Microchip’s Worldwide MASTERs ConferenceMicrochip Technology Inc.'s 17th annual Worldwide MASTERs Conference will be held at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, Arizona, with the Main Conference taking place from August 21-24, and a Pre-Conference on August 19 and 20, 2013.
The MASTERs Conference 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 what the company says is the 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.
More than 100 classes are being offered—46 of which are new this year. In addition to lecture-based classes, there are 43 hands-on classes that enable attendees to learn more about specific applications by using development tools and writing code in the classrooms. 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.
