Hallo
ich arbeite gerne mit dem PIC- einfache Instruktionen
leicht durchschaubar-es gibt zwar bei manchen PICs
Schwachstellen die man kennen muss.
Für komplexere Anwendung gibt es C als Hochsprache

MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY ANNOUNCES
THIRD QUARTER FISCAL 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Microchip consolidated net sales of $367.8 million
On a GAAP basis:
Gross margin of 58.8%; operating income of 31.9%; net income from continuing operations of $101.9 million and 27.7% of Sales; EPS from continuing operations of 52 cents per diluted share. There was no published First Call estimate for GAAP EPS.
On a non-GAAP basis:
Gross margin of 59.8%; operating income of 35.6%; net income from continuing operations of $113.8 million and 30.9% of sales; EPS from continuing operations of 58 cents per diluted share. The First Call published estimate was 57 cents for non-GAAP EPS.
Record net sales for technology licensing division of $19.1 million
Record net sales of 32-bit microcontrollers
Development tool shipments of 40,303


CHANDLER, Arizona – January 27, 2011 – (NASDAQ: MCHP) – Microchip Technology Incorporated, a leading provider of microcontroller, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today reported results for the three months ended December 31, 2010 as summarized in the following table:


Consolidated net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were $367.8 million, down 3.8% sequentially from net sales of $382.3 million in the immediately preceding quarter, and up 47.1% from net sales of $250.1 million in the prior year’s third quarter. GAAP net income from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was $101.9 million, or 52 cents per diluted share, down 2.7% from GAAP net income from continuing operations of $104.7 million, or 55 cents per diluted share, in the immediately preceding quarter, and up 46.9% from GAAP net income of $69.4 million, or 37 cents per diluted share, in the prior year’s third quarter. Due to the appreciation in the price of our common stock in the December 2010 quarter, the dilutive share count reflects the effect of our convertible debentures, with the effect of an additional 4.4 million shares sequentially, which negatively impacted our GAAP diluted earnings per share by about 1.2 cents.

Consolidated non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was $113.8 million, or 58 cents per diluted share, down 4.9% from consolidated non-GAAP net income from continuing operations of $119.6 million, or 63 cents per diluted share, in the immediately preceding quarter, and up 62.2% from consolidated non-GAAP net income of $70.1 million, or 38 cents per diluted share, in the prior year’s third quarter. Due to the appreciation in the price of our common stock in the December 2010 quarter, the dilutive share count reflects the effect of our convertible debentures, with the effect of an additional 4.4 million shares sequentially, which negatively impacted our non-GAAP diluted earnings per share by about 1.3 cents. For the third fiscal quarter of both fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2011, our consolidated non-GAAP results exclude the effect of share-based compensation, expenses related to our acquisition activities (including intangible asset amortization, inventory valuation costs, severance costs and legal and other administrative expenses associated with acquisitions), the tax benefit from tax audit settlements and tax law changes and non-cash interest expense on our convertible debentures. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP and GAAP results is included in this press release.

Microchip announced on November 4, 2010 that its Board of Directors accelerated the March 2011 quarterly cash dividend payment on its common stock of 34.5 cents per share into the December 31, 2010 quarter. Microchip’s next dividend payment will be in June of 2011. Microchip initiated quarterly cash dividend payments in the third quarter of fiscal 2003.

“Microchip’s performance in the December 2010 quarter exceeded our expectations. Net sales, gross margins, operating income and earnings per share were better than the mid-point of our guidance provided on November 30, 2010,” said Steve Sanghi, President and CEO. “The gross margin upside was driven by ongoing cost reductions in our manufacturing processes, a favorable product mix and continued improvements in the product lines we acquired from SST. Operating expenses continue to be well managed and came in at the mid-point of our guidance at 24.1% of sales on a non-GAAP basis in the December quarter.”

Mr. Sanghi added, “The SST acquisition has done exceptionally well for Microchip. The technology licensing business produced an all-time record high in revenue of $19.1 million, up 10.3% sequentially. Additionally, in the December quarter we continued to make outstanding progress in improving the operating models for the SuperFlash Memory division and the RF division through our hard work in partnering with customers, targeting markets, focusing on pricing, improving manufacturing costs and incorporating these divisions into Microchip’s business structure. We believe there are significant improvements ahead of us for the gross margins of these divisions and we are well on our way to achieving 32 cents of non-GAAP earnings per share from the SST acquisition in fiscal 2011 and 40 cents in fiscal 2012.”

“Our microcontroller business performed better than we expected in the December quarter with net sales only down 2.2% on a sequential basis and up 24% from the year ago quarter. We shipped our 9 billionth cumulative microcontroller in December and finished calendar 2010 shipping a record 1.3 billion microcontrollers. For calendar 2010 our microcontroller revenue was up 42.4% from the calendar 2009 levels,” said Ganesh Moorthy, Chief Operating Officer. “Our 32-bit microcontroller line, which took a pause in the September quarter, had a strong quarter of revenue growth and was up 45% sequentially, achieving a new record. For calendar 2010, net sales for our 16-bit microcontroller business was up 113.6% and our 32-bit microcontroller business was up 260%. We believe we gained significant market share in all three microcontroller segments in calendar 2010.”

Eric Bjornholt, Microchip’s Chief Financial Officer, said, “Microchip’s inventory position improved significantly in the December quarter. Inventory on Microchip’s balance sheet increased to $177.7 million, representing 107 days of inventory and a sequential increase of 10 days. We continue to make progress in moving towards our internal target of 115 days of inventory which will allow us to improve our lead times to levels in line with our historical performance and appropriately support our customers. Inventory days in the distribution channel grew by three days.”

Mr. Bjornholt continued, “Microchip’s net cash generation in the December quarter was $133.5 million prior to making the two dividend payments, which totaled $129.4 million. We ended the December 2010 quarter with $1.57 billion of cash and investments and we expect our cash generation in the March 2011 quarter to continue to be strong.”

Mr. Sanghi added, “Looking back at calendar year 2010, Microchip had one of its best growth years ever with over 64% revenue growth, compared to calendar year 2009. As we enter calendar 2011, we believe we are exceptionally well-positioned for continued growth in all of our product lines. The March quarter will be seasonally impacted by the Lunar New Year holidays in Asia. Taking all of these factors into consideration we expect net sales to be flat to up 3% sequentially.”

Microchip develops digitally controlled solar microinverter reference design
27 September 2010 | By Syanne Olson | News > Power Generation


Microchip Technology publicized its fully digitally controlled grid-connected solar micro inverter reference design, which features an enhanced, high efficiency topology. According to the company, peak efficiency of 95% was reached with maximum power point tracking of 99.5% and nighttime power consumption less than 1W.

“This reference design will help the solar power industry to quickly improve its inverter technology, through the use of more flexible and efficient digital power conversion techniques,” said Sumit Mitra, vice president of Microchip’s high performance microcontroller division. “The transition to digital power will enable solar energy conversion to be maximized, while reducing the installation and overall costs of solar systems.”

The reference design is noted to work with any PV panel that provides a maximum 220W output and comes in two separate versions that support either 110V or 220V power grids. Both versions use one dsPIC33 GS digital power DSC.
