Week #6: (2/24-28) BS2 I/O Signals

Post by rjagodowski »

We'll spend the first part of the class revisting the Basic Stamp Syntax and Reference Manual. The Basic Stamp Syntax and Reference Manual can be downloaded here or directly from the Parallax website.

We will then discuss the signals to be observed in this week's lab experiment Week #6: BS2 IO Signals, with review discussions on Duty Cycle, PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) with HIGH/LOW/PULSOUT/PAUSE, exponential waveform signals PULSIN/RCTIME and Sine wave Modelling FREQOUT. Some sample screenshots are posted below.

Lastly, I'll give a brief introduction to the StampWorks kit, the Professional Development Board and the experiments which need to be completed using that equipment. You can download the support information for StampWorks and the Professional Development Board here in the Welcome to Course topic.

Here's a bit on PWM from Sparkfun.

I will then give an introduction to the labs you will be performing for the next several weeks using the BS2 Professional Development Board and the StampWorks text. You can find further information in the Week #7 EET-260L Lab Topic.
