BASIC Stamp HomeWork Board

The BASIC Stamp HomeWork Board, a low-cost board similar to the Board of Education with a BASIC Stamp microcontroller built right into the PCB. The lower cost HomeWork Board also makes it ideal for take-home projects and dedicated uses.

The HomeWork board may appear less robust, but it’s a favorite of many customers, and every bit as capable as a Board of Education depending on how you provide power. On the HomeWork Board, the power LED is only lit while the BASIC Stamp microcontroller is running a program, so you could put it in SLEEP/NAP for months and still use the same 9 V battery.

  • BASIC Stamp 2 microcontroller built directly into the HomeWork board
  • 220 ohm resistors built into each I/O pin for I/O protection
  • dimension 3 x 4 in (76.2 x 101.6 mm)
  • power supply 9 V battery only (not included)
  • servo ports None, but may be done on a breadboard with 3-pin headers
