This Project board has a surface-mount BS1, power jack, DB-9 serial connection and voltage regulator. AND it comes with a breadboard, and a selection of jumper wires.
The Basic Stamp 1 microcontroller is the grand-daddy of all the easy-to-use microcontrollers on the market, so it's been around for a long time, and is very well proven. It's ideal for simple, single applications, but it's pretty darn tiny. Leave it to Parallax to resurrect it in a really convenient package, that's a great value!
This development board is only 3-1/4" x 2-1/2" (8.3 x 6.4 cm) in size, but includes:
That's just the board. It also comes with a small solderless-breadboard that sticks right on, and 10 jumper wires for your first experiments! Parallax also pre-wired 220 ohm resistors in series with all the I/O to make it goof-proof!
THIS is really a great value, especially if you have a simple application, or are just wanting to "get your feet wet" with microcontrollers.
Additionally, the PCB layout of prototype area will interface with other option kits:
Please note: The BS1 Project Board does not include a programming cable or power supply.
