TCP/IP stack for GPRS

Started by Jesper March 7, 2005
Hey

Any of you had any experience with running tcp/ip stack on 8051 for
GPRS purpose?? Which 8051 uC and TCP/IP stack did you use?? Free ones
preferred :-)

Or should I use a different uC like AVR ATMega128 og an ARM7 like
Phillips LPC21XX. I've only got experience with 8051 uC....

It's my first GPRS project, any suggestions on my choice of TCP/IP
stack??

Regards

Look at the TC45 from Siemens, it is a Java module and includes the TCP/IP 
stack.

You could use a GPRS modem with built in TCP/IP We use an alphamicro module http://www.alphamicro.net/components/product.asp?id=218&line=4 and have found it to be pretty good. It uses easy AT commands. Ross
Why not using a GSM/GPRS module with a built-in TCP-IP stack ? Cf products 
from Wavecom, Sony-Erricson, Sagem, Telit, Siemens, etc

Hey again

Well TC45 or TC65 is'nt an option, because of it's few i/o pins.

Have many customers which have used the ATmega128 for GPRS connectivity, and most of them want the ATmega256 now. The AT91SAM7S256 ARM7 seems also to be good for this market due to large RAM size (64 kB) which many like.. Only a few customers have received samples of the SAM7S256 yet, but it should be more generally available in a few months. -- Best Regards Ulf at atmel dot com These comments are intended to be my own opinion and they may, or may not be shared by my employer, Atmel Sweden.
