PICAXE-08 Starter Kit (USB)
This PICAXE-08M Starter Pack (AXE003U) is a self-assembly kit, based on the PICAXE-08M2 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-08M2 IC socket (to easily replace the PICAXE-08M2) All necessary extra components for the PICAXE-08M2 to operate USB cable connector
The project board can be used with any software application that supports the PICAXE hardware.
