WHIP UP SOME FIENDISHLY FUN PICAXE MICROCONTROLLER DEVICESRon has worked hard to explain how the PICAXE system operates through simple examples, and I’m sure his easy-to-read style will help many people progress with their PICAXE projects. –From the Foreword by Clive Seager, Revolution Education Ltd.
This wickedly inventive guide shows you how to program, build, and debug a variety of PICAXE microcontroller projects. PICAXE Microcontroller Projects for the Evil Genius gets you started with programming and I/O interfacing right away, and then shows you how to develop a master processor circuit.
From Hello, World! to Hail, Octavius!
All the projects in Part I can be accomplished using either an M or M2 class PICAXE processor, and Part II adds 20X2-based master processor projects to the mix. Part III culminates in the creation of Octavius–a sophisticated robotics experimentation platform featuring a 40X2 master processor and eight breadboard stations which allow you to develop intelligent peripherals to augment Octavius’ functioning. The only limit is your imagination!
