Microchip University Opens Online Courses for Embedded Control Engineers

Microchip Technology Inc. has opened registration for web based classes that educate engineers about diverse embedded design topics which range from C programming to cryptography and enable them to use its products most effectively. Microchip University courses offer best practices for utilizing a multitude of systems such as the Internet of Things (IoT), communication protocols like Bluetooth, Hardware (USB) and Controller Area Network (CAN), plus bootloaders and high-speed data analysis using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).

“Our customers now have access anytime, anywhere, towards the industry's very indepth range of high-quality, general embedded system control design courses,” said Ken Pye, Microchip's vice president of worldwide applications. “These free courses teach engineers how to bring new designs to market more quickly and efficiently and obtain the most out of our products and development tools. We have been committed to giving our customers the highest-quality training on our products for 25 years, and now we make it even more accessible for engineers with all amounts of experience.”

Until last year Microchip had offered exclusively in-person training during annual conferences it launched in 1997. Microchip University moves this curriculum online. Engineers learn to make use of the company's MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) and Core Independent Peripherals (CIP), as well as its solutions for creating embedded Linux applications. The rapidly expanding course offering covers guidelines in motor control, battery charging fundamentals, power supply, security, analog system design, and more. Microchip University courses also span the full range of Microchip products.
