Full TCP/IP for 8-Bit architectures

Dunkels, Adam (2003) Full TCP/IP for 8-Bit architectures. In: In Proceedings of the First International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications and Services (MobiSys), 5-8 May 2003, San Francisco, California, USA.



We describe two small and portable TCP/IP implementations fulfilling the subset of RFC1122 requirements needed for full host-to-host interoperability. Our TCP/IP implementations do not sacrifice any of TCP's mechanisms such as urgent data or congestion control. They support IP fragment reassembly and the number of multiple simultaneous connections is limited only by the available RAM. Despite being small and simple, our implementations do not require their peers to have complex, full-size stacks, but can communicate with peers running a similarly light-weight stack. The code size is on the order of 10 kilobytes and RAM usage can be configured to be as low as a few hundred bytes.
