Profichip receives the Innovation award IT 2010 for its product proficonn

Both proficonn modules proficonn-DIP28 (above) and proficonn-DSUB (below) (PresseBox) (Herzogenaurach, ) Proficonn - the smallest PROFIBUS-DP Interface module worldwide - of profichip GmbH in Herzogenaurach received the Innovation prize 2010 as part of the Initiative Mittelstand in the category hardware. For the seventh time Initiative Mittelstand selects with its Innovation prize IT 2010 the most innovative products and solutions from over 2000 transmittals.

All presented products are evaluated by the 80 member jury including professors, scientist and experts from industry, trade and IT as well as specialized journalists according to the content of innovation, relevance for the practice and suitability for the middle class.

In the category Hardware, profichip GmbH competed successfully with its product proficonn. The high integrated interface modules enable the immediate hardware integration of a PROFIBUS-DP slave interface with a transmission rate up to 12 Mbit/s. The development of VPC3+S, the smallest PROFIBUS-ASICs worldwide of profichip GmbH, provides the best basis for a spacesaving and cost effective interface in module type. Thereby all PROFIBUS protocol versions (DP-V0, DP-V1 and DP-V2) will be supported.

The module contains beneath the PROFIBUS protocol ASIC the complete RS485 interface including DC/DC transducer, dc decoupling and RS485 driver chip.

The power supply for both modules is 3,3V combined with a very less current consumption. State LEDs displaying the available power supply and the active data interchange.
