASIC Stamp Computer offers you: a primer on basic electronics--including reading schematics, identifying components, and constructing prototypes; thorough yet accessible coverage of both BASIC Stamp I and II--from reading and understanding BASIC programs, to PBASIC toolboxes, to detailed applications; BASIC Stamp Quick Reference Guide; 12 complete projects that demonstrate various BASIC Stamp applications and allow you to put your new knowledge to work; an accompanying CD that provides all the software tools you need to begin developing PIC applications on your own. With the range of skills you'll develop using this guide, you'll see why it can be easier to build sophisticated projects with microcontrollers than with conventional electronic parts--and even more fun!About the Author:
