The Team of profichip GmbH is developing fieldbus ASICs since 1998. Besides the ASICs for PLC-systems´ industrial communication, the initial PROFIBUS Slave Controller VPC3+ was the first release in 1999. After the successful launch, profichip extended the range of compatible PROFIBUS Slave ASICs by the Lean Slave VPCLS in 2000. Since then, profichip continuously improves available PROFIBUS features in their ASICs. Proof for the innovative power of profichip was the realisation of SPEED7 – the High Performance PLC in silicon. Programmable in STEP7® language, SPEED7 marks a substantial progress in the evolution of PLC.

Profichip philosophy exceeds the ordinary developing and sales of ASICs by translation of customers´ ideas into solutions for their requirements. Profichip creates the missing link. The result is automation in silicon for customers throughout the world.
