To programme my PIC chip I’m using the PICAXE Programming Editor, you can either programme using flow charts or in code, I’ll detail both below.

Right a nice simple programme, make an LED blink at regular intervals, I started with the flowchart programme as I find it easier to visualise:


So you can see that I’ve chosen output 0 and have set it to ‘High’ (on) then pause for 1000 (1 second) then ‘Low’ (off) and another pause. I linked it back to the start of the programme so it would just continue to flash.

It doesn’t look that much different in basic, you can see it uses the same labels but it’s all in text form:

I’ll upload a video of my blinking (no, I didn’t use bad language when programming, really…) LED later tonight.

And here it is…
