Pick-Axe Definition: A Tool for breaking new ground.
All of these grouped items are covered on other pages. This is just a different point of view. It can be compared almost directly to the MicroMint PicSticTM Product. This group of components has been put together to simplify the component needs and concept of using the PicBasic Compiler in conjunction with my Cheap Programmer and  SimmStick target boards. The net result is a device that runs programs written for the original Basic Stamp 1 on a PIC16F84 or PIC16C84. You may order any individual item or all items if you wish.

Not all components are listed as I don't chase the minor items required, but I make sure that
everything that may be awkward to obtain is available from me. These items are listed in logical groups: So they don't include down to the last resistor and capacitor, only the items listed.

DT001 Programming Board. $35

Add $3AUD Postage for Pick-Axe within Australia and $7AUD postage International.

Compilers:
The PicBasic Compiler  takes programs written for the BASIC Stamp 1 and converts them into PIC compatible hex or binary files. These files can be programmed directly into a PIC16F84 microcontroller eliminating the need for a BASIC Stamp module.

CCS PCM "C" Compiler is the cost effective alternative for C programmers using the F84 micro.

HI-TECH PICmicro "C" Compiler is the ultimate Professional package for PICmicros.

Check the Dontronics "Manual and Disk" prices page for full pricing calculations on all PIC software.
If you purchase any item on this page in conjunction with any "Manual and Disk" software, postage is included.

And check out the Dontronics Upgrade price from Standard PicBasic to the PRO version of PicBasic.

Also available: DT003 board at $15AUD. This is a SimmStick bus Power supply and Max-232 comms board. It isn't a programmer.
