This PICAXE-18M2 USB Starter Pack is ideal for getting familiar with PICAXE chips and the endless possibilities of applications associated with PICAXE.

PICAXE is an easy to use, cost effective, customisable, expandable solution for all of your programming needs. Customise your code for a number of uses based on the specifications of the chip.

The software features both simple flowchart and full programming capabilites in the BASIC programming language.

To get started with the PICAXE® system, a starter pack is recommended. You can click here to view our PICAXE webpage and download the PICAXE software from the links provided.

The Proto Board supplied in this pack is a small assembly board that allows rapid prototyping of PICAXE-18 circuits. The board provides the basic circuit and download connector, with a small prototyping area to allow connections of input and output circuits. Examples include connecting LEDs, buzzers and sensors.

The project board supplied in this kit is the PICAXE-18 standard interface board which is a pre-assembled board fitted with a Darlington driver chip so that output devices such as motors and buzzers can be connected directly to the board.

The board supports 5 inputs and 8 outputs.


  • Easy to use chip.
