To manage devices over a network, embedded software engineers must build products using a variety of communications protocols, so their network-attached applications meet the needs of their customers. However, as methods of network communications vary, today’s time-consuming methods for implementing variables separately for each protocol must change. These methods hinder product development and oppose the “future-proofing” of applications. To meet embedded engineering needs, Digi offers NET+Works with an Integrated Systems Architecture, which uses an embedded database to allow variable implementation or changes to be reflected in all deployed protocols. The result is greater programming ease and flexibility, and faster application development.
