Basic Stamp 2sx tutorial
« on: December 22, 2009, 07:52:21 PM »
Well first off before i get a 100 messages saying how much basic stamps suck to save you the time i know that ;)
ok here my question: theirs a really good tutorial on here (http://www.societyofrobots.com/member_tutorials/node/26) about how to build a parallax BS2sx microcontroller (normally $60.00) for $30.00 (or less now because some of the stuff cost less now) and it really seems like a good idea .. but the tutorial dates back to 2007 and the user has not logged on sense then and hence making the tutorial not outdated but full of dead links. the first problem i have is that the website he listed to buy the basic parts doesn't look reliable (www.jamco.com)....it just seems fishy. also as noted above the schematic link is dead and im not the best at electronics so i cant tell by the picture what goes where . my last problem is that the EEPROM name in the part list is different from the link he gave us.

              Thanks to all in advance

First of all, that site is dead. Second, why do you want to build it exactly as a basic stamp is, why not customize it?

that explains it and what do you mean by customise it ??? If your wondering why im building it its because

. Fun
. Challenge
. i have only used basic stamps....... :D........Swicthin over to ardouino and C soon though 8)
. a cheaper option then buy n 60$ of premade unfun
. Fun

Hmm, if you are planning to switch to avr, why not take a look at the $50 robot board.
It only costs ~$15 to make and is more useful than the stamp.

The main chip in the arduino is an avr.
But if you are set on making a stamp, thats that.
What do you need help with?

Well first i know i could probably get the parts some where else but the 16K Bytes EEPROM and the link do not match up.... i think well http://www.parallax.com/StoreSearchResults/tabid/768/txtSearch/602-00013/List/0/SortField/4/ProductID/25/Default.aspx thats the title but in the parts list it only says 16k bytes EEPROM
another thing is schematics..... not the best with electronics

That is the right chip, the tutorial must have an error.

The novelty of making your own on a breadboard will wear out once you realize how horrible a microcontroller system on a breadboard is  ;)

There must be pins he plugs the programmer into.
Razor is right, breadboarded circuits are terrible. Once you've made it and tested it, move it to a proto board.
