Retired RETIRED

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.

This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.

Replacement: COM-10187. This has been replaced with the 18M2. This page is for reference only.

Description: PICAXE-18X microcontroller chip. Supports 5 inputs and 8 outputs. Extended features include 8x memory and i2c support.

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 look for a place to start with microcontrollers, PICAXE is a great way to go!

  • i need that PICAXE Microcontroller what i do???

  • This 18X is now obsolete as Picaxe has introduced the 18M2. <br />

    The question now is how long will it take Spark Fun to step up to the plate and offer the new version. I hope they don’t take the greedy tactic and wait until their stock of 18X runs out before offering the new 18M2.

  • It seems Revolution Education are replacing the picaxe 18X with the new 18M2. According the the datasheet at http://www.rev-ed.co.uk/docs/picaxe18m2.pdf it’s pin-compatible with the 18X. Is SparkFun likely to start carrying this part? Apparently the new device can even multitask… neat.
