So, Im trying to make my own circuit for this electric skateboard I made. And I just need help with making sure I have everything I need to run it without parallax's boards.

This is what I think I need.

The Stamp

5v regulator for i/o

Sout, Sin, ATN, for serial? (Can i use a Serial to USB cable?)

the PCB

is that it?

Take A look at the OEMBS2,It is all through hole components. This will help give You an idea of whats needed for Your project.

You need a Stamp. If the total +5V current demand is less than 50mA, you can use the built-in +5V regulator on the Stamp module. Use Vin for a power source of 6-9V and the Vdd pin will output regulated +5V. The Stamp itself takes some current (about 10mA) leaving the rest for I/O and power for sensors.

The BASIC Stamp Syntax and Reference Manual (included in the Stamp Editor's help files) has a diagram showing how to connect Sout/Sin/Atn to a serial port or a USB to serial adapter. Make sure your adapter is one that can be used for programming a Stamp. The FTDI chip based ones generally work and Keyspan's High Speed Serial Adapter works.

This will help with serial to USB.
