This is the PICAXE-18M2 Starter Pack, a simple kit that provides you with everything you need to get started with 18-pin PICAXE controllers. The PICAXE-18M2 microcontroller is equipped with 16 input/output pins while the Standard Project Board comes fully assembled and is compatible with older PICAXE-18M and PICAXE-18X microcontrollers. All you need to do is insert the microcontroller into the board, supply power and start programming.
The PICAXE is an easy-to-program microcontroller system that exploits the unique characteristics of the new generation of low-cost flash memory based microcontrollers. These microcontrollers can be programmed over and over again without the need for an expensive programmer. The power of the PICAXE system is its simplicity. No programmer, eraser, or complicated electronic system is required 0 the microcontroller is programmed (with a simple ‘BASIC’ programming) via a 3-wire connection to the computer’s serial port. The operational PICAXE circuit uses just two components and can be easily constructed on a breadboard, strip-board, or PCB design.
Note: This kit does NOT include a programming cable or CD. The list of contents in the kit says they do, but they really do not. Please choose your PICAXE programming cable below. Additionally, all information that was on the CD can be found in the Documents section below.
- 1x PICAXE-18M2 IC
