PICAXE-18M1 was good. The successor, PICAXE-18M2 is better. Now with parallel multitasking (wow!), adjustable pin arrangement, extra ADC, and more configurability.

Description [Hide]

PICAXE keeps cranking up the improvements! This addition to the popular 18 pin PICAXE is quite notable:

  • Almost every pin is configurable, so you can have 13 outputs instead of the default 8 (if you wish!) – the choice is yours! Or stay with the default pin configuration if that works best for you.
  • Parallel tasks! The 18M2 can now run four separate tasks in parallel, allowing a Logicator flowsheet to contain 4 separate start cells and 4 separate flowchart tasks. Multitasking is also supported in BASIC program listings.
  • Need more input pins? The reset and serial input pins can now be used as 2 extra inputs!
  • Extra ADC (Analog-Digital Converters) on other pins
  • New lower 1.8V operation now makes the 18M2 ideal for use with 3V battery packs - save the cost of one battery!
  • Support for touch sensor inputs.
  • New software ‘reset’ command.
  • The 18M2 device replaces all of the older 18/18A/18M/18X parts and so gives 18X equivalent memory capacity (2048 bytes, up to 1800 lines of program) at the same price as the older 256 byte 18A/18M – so that is 8x the memory capacity of the older parts for no extra cost!
  • Faster internal resonator (up to 32MHz) means up to 8x faster program processing.
  • Fully backwards compatible with all existing 18 pin PICAXE project boards and programs written for any older 18 pin PICAXE part.
  • Twice as many (now 28) general purpose byte variables, with up to a total of 256 bytes of RAM.
  • New ‘time’ variable counts elapsed seconds.
  • 256 bytes of non-volatile data EEPROM memory.
  • Full support for common features such as ring tone tunes, servos, digital temperature sensors and infra-red input and output on any pin.
  • Full support for advanced features like DAC, SR latch, hardware serial commands (for much faster baud rates), i2c memory devices and PWM control of motors.
  • The PICAXE-18M2 is a new custom part factory manufactured by Microchip Inc. for Revolution Education and so is factory engraved with the full PICAXE-18M2 name – no more confusing PIC numbers for students to decipher!
