A driver-based approach to protocol stack design The addition of network connectivity has the potential to open up new markets and enable new and exciting uses for many products. As a result, network connections of one sort or another are becoming standard requirements for a wide variety of embedded systems. However, making a system network-ready isn't easy. A variety of performance, reliability, and interoperability issues must be considered to make a product behave successfully in the field. In this article I will describe a new approach to protocol stack design. This approach can be called driver-based, to distinguish it from the more traditional task-based approach. I'll describe both approaches to protocol stack design in detail and then compare them with respect to efficiency and real-time response. View the PDF document for more information.
