Today we want to remind ourselves of how important the community is to us as a company and to show you some interesting numbers that we should all be proud of.
On October 7th 2011, we have released the new version of our most popular product - EasyPIC v7. A little bit over a year later, it became the number one PIC development tool to thousands of engineers, students, professionals and hobbyists. It is rated with five stars in reviews of several magazines, including Elektor and Sillicon Chip. There are several community reviews as well, like this one from Garage Tech. In majority of countries it's the number one product on Google organic search results. Try it our for yourself. Just type "PIC Development Board" and hit the enter key.
