Book Description

The What's a Microcontroller? text answers the question "What's a Microcontroller?" by showing students how they can design their own customized, intelligent inventions using the BASIC Stamp® module.

The activities in this text incorporate a variety of fun and engaging experiments that appeal to the student's imagination using motion, light, sound, and tactile feedback to introduce new concepts. These activities are designed to introduce the student to many basic principles in the fields of computer programming, electricity and electronics, mathematics and physics. Many of the activities facilitate a hands-on presentation of design practices used by engineers and technicians in the creation of modern machines and appliances using inexpensive and easy to obtain parts.

This book is a first-step BASIC Stamp 2 tutorial, introducing the essentials electronics and programming side by side. You will write PBASIC programs and build both simple and advanced breadboard circuits with LEDs, pushbuttons, potentiometers, light sensor, a servo, and much more.

This text is designed to accommodate a wide range of ages and skill levels.
