Embedding TCP/IP

Keywords:TCP/IP  communications protocol  network protocols 

Embedding TCP/IP Embedded systems have inherited the programming practices used in larger systems. Network protocols, and TCP/IP in particular, incorporate programming practices used in larger systems. As discussed in the first part of this article, the history of TCP/IP is one of adapting and modifying the original sources written at the University of California at Berkeley to embedded systems. The Berkeley stack is the basis for most of these ports and is the basis of most of the commercial TCP/IP stacks for embedded systems. Of course, real-time and embedded systems face many issues that are unique. A straight port of the Berkeley stack is not the best implementation for the particular needs of an embedded and real-time system. View the PDF document for more information.
