Introduction: 2-Axis JoyStick on a Basic Stamp


Step 1: Your New Microcontroller.

Step back and look over the basic stamp and get to know everything on it.

Step 2: Install the -VSS Wires

Put two wires on the -VSS at the top of the board. then run one wire to pin 11 on the breadboard. The second wire will go to pin 0 on the breadboard.

Step 3: JoyStick Install

Now take the joystick and install it on the breadboard. it should be sitting all the way to the left at the very bottom. GND should be on pin 0 on breadboard.

Step 4: Capacitor Install!

You will need two 0.01uF capacitors. install them on the breadboard at pin 0,1 and then at 9,11.

Step 5: Resistor Time!

Now take 2 220-Ohm resistors and put on the breadboard at pin 1,4 then the other at 7,9.

Step 6: Pin Wires.

Now take 2 wires and put them on pin 0,1 then the other end on pin 4,7 on the breadboard.

Step 7: JoyStick Code

Here is the PBasic code to make the joystick work.

    Yes. the BS2 HW board has a bread board on it. right above 'running' you will see BS2. That's the microcontroller.

    please vote for me in the microcontroller contest!

    Thanks! I just added the code for it also.
