Avnet, Microchip Host Tech Training

PHOENIX — Avnet Memec Americas, a division of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), announces the launch of a cooperative effort with Microchip to introduce customers to innovative solutions for motor control design. Customers have the option to either request an on-site On-Ramp Technical Session™ or attend a Regional Training Center (RTC) class to learn about the motor control techniques available from Microchip.

The On-Ramp Technical Session is comprised of a one-hour, live technical presentation and motor control demonstration. The presentation will include a broad introduction to Microchip’s entire motor control portfolio, followed by short in-depth technical sessions catering to a customer’s specific motor control interests (e.g., brush, stepper, BLDC or ACIM). These technical sessions are available throughout North America and can be requested free of charge at www.em.avnet.com/microchiponramps.

The Microchip RTC classes cover two different topics on motor control innovation. These two-day technical sessions are available in multiple locations throughout North America beginning December 8, 2010. Engineers are invited to attend both the “Overview of Intelligent Motor Control” and the hands-on “BLDC Control Techniques” classes to gain a greater understanding of motor types, ways to modify control algorithms and motor interface design. Registration is open now at www.microchip.com/RTC.

“As technology continues to evolve, we’ve seen a definitive rise in the demand for, and complexity of, motor control technology,” said Phil Sansone, senior vice-president Avnet Memec Americas. “By teaming up with Microchip, Avnet gives our customers the opportunity to learn theory and application techniques for motor control – making it easier to implement into even the most complex designs.”
