TCP/IP stack enhances IAR Systems' middleware offering

IAR Systems has announced the launch of a TCP/IP stack that works with IAR PowerPac RTOS and file system to offer the benefits of an easy-to-use TCP/IP interface to developers using IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM. This new addition to the company's integrated middleware portfolio is suitable for use in portable devices that need a convenient connection to a computer network such as the Internet.

With the TCP/IP stack module, IAR PowerPac includes everything necessary to add a fully working TCP/IP interface to an ARM device. IAR PowerPac TCP/IP stack is runtime configurable and designed to work on any ARM-powered embedded system with an Ethernet controller. With an ARM7 processor IAR PowerPac, TCP/IP is capable of transfer rates of up to 2.5MB/s.

The communication stack is supplied with ready-to-run projects for supported ARM-powered microcontrollers. Supported protocols include: TCP; IP; UDP; Telnet; ARP; DHCP (client); ICMP; and TFTP. The stack is optimised to ensure both minimum memory consumption and high-speed operation, and is connected via a standard BSD socket interface. It features zero data copy for fast performance, and the number of connections is limited only by the available memory. Zero compile time configuration means that the code can be compiled into a library for use in future projects.

"The ARM developer now has the power to configure and optimise a communications interface on a wide range of embedded systems from within the familiar development environment IAR Embedded Workbench," commented Mats Ullstr?m, product director of IAR Systems.

The IAR PowerPac TCP/IP stack will be available from November 2007.
