Internet Protocols (TCP/IP)


Designed for Embedded Systems SCIOPTA IPS has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of modern internet protocol network applications in embedded systems.

This gives IPS the advantage over traditional internet stacks that were ported to embedded systems, of having a higher performance and a lower memory footprint.

Flexible Interface

For designers who want to take full advantage of the speed, security and debug possibilities of SCIOPTA messages, an optimized asynchronous message interface is included. An IPS-application can transmit and receive internet protocol data packages in the same way as normal SCIOPTA messages.

SCIOPTA IPS provides also a powerful function interface.

For legacy application, SCIOPTA IPS provides a BSD Socket Interface.

Distributed Systems

With its modular design the SCIOPTA IPS stack cannot only be used in high performance single CPU embedded systems but is also suitable for distributed Multi-CPU systems.


Many parts of the SCIOPTA IPS stack are encapsulated in SCIOPTA static or dynamic processes which can be started and stopped individually.

This gives a highly modular design which can be scaled for specific applications.

SCIOPTA IPS Applications


The SCIOPTA web server is used to supply data from embedded systems to host web browsers by using standardised protocols and languages.


Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is a protocol for sending e-mail messages between servers.


Trivial File Transfer Protocol, is a simple protocol to transfer files between machines on different networks implementing UDP.


Domain Name System is a service in a TCP/IP network such as SCIOPTA IPS that translates domain names into IP addresses.


Telnet is a terminal emulation program for TCP/IP networks such as SCIOPTA using the IPS stack.

DHCP client

This networking protocol is used to automatically assign an IP address to network device from a configuration server.


File Transfer Protocol, is a communication protocol for sharing files over a TCP/IP network.


Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is a specialized communication protocol for communication between client devices and printers (or print servers).

DHCP server

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is a protocol for assigning dynamic IP addresses to devices on a TCP/IP network such as SCIOPTA IPS.

IPS NG (Internet Protocol Stack New Generation) is a complete rewrite of IPS (Internet Protocol Stack). The main differences between the former and the latter are:

  • IPS NG is no longer dependent on GDD/SDD
  • IPv6 protocol has been added.
