The original BASIC Stamp 2 Module is still a practical and versatile microcontroller for all kinds of embedded projects.
The BASIC Stamp 2 is a 24-pin DIP (Dual Inline Package) module. Most commonly referred to as a microcontroller, on occasion you may see it being called a single board computer since it has its very own processor, memory, clock, and interface (via 16 I/O pins). The BASIC Stamp 2 essentially serves as the brains inside of electronics projects and applications that require a programmable microcontroller. It is able to control and monitor switches, timers, motors, sensors, relays, valves, and more. Best yet, programming may be performed in the PBASIC language. Very similar to BASIC, this language has a quick learning curve and no compiler is required.
The BASIC Stamp 2 is the single most popular BASIC Stamp module that we manufacture. Widely used in educational, hobby, and industrial applications. This module normally has no shortage of program space or I/O pins. Serial PC interface provides enhanced debug features. Technical specifications are listed below or view the comparison .pdf in the downloads section.
The BASIC Stamp 2 is recommended for first-time BASIC Stamp module users because of the many resources, documentation, source code, and customer projects that are available online and in print. Our Stamps in Class Educational Program was designed with this module, making it a great place to learn about microcontrollers. Once you have become familiar with programming in PBASIC and have designed your own projects, you may want to explore our selection of BASIC Stamps with increased power, speed, or memory.
