PICAXE-20 Starter Pack

Product Details

This PICAXE-20M Starter Pack (AXE005U) is a self-assembly kit, based on the PICAXE 20M2 Microcontroller. The starter pack is targeted at schools and general educational purposes, but the open design also makes it very useful for hobbyists to use it as a project board, or for any one who wants to self study, or learning by experimenting.

The 'starter pack' includes both a training board, download cable and a battery box. The software needed is free, so all extra you need to get started, is a computer and batteries. Furthermore, free training resources and tutorials are provided in the PICAXE manual (Part 1 - Getting Started).

The project board comes with assembly instructions, and when completed, the board will contain the following:

  • PICAXE-20M2
  • IC socket (to easily replace the PICAXE-20M2)
  • All necessary extra components for the PICAXE-20M2 to operate
  • Darlington driver buffer chip, that enables you to connect higher power output devices (such as motors, solenoids, relays) directly to the board (current up to 500mA)
  • USB cable connector

The project board can be used with any software application that supports the PICAXE hardware. Soldering is required.
