PARTS Mini-Sumo Robot Kit: Programming Cable


Note orientation of PC connector

A 3 wire connector cable is needed to connect the BASIC Stamp 1 to a PC's parallel port. A male DB25 is wired up as shown to a three female pin connector. Solder three wires to the 3 pin connector, then to the DB25 as shown above.

Plug the DB25 into the PC parallel port one and the three pin connector into the circuit board. Align the 3 pin connector's edge labelled "PC edge" above (the Gnd wire) with the "PC" label on the circuit board.

The PC label indicates the Gnd connection, which is the pin with the square copper pad; the other two pins have round pads.
