    HexBot needs a new chip ... More RAM maybe even a Faster Clock!

    That's tidy... like all the stuff you do... but a servo controller board is all servos sort of simultaneous and uses 2 pins clk,data. The guy who posted this has been on another forum and said polulo servo controller boards are good but I think ebay is always cheaper. Regards stan

    Vintage Meccano Magazine Online

    I remember meccano as a kid and I'm 67 now. Got a load of all the bits and motors cogs nuts and bolts for your 5 bucks from what we call a charity shop. I think you call them thrift shops. Lots of handy bits and bobs! Steel is heavy though. We don't have Walmart here, we got screwfix... honest...

    HexBot needs a new chip ... More RAM maybe even a Faster Clock!

    Using a 16 channel servo controller and a board with 2K ram and 16MHz... which in pic terms would be 64MHz. I needed 2 servo controllers to use 18 servos... wasteful. I could have done this with a 18f25k22...1.5k ram. Using the 16 channel servo controller takes all weight off a picaxe.. it does...

    Picaxe Oscilloscope & Picaxe 28X2

    Hi guys, what's 28x2 scope about please? I tried making a "scope" but no analogue hardware just take a-d samples and display. Was this a project? seems a long time since someone mentioned it.

    TOF10120 Laser Range Sensor Module

    I did the picaxe ssd1306 setup years ago...and the line draw. https://picaxeforum.co.uk/threads/picaxe-tron.29727/ The rest..ie circle--use mid point not trig boxes and triangles are lines joined. cls is write bytes to screen. I tried to do a faster line code than gcb but couldn't beat it...

    I uses pulsin so get a value that represents distance. it has to be converted to mm. but use the actual value instead. #define echo = portB.1 ;ultrasonic sensor trig pin.echo pin joined to trig by 1.8k resistor. range is a word value ping: retry: dir echo out set echo on dir echo in pulsein...

    Losing hours over stupid lcds

    I just used the picace rs232 to 3.5 jack plug and never got port problems. I've not binned it all and have erased picaxe chips and they work perfect as native pics... Bit of a waste though I thought. 8bit chips are useful for lots of stuff,It's just what you want them to do...like work in your...

    Losing hours over stupid lcds

    it's so long since using I don't understand port problem. Win com ports? You set it up correct?or don't care? I found win ports change when using usb especially arduinos and clones so I find it odd but you always get a choice of 3 ports and one is correct.

    Maybe you forgot how to use picaxe, maybe chips us. I got a component tester from fleabay and it is brill..even tests capacitor esr. and it uses a coloured graphic display for £6. 2020 nearly over and sweating over 2line lcd...l8r Get creative with a graphic display. they are so much more...

    You can erase picaxe chips and then they are the just pic chips. I did with a 28x2 and now it's a 18f25k22. I got some salvaged 2 line displays...I think they use bulbs for back light. I hate binning stuff but got to. Didn't bin my m20 picaxe or boards but other stuff to do... like proper cheap...

    TOF10120 Laser Range Sensor Module

    I hope to discuss things with you on the gcb forum where talking about picaxe or arduino code is Not a problem. I have not seen you on the forum yet. You have to sign in like picaxe. From experience a 328 uno or nano from fleabay would be your best choice, unless you own a pickit 2 or 3 or other...

    Losing hours over stupid lcds

    I saw a picaxe hi2c address finder on the forum recently. 0x3f * 2 = 0x7e. Going back to using a system like picaxe after not using for a while and it all seems re-learning. Been there,done that.
