We all know about Microchip's picks.  If you've been in the industry for a while you may have seen the original pick 116 from the eighties, the giant 8 bit devices in a big dip package with a whopping 512 bytes of ram and a datasheet that politely asks you to fax in any comments or suggestions.  Now the new 8 bit microcontrollers from Microchip have almost 4,000 bytes of flash memory and come in packages smaller than some surface mount resistors.  Mircrochip is more than just microcontrollers, they have a strong history of development, support, and continued innovation both organically and through acquisitions.  SST was coming out with amazing things when Microchip acquired them in 2010 and the SST26VFO16B that came out earlier this year is the fastest serial flash in the market with 3x under 5 nanoseconds.  Microchips extensive portfolio covers the entire board now from data acquisition memory, from sensors to logic, from connectors to conductivity.  Now Microchip expands their portfolio again with the acquisition of Micrel.  Not only does this include the robust power solutions and time capabilities we associate with Micrel, but think about what this does for the combined analog offering now all available from a single supplier.
