dspIP : a TCP/IP implementation for a Digital Signal Processor
MetadataShow full item record
From the initial implementations for the DEC PDP-11 to those of today done for commodity PICs, the TCP/IP code stack continues to work its way into a smaller and more omnipresent class of devices. One shortcoming of current devices on the leading edge of this trend is that they belong more to the microcontroller categories, which typically lack any appreciable signal processing capability. Applications such as consumer electronics and wireless sensor networks could benefit greatly from single-chip network-capable devices which are based on a Digital Signal Processing (DSP) core rather than a microcontroller. This report details the design and implementation of a partial TCP/IP code stack intended for such a DSP.
