hi just wondering can i use a picaxe microcontroller without a project board (ie on its own or a bradboard?)
i dont think i even want to do this but it would help me learn a bit about how stuff works, probably
Yes you can but you need to make sure you follow the steps outlined in the picaxe manual 1 on how to set it up via BB. You will also need a way to program the chip....the project boards are useful for making that simple. To repeat, make sure you take a look at the manual 1 for the picaxe so you know what is involved.
