Microchip Technology - Summer School 2002

28 August 2002 News

The 1st 'Microchip Summer School' will be held on 12 and 13 September 2002 at Birchwood Executive Hotel located near Johannesburg International Airport. This summer school aims to become a regular exchange of technical information between Microchip Technology and its customers, consultants, third parties and distributors.

Not a typical product seminar, says organiser Willem Hijbeek of Tempe Technologies, the intention is to 'break new ground' and to set a precedent for future technical seminars in SA. He has invited three highly experienced microchip engineers to SA to present the classes. They are: Martin Burghardt (field applications manager - Central Europe); Dieter Peter (senior field applications engineer - Central Europe); and Alexander Bakhsh (field applications engineer, Analog - Central Europe).

Due to the sheer volume of information to be exchanged with customers, three different classes will be presented simultaneously. The classes that delegates choose to attend will be based on a selection from the 13 classes offered.

The seminar will help one find out what new Microchip products are in the pipeline, which applications they support and how to incorporate them into one's application design. Also, one can learn tips and tricks and reduce development time using the latest Microchip development tools for PICmicro MCUs, analog and interface devices, and the newest dsPIC and rfPIC devices.

Space is limited to allow ample instructor/attendee interaction so early registration is essential to guarantee a seat. Delegates will also receive a CD containing the course material covered during the technical exchange.

A registration form can be downloaded from www.avnet.co.za or www.unique.za.memec.com or contact Willem Hijbeek or Brett Klette of Tempe Technologies, 011 452 0530, willem.hijbeek@saiee.org.za, or Luci Perrow of Avnet Kopp, 011 809 6233, or Mark Smith of Memec SA, 021 674 4103.
