Types of microcontrollers

Post  wdbirch98 on Thu Oct 25, 2012 2:36 am

Hello,
Our team has decided to use the PICAXE microcontrollers, but we are having trouble programming the ones provided with this year's kit (18M2+). We have tested the circuit board with the microcontrollers provided with last year's kit (18M2) and it works fine. Any ideas as to why the new chips don't work? And do we have to use the chips provided in the kit, or can we use any PICAXE or GENIE chips (as long as they are provided by Rapid)?

Hi,

You can use any GENIE or PICAXE chips, it doesn't have to be the 18M2 variants. You are also permitted to design and make your own circuits and PCBs, you do not have to use the one supplied with the kit.

I am not sure why your program will not work on the 18M2+ revision. According to the PICAXE18M2 revision notes, the 18M2+ is completely compatible with the 18M2:

Does the program download to the chip but not function or will it not download at all?
