You are almost certainly using a Microchip component in the process of reading this text. They make everything from microcontrollers and EEPROM, to USB controllers and voltage regulators. Microchip really is nearly everywhere, and now they are at Teardown, too! As a sponsor, Microchip is helping make Teardown possible.
We're also proud to be partnering with Microchip to bring you the Microchip Get Launched 2019 design competition. Through Get Launched, eligible Crowd Supply projects using Microchip parts have the opportunity to amplify their success with a support package that includes heavily discounted components, promotion through Microchip and its partners, cash awards, and more. The design competition will run throughout 2019 and have a mid-year showcase during Teardown.
