How to Build and Run RTI Connext DDS Micro on a Microcontroller

As you might know, we ship a buildable source for RTI Connext DDS Micro so you can build it for your own architecture. In the past few months, we have noticed that customers are interested in building our product for microcontrollers without a Memory Management Unit (MMU), and they’re using a uClibc-based OS. The purpose of this post is to support this expressed need and illustrate how to port RTI Connext DDS Micro to uCLinux with relatively few changes. The development board that we will use in this practical example is STM32F769I-DISCO. You should be able to extrapolate it to any other board by knowing your toolchain. You can even extrapolate it to any other OS that uses uClibc!

Let’s get started.

How to Integrate RTI Connext DDS Micro with Container-Based Applications [tutorial]

Container-based microservices are all the rage as software architects and engineers work to bring the flexibility and scalability of the cloud to the edge. To support real-time communication between those microservices with a guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS), DDS makes the perfect companion. This post covers the steps necessary to integrate RTI Connext DDS Micro with container-based applications. The steps required and benefits of the technology will be described in the context of a simple publisher/subscriber example.

Compiling RTI Connext DDS Micro For The Raspberry Pi IoT Device

RTI Connext DDS Micro is RTI's product targeting small footprint devices, and it was also the basis for RTI Connext DDS Cert, a product for small footprint, safety critical use cases. While Connext DDS Micro is distributed with binaries for a few common architectures, it is also distributed with the full source-code since we anticipate that the majority of our users will compile, and even port, to their specific platform.
