Hi there,

I know the stamp 2 takes in serial input but can it take in USB input.

If not do any other Stamp models do this?

Many Thanks to whoever can provide me with an answer to this question.

·· You cannot plug a USB connection directly into the BS2, however you can use a USB to Serial adapter to get the data into Serial format which the BS2 can deal with.

You can program a BASIC Stamp via USB using one of our USB-compatible boards:


Or you can use a USB-to-Serial converter to mate your USB connection with our serial boards:


No BASIC Stamp has USB conversion built into it; that requires significant extra components.
