PIC Microcontrollers. This link takes you to the MicroChip web site. Documentation, and software can be found here.
The device that makes the BASIC STAMP work is the PIC Microcontroller. The Stamp manufacturer, Parallax has programmed into their PIC, a Basic Interpreter so the Stamp can be programmed in BASIC.
Microengineering Labs has a programing language/compiler called Pic Basic Pro Compiler.This program allows you to write a program for a PIC in a BASIC language and compile to native PIC code.
You will need a PIC Programmer to load the native code into the PIC such as the PICstart Plus. I purchased the PICstart Plus from Digikey . (Part Number DV003001-ND)
LCD DISPLAYS This
link takes you to the Scott Edwards Electronics web site. They make
a serial back pack for the 2x16 or 4x16 LCD display that makes it
easy to add a LCD to any Stamp or PIC project. The Display only
requires +5Vdc, ground and one I/O from the Stamp or PIC after the
BackPack is added to the display.
FCC Identification Count down timer with LCD Display.
This project is a 5 minute timer with an audible alarm. This is used for giving your FCC required identification during nets or rag chews.
PIC Based Auto Fox
This is the basicly same project as the BSII Auto Fox, but it uses a $7.00 PIC rather than a $49.00 stamp.
