NetWorld +Interop 2001 Tokyo to Feature Groundbreaking Demonstration of IPv6 on an 8-bit Microcontroller
InternetNode Inc. and Yokogawa Electric Corporation will demonstrate their IP version 6 (IPv6) capability by connecting over one hundred of their "HotNode" temperature sensing micronodes to the exhibition network at Networld+Interop 2001 Tokyo from June 6 to 8, 2001 at Booth 2B26. "HotNode" is an IPv6-enabled exhibit model that uses Dallas Semiconductor's DS-TINI-1 microcontroller, the world's first embedded microcontroller with IPv6 connectivity jointly implemented at the three companies, InternetNode, Yokogawa, and Dallas.
IPv6 has a 128-bit address space, allowing for a virtually unlimited number of nodes to connect directly to the Internet. A compact embedded microcontroller with IPv6 connectivity is needed to allow appliance and equipment manufacturers to design products for new applications and markets. InternetNode and Yokogawa chose the DS-TINI-1 microcontroller from Dallas because of its low cost and underlying support of Internet technologies. InternetNode has jointly integrated an IPv6 stack into Dallas's TINI runtime environment (http://www.ibutton.com/TINI/index.html) for network microcontrollers.
InternetNode will further develop new devices using IPv6 technology, and will also create new applications and business models utilizing IPv6's abundant address space and end-to-end communication ability.
Dallas will demonstrate and announce support for IPv6 applications on their network microcontrollers (http://www.ibutton.com/TINI/ds80c400.pdf) at JavaOneSM, from June 4 to 8 in San Francisco. The Company will also feature a demonstration of their DS-TINI-1 microcontroller at JavaOne, Booth 707.
Programmers attending JavaOne will also be able to get the first printing of "The TINI Specification and Developer's Guide" which details the use of the DS80C390/400 microcontrollers as TINI servers that run Java. The publisher, Addison-Wesley, will have the first copies at Booth 1811.
