Interfacing a Palm III w/ BS2

Post by Tommy volts » Mon May 24, 2004 10:37 am

Dave Johnson's book "The Ultimate Palm Robot" shows in detail how to interface the Palm III with the Pontech SV203. The Palm is loaded with HotpawBasic and linked to the controller with a serial cable.<p>However, is there a way to interface a Palm III with a Basic Stamp? I am guessing I would need some kind of PBasic or TinyBasic version for the Palm III?

The forum is conspicuously silent. :) <p>Comments anyone? There must be an article on this subject somewhere.

Serial is serial, just at BS end convert RS-232 to 0 - 5V.<p>You program the BS to recognize commands/data from it's serial port, and to send status/data back.<p>On the Palm III you write a program in HotpawBasic to send the commands and receive replies. (As long as HotpawBasic has comm commands.)

Thanks Dale,<p>I'll try that instead of buying the Pontech microcontroller.
