RS to host Microchip seminars on controlling the cost of electronics design

Sessions will focus on practical information and advice on how to reduce development time, the re-use of software and tools, and how to design up or down as requirements change. Microchip”s staff will lead discussions and demonstrations on how to apply these principles to a project design. Other topics will include the latest technologies in low power, human interface and connectivity.

Dates and locations:

May 8th – Milan, Italy

May 10th – Rome, Italy

May 15th – Corby, UK

May 17th – Oxford, UK

June 7th – Paris, France

The registration fee for each one-day seminar is €50, with attendees receiving a free PICkit 3 programmer and development board. The PICkit 3 allows debugging and programming of Microchip’s PIC and dsPIC Flash microcontrollers using the powerful graphical user interface of the MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

Fred Knowles, Head of Product Management, Electronics at RS Components said, “Today’s engineers are under increasing pressure to complete their designs quickly while keeping costs to a minimum to remain competitive. These seminars have been developed in conjunction with Microchip to bring engineers together with technical experts from a leading technology provider to help them in their task of creating successful and cost-efficient designs.”

Commenting Mike McGlade, Sales Channel Manager, Catalogue & Retail at Microchip, said: “A key element in our mission is enabling engineers to maximise the innovation inherent in their designs, while also allowing them to meet increasing time-to-market demands and within strict cost constraints. One of the fundamental ways in which we can realise this ambition, and also reach out to designers in a wide range of important markets, is to work closely with partners such as RS Components.”
