The PICAXE-40X1 IC is the biggest, baddest PICAXE made. LOTS of power, memory, and ability, all programmable in a graphical flowchart-like language or easy-to-learn BASIC.

Description [Hide]


NOW you're looking at the almighty kahuna of the PICAXE lineup. With the most pins, most memory, and all the features of the X1 series, you'll be hard-pressed to find a project that this chip can't handle.

The PICAXE-40X1 offers:

  • 1000 lines memory
  • 8-20 Inputs
  • 9-17 outputs
  • Hardware I2C support for easy peripheral connecting
  • Internal Timer
  • Increased variables and separate memory scratchpad
  • Enhanced mathematical functions
  • 3-7 8/10-bit Analog-to-Digital converters (ADC)
  • 20MHz maximum operation speed (4MHz normally)
  • Line-by-line simulation
  • 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 16F887 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.
