IPV6 support in embedded network chips?
Ruben Jönssonemail (remove spam text)
TCPIP stack V6 (still in beta) have support for IPV6.
Part of the release notes:
The v6.xx version of the MCHP TCP/IP stack addresses the networking applications that need to run with:
- IPv6 support
- Multiple network interfaces support
- Capability to stop/start a network interface or the whole stack dynamically at run time
- PIC32 or PIC24/dsPIC processors that have at least 192-256 KB of flash memory and 16 KB RAM available.
This is the new MCHP TCP/IP stack and it should be used for all the new projects on PIC32 and PIC24/dsPIC machines.
Please note that this current version no longer supports PIC18 processors.
For applications and projects that need PIC18 support or simply do not need IPv6 or multiple network interfaces the MCHP TCP/IP stack v5.41 is still a viable solution.
The following release notes are relevant to the new features added to the version v6.xx of the TCP/IP stack.
For the vast majority of the TCP/IP related issues the regular help file distributed with MCHP MLA is still valid and should be consulted as a source as information.
