The Board of Education Full Kit (USB) has everything you need to learn about BASIC Stamp programming.

Description [Hide]

The Parallax #28803 Board of Education Full Kit is a compete package of all the hardware you need to begin experimenting with the BASIC Stamp microcontroller. Everything you need is included except for the power supply and components and parts to build projects. If you have a workshop full of LEDs, resistors, capacitors, sensors and more then this is the right kit for you. If you are a little short on the components, then one of the Stamps In Class Parts Kits would be a great way to go.

If you are a beginner, we recommend that you download the What's a Microcontroller? tutorial (see the Resources Section).

BOE Introduction

It's called the Board of Education Full Kit since the BOE board is the main feature and houses the BASIC Stamp 2 module (included.) The BOE carrier board the most popular Stamp development board since it is capable of being used in such a wide variety of applications. Originally, designed for education, this board is now in wide spread use by all BASIC Stamp users. The convenient hook-ups, 3-position power switch, and the overall solid workmanship make it a very reliable platform for any 24-pin BASIC Stamp or Javelin Stamp application.

BOE Full Kit (USB) Contains:

Board of Education -USB Version (Fully Assembled)

  • BASIC Stamp 2 module
  • 10 pluggable jumper wires
  • Mini-USB cable

Key Features:

  • Mechanically interlocked power supply to prevent dual connection of wall-pack and 9-volt battery
  • USB connector for BS2-IC programming and serial communication during run-time
  • P0 - P15 I/O pins
  • Vdd and Vss connections brought adjacent to 5.1 x 3.5 cm (2" x 1 3/8") breadboard area
  • Includes set of ten (10) color-coded 22 gauge wires
  • Female 10-pin dual row connector for optional AppMods (more breadboard space)
  • Traces on top of the board show connections between BS2-IC and breadboard connections

    Please Note that the Board of Education Full Kit (USB) doesn’t include a Power Supply
