Pyxis OS

View Cart

Thom ( has developed a package of cores and libraries called Pyxis OS, which adds some impressive functionality to interface with the Buttonpad , TouchShield Slide , as well as SD cards.

Each of the primary pieces of the OS has their own library. PyxisSD for uSD access, PyxisFAT for the EEPROM file system, PyxisPad for interfacing with the ButtonPad, PyxisLCD for communicating with the LCD and Pyxis for the top-level management of all the pieces.

I’ve loaded the Pyxis OS onto a USB stick to make it even easier to get going right away (and the USB stick comes in handy too!)


  • 1 Kingmax 2GB USB pre-loaded with Pyxis OS


  • Option to have Pyxis OS preloaded on Slide (with Slide purchase)


In order to use the PyxisTSS core, please make the following entry in your boards.txt file: TSS

pyxis_tss.upload.protocol=butterfly pyxis_tss.upload.maximum_size=258048 pyxis_tss.upload.speed=57600

pyxis_tss.bootloader.low_fuses=0xFF pyxis_tss.bootloader.high_fuses=0×98 pyxis_tss.bootloader.extended_fuses=0xFB pyxis_tss.bootloader.path=PyxisTSS pyxis_tss.bootloader.file=PyxisTSS_boot.hex pyxis_tss.bootloader.unlock_bits=0xFF pyxis_tss.bootloader.lock_bits=0xFF
