Network Protocol Kit

DSS Network's Network Protocol Kit is a Software Development Kit (SDK) designed for developing modular Network and I/O software components running under vxWorks. It is designed to expedite development of vxWorks network protocol stack software and drivers by providing a complete drop-in environment for building modular protocol stacks and device drivers. It leverages the most comprehensive Network and I/O features of the vxWorks operating system and provides additional Drivers, Protocol Modules, APIs and Libraries. It offers a "split module" architecture for separating the lower and upper interfaces of a module or driver. It also comes complete with device drivers for Gigabit Ethernet and USB.


  • Device drivers for USB and Gigabit Ethernet included
  • Device driver templates includes both Lower and Upper Halves for a "split-module" architecture
  • Protocol stack module upper provides a common upper interface module for interfacing with the vxWorks MUX layer as its upper interface
  • Protocol stack modular lower provides a common lower interface module for interfacing with the vxWorks MUX layer as its lower interface
  • I/O dispatcher and director for encapsulating functionality common across all devices. Provides for queuing and flow-control
  • Application API supports both a socket and I/O system application interface for supporting bi-directional transfer of data and control information.
  • Provides a zero-copy "push" (event driven) or "pull" (polled) API functionality. Supports blocking and non-blocking I/O
  • Interface library functions for building named abstracted, and dynamically run-time bindable interfaces
  • Linked list library functions supports both singly and doubly-linked lists
  • Buffer library functions allows the creation and management of multiple buffer pools and sizes.
  • Provides library functions for operations on buffers
  • Queue library functions provides for the management and operation of both single and doubly linked list queues
  • Timer library functions for managing multiple timers within your protocol module or driver
  • Protocol and driver configuration management. Provides for system initialization, configuration and device management
  • Object management provides an object oriented data store for managing and type of data object
  • Built-in statistics, status and real-time tracing for development, testing and maintenance of drivers and protocol modules
