Where can I get the latest on Microchip Products? Seems like their webpage
is way outdated. Just be placing an order with my supplier today I found
out:
That 12Cxxx is available in JW package
12C518 and 12C519 are eeprom devices
16C54 now got a B version (16C54B). So whats new about it?

Hmmm, maybe I should send this to the webmaster.

Try getting on their mailing list.  They put out a new product brief once per
quarter.  They also have a new version of their CD with updated info.  The
best way is to contact the closest sales office in your area.  I haven't had
much luck with the factory.

I have already twice attempted to let the webmaster know that no
pages below the home page are viewable with the Opera browser
due to a HTML incompatibility with their comments. I didn't even
get a reply back and the web pages still don't work. I am not sure
that they even have a webmaster, who ever designed the web
pages is probably long gone, making modifications and updating
very difficult.

Maybe he is just not interested (?)
I told him the same a half year or so ago, and he responded something like
most people use Nestcape, and then Explorer.

For us who have found the fastet, most user frieendly, and most elegant
browser, he had not much interest, as we can download the NS and MSIE for
free...

I have checked Mchip pages with different HTML verifiers and some report no
errors, other report a lot of inconsistencies.

As Opera is based on the widely accepted standard, it looks like Mchip home
pages are dependant on Netscape or Microsoft own home-brew dialects.

For those who havent got it yet, have a look at:

Err... i was to fast; just tested:
I have to correct this to that Mchip pages actually works using Opera 3.50
beta 9 (well the text is to much to the right but it is just to resize the
window)

    Howdy,

    Actually we have received this message and have discussed it
    extensively among those of us that manage the web site.

    I have installed Opera, have connected to our site, and have seen
    exactly the problem you have described.  The message sent to us
    indicated that the user had contacted Opera Software and that Opera
    had reviewed our site.  Apparently Opera feels our HTML code comments
    are nonstandard, but this is not the case.  Furthermore, the code
    passes compatibility tests on two separate verification systems.

    We'll keep digging into it and try to fix it.  I kind of liked the
    Opera browser myself, once I tried it.

    Apologies for not responding to your message. We receive hundreds a
    week and cannot possibly answer them all. Instead, we strive to fix
    the problems reported and respond when something more than that is
    required.

    As to your last concern, the webmaster is, in fact, alive and well.

    regards,

    Dan Matthews and Dave Friedel

    P.S. If you like, feel free to pass this along to any others that
    shared this concern.
