It should be possible, but not easy. Are you going to make an ISA one or a PCI one? I would think PCI would be better as most modern computers don't have an ISA slot anymore. You would have to learn the ins and outs of the PCI protocols and such. It is not impossible http://www.hackaday.com/2005/10/07/pci-simplified/.

In the picture from the first post I thought the gold edge connectors were routed holes (that gold looks like the desk under the card). I was wondering what good is that... Smile

The Basic Stamp is a low end microcontroller made by Parallax. It is programmed in interpreted basic (not basic that is compiled into hex code). This makes code execution slower than modern methods of microcontroller programming. I would suggest using the documentation as a starting point and use a PIC 16F628 or something along those lines with your favorite programming language.
