Basic Stamp Hardware Bible For Your Next Project
on May 13, 2002
The author has a good approach in revealing some of the pitfalls with using the Basic Stamp.Advanced users will certainly find some of Al's solutions very heplful, as he explains in detail floating point expressions, and working with negative numbers.
Inside the book is good code on interfacing with a serial LCD, as with others I read, Al has taken some of the mystery out of it, and really puts them to practice in his projects.If your novice to electronics, then this book is for you. Al explains how to interface keypads, switches, LEDS with no experience at all, and certainly makes it look easy.I was impressed by how he expained the circuit diagrams, and other key points on interfacing.
Al has also included his own programmer in the book, and I haven't even started to list his ideas for your next project.
I'm only giving it a four, because the CD was unreadable, and the publisher was kind of enough to send me another one.
