  • Product KIT-11561 | about a year ago

    I had a wonderful time setting this up; no problem. I composed a blog in case setting up all the code was confusing http://jmd.dev4.webenabled.net/node/88

  • Product KIT-11561 | about a year ago

    The kit was missing the 2 x 2-pin female headers. Luckily I had them on hand; otherwise it went together just fine. (If that is unavailable, then it needs to have 4 each 4-socket headers; 2 of them must then be cut up to make 2-socket headers (which always sacrifices a pin in the process).

  • Product SEN-10586 | about a year ago

    Any chance of this board ever going on sale? (I have a psychological barrier about paying more than $100 for it)

  • Product DEV-11546 | about a year ago

    Glad to see it here; now focus on accessories: GPIO, LCD, camera, etc. 8 )

  • Product COM-00228 | about 2 years ago

    I made a circuit board for this chip (also works for the PICAXE-18M2); http://supertechlab.blogspot.com/2012/06/general-purpose-18-pin-picpicaxe-pcb.html

  • Product COM-10187 | about 2 years ago

    I made a circuit board for this versatile chip; please see http://supertechlab.blogspot.com/2012/06/general-purpose-18-pin-picpicaxe-pcb.html

  • Product SEN-09418 | about 3 years ago

    I composed a blog on using the Speakjet with a PICAXE-18M2 and an I2C temp sensor TMP102 in PICAXE Basic code for another programming example. Less than 40 lines of code made a system that compares the last temperature reading to the current one, and speaks “hotter” or “colder” if it changes a degree or more.

  • Product DEV-08316 | about 3 years ago

    They have updated the power project board for the PICAXE-18M2 parts, but the data sheet and photo on this page are not updated. I am excited about the upgrades reflected in M2 parts, I’m back ‘picking again. Here is a link to the new data sheet: [http://www.rev-ed.co.uk/docs/chi035a.pdf]

  • Product DEV-08330 | about 4 years ago

    I wish the PCB had 4 holes at the corners for mounting it.

No public wish lists :(
