PICAXE is a microcontroller system that uses low cost FLASH memory based microcontrollers with a unique, pre-programmed PICAXE bootstrap code. This gives a device that may be reprogrammed typically 100,000 times without the need for an expensive and complicated programmer.

PICAXE is programmed using a simple BASIC language or by using an intuitive graphical flowchart system, enabling younger students and hobbyists to start generating programs quickly and easily.

Programming is carried out via a simple serial or USB cable which means that a simple project kit is easily assembled. In addition to the microcontroller chips, starter, tutorial, and upgrade kits are available to provide a complete PICAXE solution.

This PICAXE X2 microcontroller chip comes in a 20-pin package. Every pin is individually configurable for greater I/O flexibility. These latest designs of the PICAXE chip feature increased memory, scratchpad and RAM, plus additional features such as the ability to boot or run programs from I2C memory, additional timers, a SRLatch and additional interrupts.

  • Suitable for education, industry and hobbyists
  • Low cost and simple to use
  • Can be programmed using an intuitive graphical flowchart
  • Easy to use Program Editor software
  • 28- and 40-Pin versions are available also in surface mount types

19 December 2015 Question by: Hasan Imtiaz | Product code: 13-5000
Q. Would 6v - 4 AA batteries be too much for the chip?
A. Hi Hasan, thank you for your question. 6V is too high, 3 x AA batteries at 4.5V is fine to use or more commonly a stabilised 5V PSU would be used as a permanent solution like 85-2955
