The VPC3+CLF3 handles the message and address identification, the data security sequences and the protocol processing for PROFIBUS-DP. In addition the acyclic communication and alarm messages, described in DPV1 extension, are supported. Furthermore the slave-to-slave communication Data eXchange Broadcast (DXB) and the Isochronous Mode (IsoM), described in DPV2 extension, are also provided.
Automatic recognition and support of data transmission rates up to 12 Mbit/s, the integration of the complete PROFIBUS-DP protocol, 4 KByte communication RAM and the configurable processor interface are features to create high-performance PROFIBUS slave applications. The device can be operated with either 3.3V or 5V single supply voltage.
VPC3+CLF3 is pin-compatible to SPC3 ASIC from SIEMENS. Therefore, VPC3+CLF3 can replace SPC3 in existing applications along with improved functionality. See cross-reference list below:
