    KiCad footprint for 3.5mm stereo serial part TC38-010

    Hi, how do I import this file into KiCad as it looks to be a .kicad_mod rather than a .lib ect? Do I need to change the file type?

    Are Rev-Ed & Picaxe missing out??

    The reason I started this thread knowing/not knowing/assuming that the forum was funded or looked after by Rev.Ed wasn't as a platform to start the advertising of the competition, though I do like a good constructive discussion about the cross platforms, but was just to high-lite my concern that...

    Are Rev-Ed & Picaxe missing out??

    A few weeks ago I found myself watching a chap doing some basic flowchart programming on YouTube from about three years ago and then just stopped, so I sent him the message below...... "It looks like it's been a while now but have you ever planned on carrying on with these tutorials" To which...

    Are Rev-Ed & Picaxe missing out??

    This is a quote from "10 Ways to Explore the World of Electronics" from Dummies and Picaxe gets a mention. "A microcontroller is a tiny computer on a chip. You create a program on your computer, and download the program onto the chip. Then when you power up the chip, it follows the...

    Are Rev-Ed & Picaxe missing out??

    This is what I meant about Rev-Ed/Picaxe being out there more so that people see it and know about it, this would then spark more amateur tutorials as well as Picaxe's offical ones. A "Picaxe for Dummies" book would be nice too just to note.

    Are Rev-Ed & Picaxe missing out??

    It's nice to see that it's not just me that thinks this then. Do Rev-Ed and Picaxe them selves have a presence on the forum to take note and maybe look at the space in the market they're missing out on? I think an educational and instructive channel on YouTube these days is a must if you want to...

    Are Rev-Ed & Picaxe missing out??

    I've dabbled with Picaxe on and off for well over ten years now but never in a serious way but always willing to learn more all the time, this time 5yrs ago I couldn't program a PLC and now that I work with them daily I manage round a Mitsubishi PLC quite happily. I was having a look around...

    Anyone Used Stone Displays?

    Might be worth steering clear then and buying a nextion display when I need to.

    Anyone Used Stone Displays?

    Been reading bits on the Nextion display and watching videos on youtube as you do, have known about the nextion display for a while but happened to stumble across Stone HMI's, similar setup to the Nextion as in has a PC editor for making the GUI up and a serial connection. Has anyone used them...

    Thoughts on adding additional I/O

    This works in the PE6 simulator as an idea of turning a bit on and off from a picaxe input, this being part of b0 would the be sent to the MCP23017 and in theory output A0 would turn on. if pinB.6 = 1 then let bit0 = 1 else let bit0 = 0 endif I didn't think it would be that easy haha...

    Thoughts on adding additional I/O

    Hi, question about the code I've written below. It sets up two MCP23017's to be all outputs. I've used b0 to b3 so that I can use the "bits" in my program as if you would an output on a picaxe it's self, so instead of say High C.7 I can do High MCP1_A0 (bit0 of b0) which gets sent to the first...

    Thoughts on adding additional I/O

    Morning chaps, thanks for your replies to the thread, I will have a read through the posted links. I wasn't looking at anything as complicated as analogue expansion (not yet anyway) just digital I/O. I was thinking that my 12 ish relays might be nicer fed from some sort of I/O expansion chip...

    Thoughts on adding additional I/O

    Just been having a route about the forum and the picaxe website in the FAQ section and just wondered what fellow forumers (if that's a word) thoughts are on adding I/O. There are the following options from what I can see:- 1. Use a bigger picaxe chip (probably the easiest thing to do) 2...
