The five-year agreement enables Microchip customers to more readily seek and engage DeviceLab's highly qualified support for the design of medical products and equipment that use PIC(r) microcontrollers and dsPIC(r) digital signal controllers.
Microchip's world-class development tools provide powerful, affordable solutions for application development. Compilers, assemblers, programmers, simulators, and in-circuit emulators are available components of Microchip's MPLAB(r) Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
"Microchip's products and experience have helped hundreds of the world's top medical device companies take their ideas from future vision to market reality, and it is our privilege to continue to be part of that tradition," said DeviceLab founder and CEO Dac Vu.
Vu said that DeviceLab has collaborated on nearly a dozen electronic medical product design projects with Microchip in recent years. Further, he said that his technical staff's proven depth of knowledge of Microchip's products helped facilitate the partnership agreement.
