On the Ethernet History page accessible from the First 30 Years Timeline link, Vitalink appears in two place: (1) Under 80 in the Timeline tab, and (2) under Commercialization in The Players tab. No Wikipedia entry exists for Vitalink and therefore no directly accessible detailed information for Vitalink.

Intel produced the first ethernet chip set in 1983, the 82586 (data link layer) and 82501 (phy). I think they started shipping in volume in 1984.
