View Full Version : Problem with Parallax's Professional Development Board

12-06-2006, 05:36 AM

· I have encountered a problem in using Parallax's Professional Developmkent board, which I think
is totally mine rather than the board's fault. It seems like that I did not understand where to position a BS2 module on the socket provided·on the development board, and I am afraid I burned the controller. Specifically, I placed the BS2 board in the upper 24 pins of the 40 pin socket, as I thought I should have following the description on the board itself. Well, when I powered up, the computer did not recognize the BS2. I removed it, insert it back into the Boe-bot where I extracted it·from and alas it did not recognize it either.

What did I do wrong? Should I have placed it in the lower pins of the socket? The inscription BS1 shown on the
board confused me. Anyway, I would appreciate it if someone point me to the right direction. I know it is my
fault rather than the board's which I think has all the components that I would need to train my students in
using Parallax products.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

·· If you look at page 12 of the PDF version of the book, Stamp Works, you will see the exact position of a BASIC Stamp 2 Module as shown in the attachment.· I hope this helps.· Take care.
