About This Site

This site was developed and is maintained by the engineers of the Microchip Technology Technical Training Group, with contributions from engineers throughout the company. While this is an official Microchip site, it is operated independently from the main corporate site.

The audacious goal of this site is to answer all the common questions about our products that don't require interaction with an Applications Engineer. Due to the size of our product line and the limited but growing number of people contributing content, we don't have all the answers yet. However, we will strive to continuously add content that will help you shorten the learning curve, reduce costs, reduce risk and get your designs to market faster.
