Microchip Technology Inc. today announced that it sold its one millionth development tool during last week’s 14th annual Worldwide MASTERs Conference - the premier technical training event for embedded-control engineers held in Phoenix, Ariz. To celebrate this milestone, Microchip honored Mike Nicholson, Engineering Manager from Price Electronics in Winnipeg, Canada, as the recipient of its one millionth tool.

“We’ve been using Microchip development tools and PIC® microcontrollers since 1999,” Nicholson said. “We fell in love with Microchip’s development tools and support, and a lot of their application notes have really helped us with our designs.”  Nicholson added, “We’ve learned a ton over the last three days at the MASTERs Conference.  It’s great to have the 1 millionth development tool in hand, and we look forward to using it.”
