We are delighted to be able to report that SPS has yet again been awarded the status of Premier Design Partner by Microchip Technology. We use their parts (mainly 16 bit dsPICs + analogue parts) on the majority of the work we carry out due to the excellent performance, choice, cost and availability of their parts. Being a Premium Partner also means we get priority technical support and advance notification of new parts and technology. Both of these things are very important to provide the best possible service to our customers. Not wishing to be big headed, but SPS is the only Premier Design Partner with Motor Control Expertise in Europe and the only one worldwide with this ranking for both Motor Control and Functional Safety.
