Further Information

Hi just wondering does the software on the 18M2 boards work with the PICaxe 20 project board or do we need software for the picaxe 20 software
Asked by: Joseph Miller
The software is on the chip so the 18M2 chip has some boot loader software in it. You may need to update your flowchart software to use the M2 chips if you can't find the 18M2 in the list of PIC chips. Once this is done, as long as you select the 18M2 chip then you can use it with any board that has the right connections. The question of whether the 18M2 chip works with the PICAXE 20 project board is more a mechanical / hardware issue rather than a software issue. The PICAXE 20 project board is designed to take a 20 pin IC and the 18M2 is an 18 pin IC so the holder will have 2 more pins than you need. It would be possible to put the 18 pin IC in to the 20 pin holder, but don't do this as the power connections on the two chips are in different places and you are likely to damage the 18M2. I'm not sure why you would want to use an 18M2 in a 20 pin board when the 20M2 chips are the same price as the 18M2 chips.
