Web platform: uIP TCP/IP stack with interrupts, DMA

Posted on Wednesday, May 12th, 2010 in tcpip, web platforms by Ian

Here’s another update on the uIP TCP/IP stack port for the web platform. Bonybrown got the uIP stack to work with interrupts from the ENC28J60, and used DMA to transfer buffers to PIC memory.

Performance wise – no real difference I can see from the ping times; theoretically, the biggest improvement will be in “responsiveness” of other tasks on the dsPIC, especially when sending or receiving larger packets.

Bonybrown’s previous work is in the web platform folder of the SVN. We’ll try to release the newer code as a complete project archive in a few days.
