Intro to CORBA for embedded systems Embedded systems communicate with each other and with desktop systems more now than ever before. A number of options exist for the system designer who faces the task of allowing a range of embedded systems to communicate. When a number of systems are going to communicate over a network, TCP/IP is the most popular protocol, and it also allows the option of communication over the Internet. However, TCP/IP sockets allow only a low level of communication where raw bytes are pushed from one place to another. Each node on the network must parse those bytes to decide what request is being made, or if this is a reply to an earlier request. If the system is large and the there is a rich mixture of message types, then a higher level of communication is necessary. Rather than simply getting a message to the right device, you want to get a message to a specific object on that device. CORBA can supply this. View the PDF document for more information.
