Registration Opens for Microchip's 18th Annual Worldwide MASTERs Conference; Premiere Technical Training Event for Embedded-Control Engineers
CHANDLER, Ariz. --(Business Wire)--
Microchip Technology (News - Alert) Inc. [NASDAQ: MCHP], a leading
provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP
solutions, today announced it is accepting registrations for its 18th
annual Worldwide MASTERs
Conference at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, Arizona,
with the Main Conference taking
place from August 20-23, and a Pre-Conference
on August 18-19, 2014.
The MASTERs Conference is a valuable resource for designing with
Microchip's products that provides design engineers with an annual forum
for sharing and exchanging technical information on the Company's 8-,
16- and 32-bit PIC® microcontrollers, high-performance analog
and interface solutions, dsPIC® digital signal controllers,
wireless and mTouch™ sensing solutions, memory products, and MPLAB®
development systems-including the industry's only singular IDE to
support an entire 8-, 16- and 32-bit microcontroller portfolio.
MASTERs is an in-depth, bi-directional exchange of technical information
between Microchip subject-matter experts and the Company's technical
partners, including customers, third parties, distributor FAEs and
There is a broad range of class offerings for 2014, to meet the growing
needs of software and hardware design engineers and engineering
managers, with more than 100 classes being offered-39 of which are new
this year. In addition to lecture-based classes, there are 47 'hands-on'
classes that enable attendees to learn more about specific applications
by using development tools and writing code in the classrooms. Classes
are available for engineers with advanced experience or little knowledge
in the concepts and basics of the technology being discussed.
Based on its overwhelming success at previous MASTERs, Microchip is
again offering a two-day Pre-Conference for those who wish to attend as
many classes as possible during the week. These classes are also
designed for beginner through advanced attendees. For example,
"Introduction to Embedded Programming Using C" is a two-day, 16-hour,
step-by-step crash course in C, with practical hands-on exercises.
MASTERs classes cover the gamut of electronic-engineering topics,
including connectivity sessions on Ethernet, TCP/IP, USB, CAN and
wireless (e.g., ZigBee (News - Alert)® and Wi-Fireg;), graphics and
capacitive-touch interface development, intelligent power supplies,
firmware development, motor control, selecting op amps for sensor
applications, using an RTOS, DSP and transmitting wireless audio using
"Technical training courses specifically designed for embedded systems
engineers are crucial to reducing development time," said Ken Pye,
Microchip's vice president of worldwide applications. "It is critical
that embedded engineers are trained in all aspects of the environments
in which they work, and that they walk away with the valuable knowledge
needed to solve today's most challenging design issues. Our annual
series of global MASTERs Conferences are offered with these goals in
Additional activities include networking sessions between third-party
partners and attendees to discuss relevant design topics, meeting with
third-party development tool experts and a simulated wafer fab plant
tour. Extracurricular events include a robot race, a Texas Hold-em card
tournament, a FIRST® robotics exhibition match,
and sports-bar and video games that are suitable for the whole family.
