Microchip Offers Free Embedded Control Systems Seminars

4/11/2003 - Microchip Technology (Nasdaq: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, announced that it is offering free, half-day Embedded Systems Seminars at various locations throughout North America, United Kingdom, Erie and South Africa, running from May 5 to June 26.

Attendees will learn about the latest Microchip product offerings through discussion and solution-based demonstrations. For example, instructors will show how Microchip's PIC® microcontrollers with nanoWatt technology conserve power through a demonstration that measures temperature powered by a grapefruit.

Another tutorial provides an introduction to the MCP6S2x, Microchip's new programmable gain amplifier family, which enables users to have digital control of the analog domain, with the integration of an amplifier, MUX, and gain control selected via a SPITM bus.

Other topics include various connectivity solutions; the importance of migration and compatibility in PIC microcontrollers from simple, mechatronic to complex applications; and the Company's development systems, such as the MPLAB® Integrated Development Environment, programming and debugging tools like the PICkitTM 1 programmer, and the MPLAB In-Circuit Debugger.

Microchip's offers risk-free product development, lower total system cost, faster time to market, dependable delivery and quality and outstanding support through all phases of customer's product life cycle.

The seminars are ideal for designers who are looking for solutions to embedded control challenges and are not yet familiar with Microchip's product offerings. Design engineers and engineering managers will benefit from the seminars by learning about solutions and interfacing with the Microchip staff familiar with embedded design.

Registration is available today, however space is limited. More information regarding the Embedded Systems Seminars, including sites and corresponding dates, can be found at the company's Web site www.microchip.com/seminars.
