Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
This is a great book for learning how to use the new and powerful BASIC STAMP 2 (BS2) microprocessor with its amazing capability for building complex projects more quickly and less expensively than anything before. You can pick up some sophisticated communications concepts and techniques while building 20-plus projects that range from very simple to complex. And they're all fun! What could be better than a Morse Code keyer or a lightning monitoring system?

Thomas Petruzzellis presents a few introductory chapters designed to bring the reader up to speed and then proceeds to showcase more than 20 projects for building basic serial communication to a 12-channel Internet-based alarm reporting system, including schematics. For example, many of the projects in this book are complete and self-contained in their own right, but they also could be used together with other projects to form more complex projects and systems. Some projects could be used as idea generators for more complex systems. The accompanying CD-ROM includes the appendixes and all of the programs for the projects.

Hobbyists, engineers, technicians, and amateur radio enthusiasts alike will appreciate this fascinating and outstanding guide! John Vacca
