Tiny chipsets from Parallax that use a dialect of BASIC
. Perfect for robotics
and simple devices. They have a small code space (256 byte
s for the I, 2048 for the II), but amazing things have been squeezed into both versions. With commands to play tones, read resistors and buttons, output DTMF
, serial, and X-10
they go WAY past mere "smart logic".
Clones that run faster or cost less are available, as are compilers that target the PIC that the stamps use at their core.
