ZBasic-Arduino Compatibility Library v1.3  14 Jun 2013
The ZBasic-Arduino compatibility library can be used to compile Arduino applications to run on certain ZBasic target devices (e.g. those based on the mega328P, mega644P, mega1284P, mega1280 and mega2560). It can also be used to incorporate Arduino code elements into a ZBasic application. Read about the recent changes. See the ZBasic application note AN-223 - Using Arduino Code in ZBasic Applications for more information.

Converting PBasic Code to ZBasic
This document is intended to serve as a reference for those wanting to translate existing PBasic code for a 24-pin Basic Stamp (BS2) to the more advanced ZBasic dialect targeting a 24-pin ZX device (e.g. a ZX-24r). It will also be useful as a learning tool for those who have experience programming in PBasic and now wish to program in ZBasic. The conversion guide will also be of benefit to those converting from MBasic and other BASIC variants that are largely PBasic compatible (e.g. PICAXE, Basic ATOM, CUBLOC, etc.).

ZX-24 Series Schematic
Sometimes it is useful know what the circuitry is between your prototype and the actual processor. This PDF format image of the ZX-24 schematic will help you understand the circuit better. Alternately, you may wish to get the ZX-24 schematic in ExpressPCB format. The schematics for the ZX-24a, ZX-24p are identical with the exception of the use of a different CPU chip. The schematics for the ZX-24n, ZX-24r, and ZX-24s are identical with the exception of the use of a different CPU chip and that no serial EEPROM is present.

The schematic for the ZX-24x and ZX-24u is slightly different than that of the ATmega-based devices. A schematic for them is available as a PDF.
