Question for Gordon Mccomb

In you book robot builder's bonanza 2nd edition, you make a Ir reciever using the BasicX-24. Would it still work if I went with the cheaper
BasicX-35?
Since it has the same software ase the BasicX-24.

It's been a long time since I used the BasicX chips. I'm not sure where they are at, firmware wise. I never used the BX-35, so I don't know if the code will work or not. However, their Web site says it is software compatible.
Is the BX-35 really that much cheaper? It needs a crystal, some EEPROM, and a voltage regulator, all of which are already on the BX-24. The savings might be $10 or so in the end, and you still need to build a board for everything. I think the BX-35 is cheaper if you designing your own board. The BX-35 also has more available ports, obviously.

You reposted this message a couple of times. You might want to look at your news posting program.
Elsewhere here I noted I am not doing the revision. Another author is redoing the book, and I am moving on to other opportunities. I have no new books planned.
I have no idea when the publication date is. You really can't go by anything Amazon or Barnes & Noble has on their sites, as the information tends to be out of date anyway.

Thanks for the compliment. But I'm not throwing anything away. Currently, I have plans in the robotics field other than books. Instructional videos, for example. Several interesting things in the works.
