    28x2 problem (or not)

    Hi, I recently built four AXE401s that I had, along with some 28x2s that I got a few weeks ago. It's so long since I built any of the AXE401 boards, that I can't remember if the led is supposed to flash. They all announce themselves in the terminal. Could you please refresh my memory? Thanks John

    GPS010 with axe211?

    Hi, I was looking at the gps010 because I wanted a module with an sma connector on it. However while reading through the datasheet I saw mentioned the axe211 with a 20x2 on it. Is this a new board? as even the link shown in the datasheet throws up the 404 page not found. Thanks john

    Anyone tried dcc coding decoding with picaxe?

    Hi, Has anyone succeeded in getting a picaxe to encode and decode dcc model train data? The specs are: A 1 is represented by a 58uS for a half cycle, and a 0 at least 100uS for a half cycle. This may turn out to be too difficult, but hopefully someone might have done it. Thanks & regards john

    lithium batteries fake!

    Hi, I bought four 'Ultrafire 3200mah' 18650 lithium poly batteries from a company called m-zone. They advertise through amazon uk. My intention was to use either a single cell for picaxe projects, or two with an ldo regulator for 5volts. I found out that they were going flat rather quicker than...

    netserver lcd display type?

    Hi, I've recently bought two picaxe netservers. My question is which backlit lcd (or oled) can I use, and do rev-ed sell them. I tried the oled display off the axe133, and although it appears to be wired the same, I get nothing. The only backlit lcds I have all have different pin arrangements...

    axe022 pin hole diameter too small?

    Hi, recently i got two axe022 protoboards, and have had quite a few in the past. Usually the first thing i do is install 2.54mm header pins to all four ports, and the pns port. I was quite surprised when i found the pins were far too large! Seeing as these are through plated holes, therefore...

    Hi does anyone have any experience with the Winstar WEG010016AWPP5N00000 ? I bought one to see what they are like, and that the pinout looks compatible with the axe133y, even though the software may not be. It looks like the axe133y uses the 8 bit interface to the displays, could technical...

    Using alternative crystals.

    How would you go about using a different crystal frequency with the 40x2? I would like to use a 19.6608MHz so that in theory the baud rates should be closer in tolerance. Any ideas, short of using an ordinary pic? regards john

    nkm2401 use as transceiver

    Hi I am looking into using the nkm2401s to send data over a transceiver link. As the kit stands, you have one transmitter and one receiver. Would it be possible to use a single 2401 at each end by switching the mode pin during transmit etc? Thanks & regards john
