  • PICAXE-20X2 Microcontroller Chip
    Works great!
    Review by Marcos
    Needed a cheap and easy way to read/write to an EEPROM running UNI/O and this did the trick. Easily put the download circuit for the programmer and hooked up the communication pin on a single breadboard, as well as hooking up a few LEDs for debugging. I wanted to build a simple device similar to one that used an Arduino for UNI/O, but the Arduino required writing significant amounts of low-level code. All that bit-level stuff is built into this chip's basic instruction set, so the program written in PIC basic is really simple and small.

Carlitos’ Projects: Speech-Controlled Arduino Robot

Posted on March 01, 2011

By Carlos Asmat & filled under Arduino Tutorials, Electronics, Robotics Projects & Kits.

We all dream of having appliances and machines that can obey our spoken commands. Well, let’s take the first step towards making this happen.  In this second iteration of Carlitos’ Projects, we are going to build a speech-controlled Arduino-based robot. You may be thinking that making such a robot must be a very complex task. After all, humans take many years before they [...]

We sell PICAXE products (including chips) here: http://www.robotshop.com/en/revolution-education-en.html We are aware of the program FlowCode, but do not support ...

Another way would be to use a 555 timer , but we do not have any in the RobotShop catalogue. Yet another could be to use an inexpensive ...

Yes! Awesome :) Thanks for adding us!

I have been using an SD21 with a picaxe chip. I can't wait to try the SSC-32 with your sequencer software! Looks much easier!

Thanks CBenson!

I am a beginner. Is there much support here if / when I have questions?

That's what I love about PICAXE - the community is so helpful :) Is it the same here?
