Embedded Proto is an easy to use C++ Protocol Buffer implementation specifically suited for microcontrollers. Different types of MCUs are supported. Reliability is guaranteed, and code quality is checked against an extensive rule set.
Version 3.2.0 is out now!
Why Embedded Proto?
By using protobuf in your microcontroller, you can easily exchange data between multiple controllers, servers, or desktop applications. It simplifies your workflow and makes your code robust by generating data serialization code. This way, you do not have to write this for all platforms with which you communicate.
Embedded Proto generates protobuf code specifically suited for microcontrollers, something the google implementation does not. Examples for processors such as the ARM Cortex-M 32bit series or the Texas Instruments MSP420 16bit series are available.
The Embedded Proto protoc plugin has a user friendly interface. It is easy to exchange data between your MCU and other devices, servers, apps, or applications in a standardized format. Learn more about protocol buffers.
Embedded Proto comes with extensive documentation. Covering everything – from the basics to the installation process and usage instructions.
There are various implementation examples available for different toolchains and processors. Click on one of the examples below for a detailed explanation on how to set it up yourself.
Do you want to explore the workings of Embedded Proto by yourself? That is fine, the source code is available for free for open source projects on Github.
