PROFIBUS DP Slave Controller with serial Interface

Profichip´s VPC3+S is a communication chip with an 8 Bit Parallel, SPI, or I2C Microprocessor interface for intelligent PROFIBUS slave applications. The VPC3+S handles message and address identification, data security sequences, and protocol processing for PROFIBUS-DP.

In addition, the acyclic communication and alarm messages, described in DP-V1 extension, are supported. Slave-to-slave communication Data eXchange Broadcast (DXB) and the Isochronous Mode (IsoM), described in DP-V2 extension are also provided. Automatic recognition and support of data transmission rates up to 12 Mbit/s, the integration of the complete PROFIBUS-DP protocol, 4 KByte communication RAM, and the flexible processor interface are features to create state-of-the-art PROFIBUS slave applications.
