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.
