  • Yep.

    The 3 pin adapter has the arrows on it and on the board.

    Every time you use it you go 'I'll remember which way the arrows go.'

    Next time you use you've forgotten it!

    Nothing bad happens if you connect it wrong.It just doesn't work.

    microcontrolleruser,

    Since the data and control lines of the Parallel port were all controllable by a PC program, it was perfect for "bit-banging".

    Bit-banging means that the program controls the port lines by turning bits in the port control registers on and off, literally banging on bits.

    The Propeller uses bit-banging for I2C and serial since it doesn't have the hardware that PICs and AVRs (used by the Arduino) have.

  • 'perfect for "bit-banging".'

    Thanks for explaining that.Heard about it all these years.

    Found the Stamp 1 adapter header on the Super Carrier board.

    Don't remember using that board a lot.

    Think it is on another board we used more.Don't have a regular Carrier board so I'm stumped right now.

  • microcontrolleruser,

    I don't know if your still playing with the BS1 but I came across this document which talks about an 8 or 16 MHz "Turbo" option.
    It states though that it can only be programmed at 4 MHz because it uses a Parallax BS1 interpreter chip.

    Either going to order the BS1 DIP or the Stamp2 SX first.

    Will eventually get both.

    That Seetron is another tech madman.That is up a couple levels work he does.

    Do you know if Stamp 1 will run at 1 khz?

    Do you know if it will run from a Function Generator square wave?

  • microcontrolleruser,

    The BS2sx was discontinued when all of the SX28s were used up.

    The Interpreter chip is still available:

    That's where all the SX28's went to.

  • 'That's where all the SX28's went to.'

    Really?

    So you can program them with SX key as an SX28?
