TCP/IP stack suggestions

Posted by Thomas Johansen on November 14, 2011

There are many good Tcp/Ip stacks out there. So I just want our opinion on which one you think is best.

This is the needs:

Only one TCP connection to a server
DHCP support
UDP broadcast.
Maybee also a WEB server

I'm using a LPC2478 CPU.

The size is not the biggest concern with the TCP/IP stack.
Also, there will only be one connection at a time
Low data rate for server/client communication
Any royalty cost is also ok

What do you think would be the best choice for Tcp/Ip stack?

If cost, throughput and royalties are not a problem - then you are really left with ease of use and reliability as your selection criteria, so go for a supported commercial option that has some heritage to give it credibility. On the LPC you could go for NicheLite for free, or NicheStack for commercial, but there are other commercial and open source stacks around too that would fit the bill (as you know).

Yes, NicheLite is a good Idea. It is supported directly for NXP MCU's.

another criteria is the intercration with FreeRTOS, but also there InterNicge fits. Or are there any better solution for FreeRTOS?
