They are exactly the same chip except the 40 has more I/O's. As a matter of fact, when you are writing code, the Picaxe editor will be set to 28x1/40x1 --they are both programed in the same mode.

You will need to plug that 40x into something though. The "standard" 28x board will not do it. I am not sure as to what boards picaxe sells now that will accept the 40x but I am sure something is available. Just check out the available boards and buy one you like.

thanks a ton for this info...

i was scared to do it with 40x as im just beginning to do it.

now that my doubts are all cleared i can make it even faster and better...

thanks a ton for ur help!!! :)

th page number in picaxe minual 1 is 39, which gives the pinout configuration for pic-40x1 IC

the page number 34 gives the pin out configuration for pic-28x1.

i hope now u can help me out with that...!!!

tthank you ver much for the website...!!!

 

 

I think these two chips are exactly the same except for the number of I/O pins. Could you please consult Picaxe Manual 1 and confirm the pin-outs on these two chips?

Actually, I tried to find the pinout diagrams in the manuals and I couldn't find them. Could you help me? If you could give me the page number of the manual where the pin-outs are, I could help you much better. I just need that page number so we will both be looking at the same thing.

What was the page number in the Picaxe manual one that shows the pin outs?
