Is the POP-BOT arduino microchip compatible with the BOE-BOT developer board?
July 26, 2011
I have an Inex POP-BOT which came with an arduino-like microchip, and was thinking of getting a BOE-BOT, which uses a Board of Education with a BASIC stamp microchip attached to it. Now my question is, there two chips seem to look identical in size, and can both be detached from their respective developer boards, so what I'm wondering is, would they be interchangeable?
This would be really handy as it would mean I could buy a BOE-BOT and be able to program in either in the BASIC stamp or arduino languages. It would also allow me to have all the advantages of the BOE-BOT robot (which I feel is superior to the POP-BOT).
They seem to be similar in set-up, so I can't really see any reason why not, but I just wanted to ask someone here to make sure.
