A Tiny Embedded UDP/IP Stack Implementation for FreeRTOS

FreeRTOS+UDP is a small, fully thread aware, sockets based, and very efficient UDP/IP (IPv4) stack for FreeRTOS. It was created specifically for, and contains the features needed by, our new Internet of Things solution (currently being documented). The standard Berkeley sockets "like" interface makes it fast to learn and easy to use in other applications, and its compact size and efficiency makes it ideal for communication between small network enabled embedded devices.

Berkeley sockets like API
Standard and zero copy interfaces
Fully re-entrant and thread aware API

Includes ARP, DHCP and DNS
Supports incoming and outgoing pings
Outgoing packet fragmentation
Tightly integrated with FreeRTOS
Open source or commercial licensing
