If so, you could be eligible to enter the Microchip Get Launched electronics design program! We make great electronic components and we’re looking for equally great examples of how they’re enabling new, innovative products in the real world.
While designing, funding, manufacturing, and shipping a new product to happy customers is a reward unto itself, it can’t hurt to have some extra incentives along the way. Microchip is partnering with Mouser Electronics and Crowd Supply to offer participants a wide array of support.
To be eligible to enter this design program, your project must:
Projects are free to showcase any components in the Microchip family. Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis and solely at the discretion of Microchip and Crowd Supply.
The first step is to apply to launch your project with Crowd Supply and mention that you’re interested in Microchip Get Launched.
