Difference Between microchipDIRECT Programming Center and QTP/SQTP

The microchipDIRECT Programming Center uses blank finished goods and programs the parts based on your program requirement. You can perform all programming center functions. The programming center has no quantity restrictions.

The QTP/SQTP process customizes a unique part number for you. You must engage with your local Microchip Sales Office in order to define the QTP/SQTP requirements. The QTP/SQTP does have order minimums. SQTP means that there can be incremental numbers programmed into the on-chip flash, for instance, MAC addresses.
