The fundamentals of electronics relating to microcontrollers is simply laid out by the great crew at Parallax, featuring their BASIC Stamp.

Description [Hide]

Written by Andy Lindsay for Parallax, this tidy 162-page, spiral-bound tutorial covers the essentials of 8-bit A/D and D/A conversion using a BASIC Stamp module, and a variety of additional hardware, including potentiometers, LEDs, speakers, photoresistors and buttons. This book is an ideal companion for the Parallax Board of Education full kit.

The text introduces PBASIC commands for A/D conversion with resistor / capacitor circuits, interfacing an ADC0831 8-bit A/D converter, scaling analog outputs into meaningful digital values, analyzing time-varying signals and using PWM as analog output.
