Congratulations to Microchip, who last night was named as the winner in the Microcontroller category of EDN’s 19th Annual Innovation Awards for their PIC32 family. I first worked with the MIPS architecture just over 15 years ago, and to see the products that can be created with combination of this core coupled with Microchip’s on-chip peripherals, development tools and support makes me realise the astounding rate of change and continuous improvement in our industry.
