VPC3+S Samples available now

(PresseBox) ( Herzogenaurach, )
profichip GmbH, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions for industrial control and communication, today announced the smallest PROFIBUS-DP Slave ASIC VPC3+S available in BGA48 package. This tiny, low-power ASIC features an additional serial interface (SPI or I2C), an integrated hardware PLL for Isochronous Bus Mode and is function compatible to the SPC3 (from Siemens) and the more popular VPC3+C (from profichip).

"Manufacturers of fieldbus products for PROFIBUS communication are constantly pressured to provide more compact and cost effective solutions" said Stefan Ruebesam, Technical Director of profichip, "our brand new VPC3+S addresses these requirements - all in a miniature BGA-package 6x8mm - and allows also to use smaller and cheaper microcontrollers." Modern processors with huge on-board memories and low pin count often do not provide a dedicated parallel interface but communicate via SPI or I2C with the peripheral devices.

Example applications: encoders, gateways, sensors, frequency-converters, etc.

Development Support

For designers wanting to evaluate the new VPC3+S in their applications, profichip GmbH offers a new Evaluation Board (order-code PA006301) along with an extended software stack.

Pricing and Availability

Samples of the VPC3+S (order-code PALF2009) are available now at www.profichip.com. Price for single pcs is 14,00 EUR.
