The PICAXE-18X IC is a tiny single-chip computer that you can program in a graphical flowchart-like language or easy to learn BASIC. Limited stock remaining at 20% off!

Description [Hide]

The PICAXE-18X is a chip where you start to really see the advantages of playing with the "X" series of PICAXEs. Most notably, you get I2C, which is a really easy-to-use protocol to talk to other I2C-talking devices or microcontrollers. Did we mention the ton of extra memory too? That can be kinda handy. It's the start of the really "deluxe" grade of PICAXE.

We have very limited stock of this item left, and are selling them for 20% off the normal price. Get 'em before they're gone!

The PICAXE-18X offers:

  • 600 lines memory
  • 5 inputs
  • 8 outputs
  • I2C Interfacing for easy peripheral connecting
  • 8/10-bit Analog-to-Digital converters (ADC)
  • 8MHz maximum operation speed (4MHz normally)
  • Supports 
    • Interrupts
    • 12-Bit Digital temperature sensors
    • Servo control
    • Keyboard input
    • IR transmit/receive
    • Plays user-defined musical tones
    • PWM Motor control
    • Input Pulse counting
    • Serial output & debugging via programming cable
    • Higher baud rate for serial work
  • Based on the PIC 16F88  IC

The PICAXE system is a powerful, low cost microcontroller programming system designed to simplify educational and hobbyist use of microcontrollers. PICAXE chips can be programmed in a graphical 'flow-chart' environment or in easy to understand BASIC.

Memory (lines) = Approximate number of lines of program code the chip can hold.
Data Memory = Bytes of EEPROM memory on board. "128 (-Prog)" means 128 Bytes less the space needed for your program. 256+I2C means 256 Bytes + any external EEPROM space you add via the I2C interface).
Polled Interrupt = A process that automatically checks a pin in between each command to see if something has happened (very useful!)
