Thread: difference between basic satmp and sx\b

The BS2sx is an SX processor with a proprietary Basic interpreter pre-programmed into the SX's flash memory.  The SX module also includes a voltage regulator, EEPROM for holding the interpretive program, and some interface logic for programming the EEPROM.  The interpreter executes about 4000 interpretive instructions a second.

Using SX/B with an SX processor is much faster and makes available more than the normal 16 I/O pins of a BS2sx.  The SX can execute as much as 50 million instructions a second although the instructions don't usually do as much as the BS2sx interpretive instructions.  SX/B is a compiler for a version of Basic that's deliberately very similar to the Basic used by the Stamps.  It's not identical and there's a lot you would have to learn about using SX/B that's different from the BS2sx Basic, but there are some excellent texts and magazine columns available for downloading from Parallax to help you with that.
