Microchip has been recognised by several international publications for product and organisational leadership.

Microchip has been recognised by several international publications for product and organisational leadership.

The company was named a finalist in the 'Large Company of the Year' category of EE Times' fourth Annual Creativity in Electronics, or ACE, Awards. Companies are selected by the ACE judges for demonstrating leadership and innovation, and shaping the world in which we live with the electronics industry's most dynamic business practices and breakthrough technologies.

The editors of EDN magazine selected Microchip's Graphics Software Library - a free application designed for adding graphics displays to embedded designs based on the company's 16- and 32-bit PIC microcontrollers - as a finalist in the Software category of their 2007 EDN Innovation Awards.

Portable Design chose the PIC32 as a winner in the 'Processors ICs' category for the magazine's '2008 Editor's Choice Awards'. With these annual awards, the magazine recognises innovative electronic components that make possible the design of leading-edge portable products.

Microchip's dsPIC33F digital signal controllers were selected by the editors of the ENGenius Network as a recipient of their 2007 'Product of the Year' awards in the 'Best Value in Embedded DSP' category, from among the hundreds of products they reviewed in 2007. The editors believe that the products selected will make significant bottom-line numbers for the companies involved, because of their strong technical merit, design innovation and marketability.

Germany's E&E magazine selected the PIC18F97J60 8-bit Ethernet microcontrollers for their 'E&E Best Product Guide 2007,' in the 'Microcontroller & Processors' category. Finalist products were those that received the most clicks from readers on the E&E website, from October 2006 to September 2007. Following the publication of the top 10 products from each category in a special supplement, winners were selected through reader votes.

Electronic Design & Application World - Nikkei Electronics China honoured Microchip with two awards at the recent Green Power Forum in Beijing. The MCP140X MOSFET drivers won the 'Best Application Award in Power Components,' and the MCP73811/2 charge management controllers won the 'Best Application Award in Battery.'

Finally, Germany's ELEKTRONIK magazine named Microchip's PIC32 32-bit microcontroller family one of its 'Best Products of the Year' in the 'Active Components' category. The PIC32 was nominated by ELEKTRONIK's editorial staff and elected by its readership, receiving 8000 reader votes in all.
