Need some basic stamp II help

Post by cheesegrass » Sat Aug 10, 2002 2:14 pm

Anyone have a link that explains how to construct a carrier board for a basic stamp II? I know I can buy one for $20.00....I just wanted to do it myself.<p>
Thanks

All you really need is the BSII pinout. I have THE BSII carrier board, and it really isn't anything more than a protoboard with the programming port on it. So to build a carrier board, connect;<p>pin 1 of BSII to pin 2 of serial port (TX)
pin 2 of BSII to pin 3 of serial port (RX)
pin 3 of BSII to pin 4 of serial port (ATN)
pin 4 of BSII to pin 5 of serial port (GND)
connect pin 6 of serial port to pin 7 of serial port if you would like the BSII software to automatically find the serial port address. <p>All this can be found on the Parallax website, here is a link to the technical documents

Thanks for the reply. I'll see if I can muddle though it :)
