The BASIC Stamp microcontroller is available from Parallax Inc. At its heart lies a PIC microcontroller, a flash EEPROM and some RAM. The EEPROM contains a BASIC interpreter and space for your program tokens to be stored. You compile BASIC programs into a token stream and download them to the STAMP via a Windows program. The STAMP then interprets and executes the programs. Basic STAMP The STAMP is ideal for simple control projects, and is great for hobby robotics. It has an on-board analog to digital converter so taking measurements is very straightforward. The dialect of BASIC it speaks is simple enough to be learned overnight.

NEW: STAMP Linux tools available!

There is an excellent page available that provides details on STAMP programming for Linux. Thanks to Brian Lavender and Bill Kendrick for the hard work!
