White Paper gives comprehensive overview of TCP/IP protocol

8051 TCP/IP

Computer Solutions has produced a White Paper which is designed to introduce the TCP/IP protocol to embedded engineers who may be unfamiliar with its many options.

Written by the company's Managing Director, Chris Stephens, the paper is entitled 'TCP/IP - an introduction for 8- and 16-bit microcontroller engineers'. It not only covers the various protocols in detail, but also offers advice on choosing the protocol most appropriate for a particular application, and shows how TCP/IP can be integrated into microcontroller systems, with particular emphasis on the use of the CMX-MicroNet TCP/IP stack.

An important section is a glossary giving a detailed listing of the many common mnemonics used in TCP/IP applications, all the way from ARP to UDP. Also included is a list of further reading material and useful application programs.

CMX-MicroNet, which is marketed and supported in the UK by Computer Solutions, is of particular significance to the topic of the White Paper because it provides an implementation of TCP/IP that is optimised for use on small 8- and 16-bit CPUs that may have little memory available and so would be unable to use large conventional stacks. It does not require or include a real-time operating system.
