Microchip puts its courses on-line

Built around company products and under the umbrella of ‘Microchip University’, the courses and webcasts cover a range “diverse embedded design topics ranging from C programming to cryptography”, said the company. “Courses offer best practices for implementing a wide variety of systems such as the IoT, communication protocols like Bluetooth, USB and CAN, plus bootloaders and high-speed data analysis using FPGAs.”

For example, there are so far three courses in the embedded linux section:

  • Introduction – Exploring embedded Linux on the ATSAMA5D27-SOM1-EK (96 minutes)
  • Building your Linux development system (70 minutes)
  • Linux Build Systems – Creating your first embedded Linux system with Buildroot (40 minutes)

Access to resources is free, although registration is required.

“These free courses teach engineers how to get the most out of our products and development tools,” said v-p of applications Ken Pye. “We have been committed to giving our customers the highest-quality training on our products for 25 years, and now we make it even more accessible for engineers with all levels of experience.”

From 1997 until last year Microchip offered in-person training during annual conferences. Microchip University moves this curriculum online.

Microchip University has four language choices:

  • English
  • Traditional Chinese
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Korean
