Description: This is the PICAXE-20M2 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!

I’m assuming that because the PICAXE is loosing ground to the Raspberry Pi computer; that this would be the reason for pushing up the price of the PICAXE.
It doesn’t appear that this product has had any changes made to it in a number of years. I don’t believe the price has been modified from the records I am seeing. Thanks
