Hi,
Will most of the parallax components for basic stamp work with the arduino too? (I know the ultrasonic rangefinder does)

Hi Nabisco,

I am a newbie myself, but since you havent got any replies i will try and give you an answer....(should be fairly true i hope!)


From what i know, any sensor should work with any microcontroller (ie its not like a mac program wont run on a PC).
All sensors usually output in one or the other common forms such as resistive output, analog voltage out, digital out, serial out etc etc

If you need more specific clarification you could post a link to the exact sensor/part you are talking about...

Hej,

indeed, we use a lot of the parallax sensors with great success. Nabisco's explanation is really good:

It should be in the books on electronics. This is something we try to show to people, it doesn't matter which microprocessor platform you are using, what matters is that you adjust the levels properly, read the signals, etc.

Hasta pronto,
