Microchip Technology Incorporated Development Tool Warranty

Microchip warrants that the development tools it developed (“Microchip Development Tools”) (i) are free from defects in material and workmanship and (ii) when properly installed and used, will execute their programmed instructions, for 1 year (90 days for those Microchip Development Tools Microchip normally sells for USD$500 or less, excluding promotional pricing) from the delivery date. Upon Microchip’s confirmation that the claimed deficiency is present and not attributable to a “Disqualifying Event” (see below) or software supplied or performed by anyone other than Microchip, interfacing, or improper settings, Microchip will, at its option, repair or replace a Microchip Development Tool that proves to be defective within the warranty period.

If a defective Microchip Development Tool is no longer in production and deemed irreparable, Microchip will, at its option, replace it with a substantially equivalent product (the person or entity that purchases the Microchip Development Tool from Microchip (“you”) will be responsible for shipping and handling charges) or provide information on available third party development tools.

MICROCHIP DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE OPERATION OF A DEVELOPMENT TOOL, ITS FIRMWARE, OR SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

For warranty service, the Microchip Development Tool must be returned to Microchip. You will pay all shipping and other charges and assessments for its return.

WARRANTY EXCLUSIONS

The foregoing warranty does not apply in cases where Microchip Development Tools have suffered misuse, abuse, neglect, alteration, accident, mishandling, repair, operation outside the associated environmental specifications, improper installation, improper testing, or the like after shipment (collectively, a “Disqualifying Event”). Additional exclusions and conditions relating to the foregoing warranty are set forth in Microchip’s Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale.
