The Parallax BASIC Stamp 2 (BS2) is a low-cost single-board microcontroller useful for electronics projects. It is available as part of a "Board of Education" (BoE) kit that includes a solderless prototyping board, I/O pins and serial connectivity.
This MATLAB Support Package allows you to to communicate with a BS2 over a serial port, and is specifically intended for use with the Board of Education. It consists of a MATLAB API on the host computer and a PBASIC server program that runs on the BS2.
With this support package, you can:
* Communicate with BS2 from the MATLAB command line
* Read and write to the BS2 digital pins
* Output PWM, DTMF and X10 signals
* Measure pulse widths and digital state changes
The support package DOES NOT require any knowledge of PBASIC.
