Designers have less than four months left to enter the 2020 Get Launched program from Microchip Technology and Crowd Supply, sponsored by Mouser Electronics. It is a start-up and incubator support program that assists companies to achieve rapid time-to-production and time-to-market by utilising Microchip’s technical expertise to guide throughout the design process. The global electronics design program welcomes designers to submit projects that uniquely offer one or more components from Microchip. The program is a partnership between Mouser, Microchip, and Crowd Supply, and entries will be promoted over all three channels.
Designers can enter the program by submitting their project proposals through the form on the Crowd Supply website. Eligibility is decided on a case-by-case basis by the organisers, and entrants can create their 30-day Crowd Supply campaign anytime throughout 2020.
All successful entries will get a support package including reduced-price parts for the initial production run, technical and marketing review consultations, and a decreased Crowd Supply campaign fee, as well as one of several Microchip development boards, including a Microchip Curiosity PIC32MZ EF development board, Microchip AVR-IoT WA development board, and Microchip PIC-IoT WA development board.
