SX Tech Tool Kit

If you have not yet programmed an SX, now is the time to get started. Parallax offers free development software, including SX/B, a BASIC language compiler for the SX microcontroller designed to help the transition from higher-level programming to assembly language. Using the SX-Key® USB, the primary development tool for the SX line of microcontrollers, you can program SX chips in-system and perform in-circuit source-level debugging.

The SX Tech Tool Kit is well-equipped with supporting material that makes it a great starting point to begin developing projects with the SX microcontroller. The SX Tech Tool Kit includes: SX-Key USB, SX Tech Board, (2) SX 28AC/DP chips, 50 MHz resonator, 4 MHz resonator, Scrolling Text Medal (available in kits while supplies last), SX-Key USB Manual v2.0, Programming the SX Microcontroller book by Gunther Daubach, and a USB cable.
Introduced in 1997, the SX chip is extremely fast, providing up to 75 MIPS of processing power in an 8-bit microcontroller. Deterministic timing makes interrupt programming easy and the SX can be programmed in its native low-level (assembly) language or the free SX/B compiler. The SX microcontroller is recommended for those who would like low cost and raw processing power. Previous microcontroller experience is also recommended.

Parallax (Futaba) Standard and Continuous Servo

Continuous Servo motor by Futaba-Parallax
Parallax Standard and Continuous Rotation servos are made exclusively by Futaba. Both servos may be controlled easily from a BASIC Stamp or SX chip I/O pin using PBASIC’s or SX/B’s PULSOUT commands. 

The Continuous Rotation Servo is especially well-suited to robotics applications and includes an adjustable potentiometer port to center the servo.

Specifications of Standard Servo and Continuous Rotation Servo:
Voltage 5 to 9 VDC 5 to 7.5 VDC
Movement Holds position in 180° range Bidirectional continuous rotation
Performance 41.6 oz-in torque @ 6V 0 to 50 RPM, linear response to PWM
Weight 42.5 g (1.50 oz) 42 g (1.48 oz)
Dimensions approx. 2.2 x 0.8 x 1.6 in (5.58 x 1.9 x 4.06 cm ) excluding servo horn
Servo-compatible 3-lead extension cables: 10-inch and 14-inch

Hitachi HM55B Compass Module

This Compass Module made exclusively by Parallax is a dual-axis magnetic field sensor built around the Hitachi HM55B IC. Parallax has made this compass IC accessible by providing Hitachi’s surface mount sensor chip with a 3 V onboard voltage regulator and resistor protection, all in a 0.3 inch wide 6-pin DIP module. Acquiring measurements from the module is made easy with a synchronous serial interface, and even easier with the BASIC Stamp 2 commands SHIFTIN and SHIFTOUT.

Features of the Hitachi HM55B Compass Module include:
• Sensitive to microtesla (μT) variations in magnetic field strength
• Simplifies direction by resolving magnetic field measurements into two components axes
• 6-bit (64-direction) resolution after calibration
• Only 30 to 40 ms between start measurement and data-ready with simple synchronous serial interface
• Built-in resistor protection for data pins eliminates bus conflict risks
• Compact and breadboard-friendly 0.3 inch, 6-pin DIP package
• Compatible with all Parallax microcontrollers
• 3.3 or 5 V operation
• Operating temperature range: 32 to 158 ºF (0 to 70 ºC)

FlexiForce Sensor


The active sensing area of the FlexiForce is a 0.375 inch diameter circle at the end of the sensor. The conductive leads are easy to connect to a breadboard or through-hole area. The Flexiforce has an ideal output for A/D conversion - 0 V is no force and 4.2 V is 100 lbs. The kit includes a 220 ohm resistor, 0.1 uF and 0.01 uF capacitors and the Flexiforce sensor.
Operating temperature range:

15 to 140 ºF (-9 to +60 ºC)

The PING))) ultrasonic sensor

The PING))) ultrasonic sensor provides a low-cost and easy method of distance measurement. This sensor is perfect for any number of applications that require you to perform measurements between moving or stationary objects. Naturally, robotics applications are very popular but you’ll also find this product to be useful in security systems or as an infrared replacement if so desired. You will definitely appreciate the activity status LED and the economic use of just 1 I/O pin. Plus, the 3-pin header makes it easy to connect using a servo extension cable, no soldering required.

The PING))) sensor measures distance using sonar; an ultrasonic (well above human hearing) pulse is transmitted from the unit and distance-to-target is determined by measuring the time required for the echo to return. Output from the PING))) is a variable-width pulse that corresponds to the distance to the target.

• Range: 2 cm to 3 m (~0.75 in. to 10 ft)
• Supply Voltage: 5V +/-10% (Absolute: Minimum 4.5 V, Maximum 6 V)

SolarSpeeder robot kit

The SolarSpeeder is meant to be an introduction to building BEAM robots. Although not a robot itself, the SolarSpeeder teaches the fundamental skills needed for more advanced designs. This competition encourages the builder to make sure the electronics are working properly, and more importantly, make sure the SolarSpeeder is mechanically sound.

A standard, stock SolarSpeeder should be able to cover 3 meter distance. With some careful tweaking, you should be able to aim it with some degree of accuracy, and get it as close to the target as possible.

SHT-75 Humidity & Temperature Sensor


The SHTxx is a single chip relative humidity and temperature multi sensor module comprising a calibrated digital output. Application of industrial CMOS processes with patented micro-machining (CMOSens® technology) ensures highest reliability and excellent long term stability. The device includes a capacitive polymer sensing element for relative humidity and a bandgap temperature sensor. Both are seamlessly coupled to a 14bit analog to digital converter and a serial interface circuit on the same chip. This results in superior signal quality, a fast response time and insensitivity to external disturbances (EMC) at a very competitive price.

Each SHTxx is individually calibrated in a precision humidity chamber. The calibration coefficients are programmed into the OTP memory. These coefficients are used internally during measurements to calibrate the signals from the sensors.

The 2-wire serial interface and internal voltage regulation allows easy and fast system integration. Its tiny size and low power consumption makes it the ultimate choice for even the most demanding applications.

The device is supplied in either a surface-mountable LCC (Leadless Chip Carrier) or as a pluggable 4-pin single-in-line type package. Customer specific packaging options may be available on request.
