The PICAXE 18M2+ 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 via the Logicator flowcharting software. Windows, Mac and Linux are all supported by the free BASIC software which can be downloaded from

Programming is carried out via a simple USB (13-0849) or serial (13-0847) cable. In addition to the microcontroller chips, starter, tutorial, and upgrade kits are available to provide a complete PICAXE solution.

  • Suitable for education, industry and hobbyists
  • Low cost and simple to use
  • Can be programmed using an intuitive graphical flowchart
  • Free, easy to use Programming Editor software

Picaxe-18M2 a versitile chip

Reviewed by: B. Watkins - 19 July 2018
The Picaxe-18M2 is an extremely capable microprocessor chip from Revolution Education Ltd. The versatility of the 18M2 combined with its very competitive price tag make it a first choice for hobbyists or for professional engineers when developing new projects. The only down side of this chip design is the positioning of VCC and ground pins in the middle of the chip rather that at the end as on the other Picaxe M2 chips. This is a very minor inconvenience when all the versatility of the chip is considered.
