Quick Overview

The new PICAXE system has many features of a high-end commercial microcontroller development system without the complexity and expense. In this book, you’ll quickly learn how to build microcontroller systems using principles that can be applied to high-end development systems. This updated edition shows you how to maximize the power of the PICAXE microcontroller.
Programming and Customizing the PICAXE Microcontroller, Second Edition :
• Covers support for Windows, Mac, and UNIX platforms.
• Includes flowchart and circuit-based simulation.
• Explains enhanced compiler features that make writing code easier, operation faster, and transition to other languages easier.
• Highlights improved simulation and debugging abilities.
• Covers upgraded serial communications commands that make use of hardware I/O where possible, allowing you to write code that is similar to commercial applications.
• Includes dozens of projects that demonstrate new features.
• Is linked to a website with additional projects and third-party software.
