Programming a Picaxe 08m Chip

Posted December 11, 2011 by Chris

“The Picaxe 08m is a PIC chip with a pre-installed boot-loader that allows programming the chip via a serial port. This is similar to the way that the Arduino has an AVR chip with a pre-installed boot-loader. There‚Äôs also some software for the Picaxe for handling the programming, a bit like the Arduino IDE.”
