19 September 2013 Bangalore, India [NASDAQ: MCHP] — Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, is now accepting registrations for its annual India MASTERs Conferences. The first conference will take place on 21-22 November in Pune, followed by Bangalore on 17-18 December. To register online or find out more about these events, visithttp://www.microchip.com/get/EHX6.
The MASTERs Conferences are valuable resources for designing with Microchip’s products that provide design engineers across the world 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 design partners.
To meet the growing needs of software and hardware design engineers and engineering managers, the range of classes being offered is broader than ever before. Across the two conferences, 44 classes will be conducted, 36 of which are new this year. In addition to lecture-based classes, there are 20 ‘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.
MASTERs classes cover the gamut of electronic-engineering topics, including connectivity sessions on Ethernet, TCP/IP, USB, CAN and wireless (e.g., ZigBee® and Wi-Fi®), graphics and capacitive-touch interface development, intelligent power supplies, firmware development, motor control, selecting op amps for sensor applications, using an RTOS, DSP designs, and transmitting wireless audio using Bluetooth®.
“Technical training courses specifically designed for embedded systems engineers are crucial to reducing development time,” said Ramesh Babu, Microchip’s sales manager in India. “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 India MASTERs Conferences are offered with these goals in mind.”
Additional activities include networking sessions between third-party partners and attendees to discuss relevant design topics, and meeting with third-party development tool experts. The “Ask the Experts” program allows attendees to ask Microchip engineers about design and development questions relating to any of Microchip’s products. The “Third Party Bazaar” also showcases development tools that help decrease development time when using Microchip products. These conferences also offer attendees exclusive discounts of 40% off on selected development tools.
Registration and pricing information
Entry to the MASTERs Conference courses, all class materials and meals are included in the Conference attendance fee of Rs. 7,000. The final registration deadline is 8 November for the Pune event and 3 December for the Bangalore event.
