Replacement: COM-10807. We are now carrying the M2-series of PICAXE microcontrollers. This page is for reference only.
Description: This is an enhanced PICAXE 20-pin microcontroller. The X2 series of PICAXE microcontrollers offer much more flexibility and features in comparison to the first generation PICAXEs. One of the key features of the X2 series is that almost every pin is configurable as an input or output.
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!
