- this might be the answer to all your problems...

 

picaxe programming; only one interrupt condition?? what??

Hi more knowlegable people.

I've made a little robot that runs into walls. It's meant to do that, but it's not meant to try to burrow through the wall - so I have what I'm sure is the normal bits and pieces - just debounced trigger switches and a ~10ms main loop that can react fast enough to change direction and stop the burrowing...

wiping my picaxes....

I seem to have wiped two picaxe 18X chips in the last two weeks - my circuits are fine, they work, but occasionally when I do SOMETHING (I have only wiped them twice, and so I don't know what it is that I'm doing...) they get wiped - no bang, no smoke, no smell, no heat, just nothing.

 

So - how easy is it to wipe a picaxe 18x? I seem to be doing it with horrifying regularity - are they really that fragile?
