I just got in the latest batch of PCBs for my Kilroy Development board! Feel free to download and make your own from the project page!
Originally created in 2006, the Kilroy Development Board has given thousands (~450 per year) of middle and high school students the opportunity to learn basic electronics and programming. Using PICAXE‘s 18X, and now the 20×2/20m2 microcontroller, students can now program in BASIC and take full advantage of Arduino’s wide range of shields. The latest version of Kilroy incorporates the following features:
USB programming via the FT232RL
- RS232/5V Serial programming via the PICAXE 1/8″ programming cable
- 2 x Servo headers
- Complete compatibility with Arduino pinout
The PICAXE 20×2 microcontroller has the following features:
- Pins: 20
- Memory (lines): 1000
- I/O Pins: 17
- Outputs/Inputs: 1-17 (Configurable)
- ADC (L=low): 0-8
- Data Memory: 128 +i2c+128 Scratch
- Based on the PIC PIC18F14K22
