"This programmer is ideal for all of your e-textiles project needs including adding the endless possibilities of programming to your wearable projects!

This PICAXE control board offers an easy introduction to the world of wearables. The board can be used to control inputs and outputs like switches, sensors, LEDs, buzzers and many more to add another dimension to your next wearable project!

It is packed full of features and like all of our Electro-Fashion PCBs is double sided and has large connection points for the conductive thread making the connection very reliable.

On-board there is a PICAXE 14M2 programmable IC, a dimmable white LED, a momentary push switch, a 3.5mm stereo socket for ease of programming, and a JST connector for attaching a battery pack.

There are also 6 sewable I/O pins, making this a really versatile control board. Pins C0, C1, B5, B4, B3, B2 (the on-board LED) have Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and Pins C0, C4, B5, B4, B3 have built in Analogue-to-Digital Conversion (ADC).

Pull-down resistors have been included on the board for pins C0, C1 and C4 so that you can easily use those pins with switches from our Electro-Fashion range.

It can be powered either by the JST connector, or the clearly marked '+' and '-' connections via conductive thread, from a power source between 3V and 5.5V.

The board can be programmed via the official PICAXE software (in BASIC or flowcharts) to make programming accessible even to complete beginners. Just download the free software from our PICAXE section of our website and connect the board to a PC via a PICAXE USB download cable."
