PICAXE Development Board (AXE091)

Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this development board but have a look at the rest of our development tools. This page is for reference only.

This is a PICAXE experimenter's kit including all the parts and widgets you need to get up and running with PICAXE programming. The development board comes fully assembled and includes an 18x1 PICAXE microcontroller. On top of that, this board is compatible with 8/18/28/40 pin PICAXE ICs.

  • Supports all 8/14/18/20/28/40 pin PICAXE chips
  • Computer download circuit pre-configured on PCB
  • Large breadboard area
  • Regulated power supply or battery powered, with LED power indicator
  • 3 LED indicator outputs
  • 3 Digital switch inputs
  • LDR and preset resistor analogue inputs
  • DS18B20 digital temperature sensor
  • Infrared sensor and LED output
  • Keyboard connector
  • Serial (inverted and true (MAX202 buffered)) RS232 connectors
  • Sockets for I2C and SPI memory chips (not supplied)
  • Socket and battery connector position for DS1307 Real Time Clock (not supplied)

    My PicAxe Development board arrived today. When attempting to power the board, the supply voltage drops from 5 Volts to about 0.3 Volts. This happened when using the 3 "AA" battery set and using a 9 Volt regulated power supply. Measuring the resistance across the 5 Volt input pins on the board shows a resistance of 0.2 ohms with nothing connected to the board.
    Any suggestions?

      I found a short between the input and ground pins of the 7805 chip on the backside of the circuit board. I cut the short between the pins, and saw a significant improvement in the resistance measurements. I replaced the 7805 and all appears to be fine (at least the green power LED light operates) with the 9 VDC adapter input.
