This Introduction to TCP/IP Communication training was created for engineers attending Microchip's Masters 2016 conference. Please see the Microchip Masters Conference site for more information on this technical training conference for embedded control engineers.
If you need to add network connectivity to your product, but you don’t know how TCP/IP works, this class is for you. We will teach you the basics of TCP/IP including how IP addresses are assigned and used and how the data packetization process works. We will then use this knowledge to demonstrate how an embedded device communicates on your local network or across the world using the Internet. We will teach you what ports and sockets are, and how applications use them to create TCP/IP connections. We will also describe how some common TCP/IP applications (DHCP, DNS, etc…) work. We will show you how the client-server model works and will discuss the tradeoffs to consider when choosing to locate a server on a local network vs. the Internet. Last, we will show you Microchip’s solutions for embedded TCP/IP designs, and make you aware of commonly used network analysis tools.
