INTRO TO MICROCONTROLLERS
Introduces the microcontroller, a tiny computer which uses digital inputs and outputs to control electrical/electronic circuits. A Basic Stamp microcontroller will be programmed via a USB port to a PC using a PBASIC editor program. It will then be connected to digital inputs such as switches and sensors and used to control output circuits such as LED displays, DC motors, relays, buzzers and servo motors.
