Dear HI-TECH Customer,
We are pleased to inform you that HI-TECH Software has joined Microchip Technology as a fully owned subsidiary! This is the natural progression of our long-standing, friendly relationship.
In order to provide the best possible products for Microchip microcontrollers and digital signal controllers, we will focus our energies exclusively on Microchip-related products. Of course, support agreements for other products will be honored for the duration of those agreements.
If you already own a HI-TECH C compiler for any of the Microchip products, you can look forward to an even higher level of performance and responsiveness. Our teams are joining forces to provide you with the very best tools for your 8-, 16- and 32-bit PIC(R) microcontroller and dsPIC(R) digital signal controller development.
From now until September 30, 2009, Microchip is offering a 20% discount on Microchip development tools for HI-TECH customers through http://www.microchipdirect.com, and a 50% exchange discount to owners of HI-TECH compilers for non-Microchip products. Customers should contact HI-TECH for details.

This is not good news if you don't currently own a HI-TECH compiler, but maybe looking to use it with current PSoC range.
I hope we can continue to activate the compiler to support our product into the future if my computer ever needs to be rebuilt!
