Overview

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
pplications 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!

Designed for hobbyists and "midnight engineers," this primer and tutorial guides you through the construction of the easy-to-use BASIC Stamp single-board computer. The computer runs a PIC microcontroller and no assembly language programming is required. This text is also a very good tutorial for learning firmware or embedded system concepts. To gain the most benefit, you should be somewhat familiar with electronic circuits, concepts and components. By the way, these computers are called Stamp computers because they are approximately the size of a postage stamp.
