Yes I have done that.

Well VT8237A was not added. I have datasheet too. (I have datasheets for R/S/A
version of VT8237)

OK. I think it is fairly similar to VT8237R/S too. Best would be to have the
VT8237S datasheet too, so you know what is different.
Unfortunately I have no time to compare what is different.
I'm leaving for now, will be back next year ;)
