Welcome To MASTERs 2018

Each time you start a new embedded design project you are faced with new technologies, new products and new ideas. Even simple designs are being enhanced with communication such as USB, Ethernet and wireless technologies. Software techniques are evolving and the use of IDEs and compilers are becoming commonplace in embedded designs. How can you quickly find what new products are available and how they can be used to make your design easier to manage? How can you get up to speed as quickly as possible?

Join us at Microchip’s 2018 MASTERs Conference and find the design help and the answers you’ve been looking for. The technical training classes offered at MASTERs are created for engineers, presented by engineers and provide more than 100 different topics to choose from. Whether your training needs are basic, intermediate or advanced, they will be met. Each year for the past 18 years, the MASTERs Conference has grown and developed to offer technical classes to engineers from around the globe, many of whom are repeat attendees.
