A lightweight library-style communications stack aimed at the AVR Atmega168/328 and compatible microcontrollers. The purpose of the stack is to allow messages to be passed between AVR chips and a host PC regardless of which bus connection is used on the AVR. A Java stack implementation to be developed concurrently with the embedded C versions for the AVR enables PC applications to talk to the embedded network.
The μnix OS (pronounced "myoonix," as the "mu" in front is the greek letter μ, for micro) is an 8-bit multi-core workstation built around Atmel's AVR family of microcontrollers. From the AVR multi-core Processing System to the ATBIOS, this workstation is an 8-bit workhorse. Sporting ATXmega cores and ATmega/ATtiny peripheral controllers, the μnix workstation runs a UNIX-like exokernel Operating System, with architectural modalities based on Digital Unix and Solaris 2.6.
