The Maximite is a small and versatile computer running a full featured BASIC interpreter with 128K of working memory.
It will work with a standard VGA monitor and PC compatible keyboard and because the Maximite has its own built in SD memory card and BASIC language you need nothing more to start writing and running BASIC programs.
The Maximite also has also 20 input/output lines which can be independently configured as analog inputs, digital inputs or digital outputs. You can measure voltage, frequencies, detect switch closure, etc and respond by turning on lights, closing relays, etc – all under control of your BASIC program.
This is a very interesting project – especially as it has a choice of VGA or composite video output and includes an SD card interface and especially as there is a $20 version!
The “The Maximite Story” also makes very interesting reading
By the way I have built and highly recommend the Intelligent Fan Controller that Geoff also has on this site.
