Microchip Technology announced it has opened registration for online courses that educate engineers about diverse embedded design topics ranging from C programming to cryptography and help them to use its products most effectively. Microchip University courses offer best practices for implementing a wide variety of systems such as the Internet of Things (IoT), communication protocols like Bluetooth, Universal Serial Bus (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, to the industry’s most comprehensive 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 get the most out of our products and development tools. We have been committed to giving our customers the highest-quality training on our products and now we make it even more accessible for engineers with all levels of experience.”
Until last year, Microchip had offered exclusively in-person training during annual conferences and Microchip University has now moved this curriculum online. Engineers learn how to use 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 best practices 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.
