Network Technology for Embedded Computing

Networks are gaining importance in all disciplines of embedded computing: At the high-end, multi-processor systems need high-speed networks for interconnectivity and feeding in data. The scope of this paper are major trends in Ethernet network technology and how network technology, both hardware and software, is implemented in high-end embedded systems. As practical examples, embedded form factors CompactPCI and MicroTCA are shown at 10 Gigabit/s speed for switching and packet processing. This paper concludes with a practical look into the components of a switching platform for embedded products.
