Development board for PICAXE 08M2+ "Picamoo"

February 24th 2016

A development board for the PICAXE 08M2+ microcontroller, a great little chip that can run at 32MHz - without any extra components!
Comes with everything you see in the pictures below. A great little microcontoller for everyone from beginner to expert. Programming is easy using a BASIC-like language, the IDE is free, just needs a 3.5mm to USB cable for transfering your program from a PC/Mac to your chip.
The board is stackable. Use male/female hex spacers and stack as many as you like! For more information on the PICAXE microcontroller go to the official PICAXE website.
Usage Suggestions
Ideal for prototyping any PICAXE 08M2+ project. An ideal platform for driving all of the Maximum Octopus kits!
