This is a standalone board that incorporates the 18X and is USB-powered. It has connections for 4 servos, and external power supply capability for the servos. The solderless breadboard allows construction of additional circuits. Finally, the finished project can be powered by a 9-volt battery. This is a "must have " board for any hobbyist or robot builder.
The Micro-101 board is a complete, low-cost development platform designed for those interested in learning and using PICAXE(c) microcontrollers from Revolution Education (REV-ED). Its compact size, convenient features, and low price make it an ideal tool for the student and educator. The Micro-101 board is a great tool with which to get started with PICAXE© microcontrollers.

The Micro-101 board is designed to allow rapid prototyping with all PICAXE 18 pin devices. The board provides a large breadboard area for quick experiments. Also, it provides the connections for eight digital outputs, three analog inputs and five digital outputs.
The board can be powered by USB, a 9V battery or 2.1 mm wall adapter. It is mechanically interlocked to prevent dual connection. Either center-positive or center-negative wall adapter can be use. The board will automatically convert them into the correct polarity. On board 5V regular circuit can be draw up to 500mA. The socket connections for VIN, VCC, +3.3V and GND are provided.
This board features innovations that set it apart from others. Innovations feature like USB in-circuit programming. It allows the program to be able to download directly from USB port. Also, equipped with a user-programmable multi-color LED for status indication.
There is a beginning experience with soldering iron required. Please see Assembly Instruction for more detail.
Does NOT included 18x PICAXE chip, USB cable, or wall adapter. They can be purchase separately.
