MODBUS Slave Documentation
2.9.2 The MODBUS slave was designed for embedded engineers by embedded engineers to get an easy and ready to use software component. Using this stack can greatly reduce your development and testing time. The stack supports the following features:
A C-compiler and an engineer capable of 'C' programming. If there already exists a port for your target platform integrating the stack into your development environment is a matter of hours. In the other case a new port must be created but we provide the following tools to ease the work of developers:
- Very low memory footprint of about 300 - 350Bytes for RTU and ASCII and a single instance.
- Multiple slave instances supported on a single system.
- Support of very small systems without an operating system to larger system using for example linux.
- Support for almost all MODBUS functions codes.
- Royalty free license.
- Delivered in source code to protect your investions.
- Delivered with a lot of already existing ports.
- Free software updates and bugfixes.
- Online bug reporting and open for customer improvements.
- A complete test suite which can be used to test the port.
- Two templates for systems with and without an operating system which can be found in the
/demo/BARERTOS. On request we can also provide complete and tested ports for your platform.
