High-Speed I/Os on board

(PresseBox) (Herzogenaurach, ) The core of this PLC 7001 Chip is based on the PLC 7000 which has already been in use for two years. With its simplified memory interface the PLC 7001 can also be easily integrated as embedded PLC into diverse customer applications.

Moreover the peripheral interface offers the possibility to realize up to 56 in- and outputs, pulse duration modulation functions as well as stepper motor controls from integrated modules. For the application of decentral peripherals, the chip offers a serial I/O bus which allows operation of up to 32 digital and analog I/O modules.

In addition this component provides two interfaces on which either MPI, Profibus or serial communication up to 12Mbaud can be carried out.

In connection with an Arm9 processor there is also the possibility to operate Ethernet-based communication like TCP/IP, EtherCAT, Powerlink and Profinet.

At an operating voltage of 1.8V the power loss amounts to only 1.2W. For this reason the design is optimally suitable for the application in higher temperature ranges.


For users wishing to integrate a high-performance hard PLC into their application, there is a prefabricated PLC module which lead through all digital/analog and other communication interfaces to a SO-200 PinConnector. These modules can be easily integrated into various applications like board controllers, HMIs or the like.

The modules as well as the chip models can be equipped with a PLC user memory of up to 2MB.

The component will be available in batch production in August 2007.

profichip GmbH

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.
