What is PICAXE software?

PICAXE Virtual System Modelling (VSM) is a software circuit simulator, that combines a ‘virtual’ PICAXE chip with animated components and Berkeley SPICE circuit analysis to produce a simulation of a complete PICAXE project.

How much is a PICAXE?

Generous discounts for schools and colleges.

Chip Quantity per tube Equivalent cost per chip
PICAXE-20M2 22 1.62
PICAXE-20X2 22 3.12
PICAXE-28X1 15 3.08
PICAXE-28X2 15 5.05

What is PICAXE microcontroller?

A PICAXE microcontroller is a Microchip PIC microcontroller that has been preprogrammed with the PICAXE bootstrap code. The bootstrap code enables the microcontroller to be reprogrammed without the need for an (expensive) conventional programmer, making the whole download system a very low-cost simple serial cable!

What can a PICAXE 08M2 be used for?

The most commonly used chip is the 08M2, which can be used with the Kitronik Development Board. This board gives you an IC socket to put the chip into, terminal blocks for quickly attaching inputs and outputs and an on board stereo jack where the programming cable can be inserted.

What is a pickaxe chip?

A PICAXE chip is a standard Microchip PIC microcontroller that has been pre-programmed with the PICAXE bootstrap firmware code. The bootstrap code enables the PICAXE microcontroller to be re-programmed ‘in position’ directly via a simple ‘three wire’ download cable connection.

What is a mattock pick?

: a digging tool with a head having a point at one end and a transverse blade at the other.

What is a Picaxe 08M2?

PICAXE-08M2 microcontroller. The smallest, but most popular, PICAXE microcontroller. Very popular in education due to its low cost and small size, but also very popular in a wide range of hobbyist projects. Small but perfectly formed! This chip supports up to 6 inputs/outputs with 3 analogue/touch sensor channels.

What language does pickaxe use?

Programming Software The programming language is designed to give you all the powerful features of the microcontroller without any complicated programming language to learn. PICAXE BASIC is much simpler to learn (and to ‘debug’) than traditional microcontroller languages such as assembler code or ‘C’.

What is a 08M2 microcontroller?

Can you make a stone pickaxe in real life?

Unfortunately, you can’t make a stone pickaxe out of shale.

What kind of inputs does PICAXE 28 project board support?

Supports 8 digital inputs, 8 darlington driver outputs and 4 analogue channels. Includes input/output ribbon cables (microcontroller not included). Add a L293D motor driver chip to add reversible motor output capabilities. The PICAXE-28 Project Board can be used with any software application that supports the PICAXE hardware.

What’s the latest firmware for the PICAXE 28×2?

Current PICAXE-28X2 production firmware is version B.3 Known issues: ISSUE – SHIFTIN/SHIFTOUT IDLE HIGH MODES DO NOT WORK CORRECTLY The xxxx_H ‘idle high’ modes of shiftin and shiftout do not operate as expected. To workaround this issue use the bit-busting routines described in manual part 2.

What kind of socket do I need for PICAXE 28×2?

Note that the PICAXE-28X2 module is supplied with a single 28-way 0.6″ DIL socket. It is recommended to connect the PICAXE-28X2 module to a circuit board using this connector rather than directly soldering the PICAXE-28X2 module to the circuit board. The following table gives a brief summary of the various PICAXE chips.

How can I use PICAXE on my laptop?

Simply drag’n’drop blocks into a program stack. Windows, Mac, Linux, Chromebook or online. Brighter, better viewing angle, lower current. Once you have seen an OLED you will never look back. And now affordable, with our new ‘Serial OLED’ kit.
