B Rog writes "Cisco, Atmel, and the Swedish Institute of Computer Science
have released [0]uIPv6, the world's smallest IPv6 compliant IPv6 stack,
as open source for the [1]Contiki embedded operating system. The intent
is [2]to bring IP addresses to the masses by giving devices such as
thermometers or lightbulbs an IPv6 stack. With a code size of 11
kilobytes and a dynamic memory usage of less than 2 kilobytes (yes,
kilobytes!), it certainly fits the bill of the ultra-low-power
microcontrollers typically used in such devices. When every lightbulb has
an IP address, the vast [3]address range of IPv6 sounds like a pretty
good idea."
