    Hey guys

    I am trying to find a website that has some good electronics projects(I'm trying to find a good PICAXE). So does anyone here know a good site or sites with good PICAXE and electronics projects? Thanks

    I have minimal knowledge, let alone experience with picaxe, from what I do know however it is pretty much the BASIC of the low level electronics world (works well enough but will not really pay off later down the line).

    So instead can I interest you in a FPGA or CPLD dev kit and associated projects, the latter is perhaps not quite as in depth/flexible as FPGA stuff but still very, very useful (the original passme's used them) and depending on what you do potentially even higher performance.

    Do you know any good sites with schematics though for PICAXE's and genral electronics? I tried sending you a PM before FAST and it wouldn't let me [​IMG] .

    Wow, I need to clear out my inbox more often.

    I assume you want/ are aiming for fairly complex digital stuff and not resistors and LEDs, personally your best bet is a book (I have Digital Fundamentals by Thomas L. Floyd which is great to start and go fairly advanced with) although I have been doing the MIT open course lately and quite enjoying it:

    They have an odd way of doing things but I sense that is more because of the difference in location and my own education (a lot of their video lectures are in Real format so can I suggest real alternative if you do not already have it: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Real_Alternative.htm )

    I also suggest you go through the first few chapters of:
    Art of Assembly:

    And possibly this:
