Microchip delivers 12 billionth PIC MCU to Nidec

USA: Microchip Technology Inc. announced the shipment of its 12 billionth PIC microcontroller (MCU) to the Nidec Corp.—a preeminent global supplier of precision motors, based in Japan. Microchip delivered this 12 billionth MCU approximately 10 months after delivering its 11 billionth.

The announcement demonstrates the industry’s continued acceptance of Microchip’s 8-, 16- and 32-bit PIC microcontrollers as the high-performance, low-power, cost-effective solution for embedded-control designs.

“The time between each of our 1 billionth shipments continues to accelerate, in the face of Microchip’s increasing MCU market share, and shipping our 12 billionth to a long-term customer like Nidec makes this achievement particularly gratifying,” said Microchip’s president and CEO Steve Sanghi. “Motor control has always been one of our strengths, and the fact that such an esteemed global leader in motor manufacturing has continued using our PIC MCUs for so long is a testament to that strength.”
