Solution offers embedded Internetworking designers previously unavailable SNMP functionality
Jacksonville, FL – March 29, 2004 – CMX Systems, well-known designer of real-time operating systems and TCP/IP software today announced the availability of the SNMP Add-On Option for the popular CMX-MicroNet TCP/IP stack. CMX-MicroNet is a very small footprint TCP/IP software stack that has been developed to provide Internetworking connectivity tools to designers working with 8-bit, 16-bit, and DSP processors.
CMX-MicroNet’s new SNMP Add-On Option is a memory-efficient, highly portable, complete Software Development Kit designed for embedded systems developers requiring SNMP V1 or SNMP V2c functionality for their applications running on processors with limited memory resources. CMX-MicroNet’s SNMP features a very small footprint that is suitable for inclusion in internal memory of single chip processor designs already supported by CMX-MicroNet. Other SNMP agents are designed for network elements such as routers, resulting in unnecessarily large implementations for assets or appliances. CMX-MicroNet’s SNMP provides system designers and software developers with a simple, cost-effective means to design a wide variety of hardware devices that can connect directly to corporate and home networks.
Chuck Behrmann, president and CEO of CMX, said, "We are very pleased to announce the release of this important software enhancement to CMX-MicroNet. There has been a strong demand for SNMP functionality from embedded designers, but it has taken a lot of work to produce a product that would meet the ROM/RAM requirements of an 8-bit processor-based design. We are confident that developers will be pleasantly surprised by the small footprint of CMX-MicroNet’s SNMP module."
Key Features of the SNMP Add-On Option
- Requires as little as 8 KB on an 8051.
- Requires no memory management.
- Supports SET, GET, NEXT, TRAP, and GETBULK.
- No multitasking features are required. Code is implemented to facilitate the request-response mechanism of SNMP. A single routine is called when a SNMP request is received. A single routine is called to generate a trap.
The SNMP Add-On Option consists of:
- A portable SNMP Agent protocol engine supporting SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and bilingual protocols in "C" source format. The specific SNMP version is defined at compile time. The engine is driven by data in a ‘C’ file generated by the MIB compiler.
- MIB compiler which produces 'C' code from standard ASN.1 MIB files.
- A MIB variable data editor, which is a Windows program allowing entry of static and default values to MIB variables.
- Full technical Documentation
CMX and its Alliance Partners offer services for designing and implementing specific MIB’s and integration into applications. Our in-depth knowledge and advanced technologies allow clients to rapidly implement embedded systems.
CMX-MicroNet is a scaled down TCP/IP software stack with a total ROM footprint of 3Kb - 20Kb, depending upon configuration, for 8-bit processors or those 16-bit processors that require a single-chip solution with no external memory or DSP’s. CMX-MicroNet supports more 8-bit, 16-bit microprocessors, and DSP’s than any other existing solution. CMX-MicroNet is currently available, starting at $5,500 for the base system. All CMX software includes complete source code, no royalties on shipped products, and free technical support and updates.
