Several years in a row scientists from Dumont d'Urville Station in Antarctica are using mikroElektronika boards in their projects. They replaced EasyPIC5 with EasyPIC v7 in January.
Dumont d'Urville Station in Antarctica hosts French Scientific research base in Adélie Land. Expedition name for this year is TA62 - 62 because 2012 is the 62th winter at the base. Each year for almost 5 years they buy a new set of equippment from mikroElektronika, including compilers, development board, accessory boards. Our friend and active community member Alain Pierre sent us an E-mail with photos taken by one of the scientists there. You can see newly arrived package containing EasyPIC v7.
Photos are simply gorgeous. It's now a polar day at South Pole which lasts for 6 months. It's like having romantic sunset for half a year. Anyway, we are happy to see the big leap forward in our packaging when we compare the photo from South Pole sent to us by Alain some 4 years ago. Penguins seem to find it quite interesting, though :)
