How to get started with PICAXE 08M microcontroller




This is instructable for how to get started with PICAXE 08M microcontroller.
To get started, you need:
– 08M Protoboard or same kind of board (Can be homemade)
– A LED
– AXE027 USB Cable
– 3V Power supply

How to get started with PICAXE 08M microcontrollerStep 1: Connect the led to pin 4

Just  connect cathode lead to Ground, and anode lead to pin 4 of the microcontroller like this

Step 2: Connect the power and the cable
