Description: This is the PICAXE-14M2 microcontroller chip.
PICAXE is a neat entry-level microcontroller system that is relatively cheap to get started with. The chip is programmed with a simple serial connection and the BASIC development environment is free! PICAXE has some excellent educational applications and support, and is a great entryway into more complicated embedded systems. If you’re looking for a place to start with microcontrollers, PICAXE is a great way to go!

These chips are extremely easy to work with. They aren’t Arduino killers, but fill in very nicely where you don’t need/want a separate circuit board or need to roll your own PCB.

I cut my teeth learning PICAXE BASIC using the 14M2. This chip is a great place to start for most projects since it has good amount of I/O pins, multiple ADC channels, Hardware PWM, and 2 memory slots (using ProgramEditor6). It’s my pic (oooo) of the litter. Here’s the pinout for this chip: ttp://www.picaxe.com/Site_Resources/Media/Site_1/pinout/pinout14m2.jpg
