message buffer

message buffer

[′mes·ij ‚bəf·ər]
(computer science)
One of a number of sections of computer memory, which contains a message that can be transmitted between tasks in the computer system to request service and receive replies from tasks, and which is stored in a system buffer area, outside the address spaces of tasks.

mini send(caller, destination, ms): If the destination process is blocked waiting for that message from the caller, the message is copied from the caller's message buffer pointed by msg to the destination's message buffer, otherwise the caller process is blocked.
Complete with internal enhanced CEC (consumer electronic control) with expanded message buffer, 5-V tolerant I/Os and on-chip IUC master, the highly integrated, energy-saving transmitters provide designers with system-ready solutions that lower development and manufacturing costs across a wide range of HDMI-enabled devices.
Based on the E-Ray core licensed from Robert Bosch GmbH, the device uses VHDL code certified by TUV Nord, supports 2-channel and FIFO operations, and supports 218 different identifiers by providing more than 8kBytes of message buffer memory.
R32C/118 MCUs include a CAN(a)1 module that supports a 32-slot message buffer for the robust networking standards widely used in factory automation equipment.
MFR4200 features -- Bit rate up to a maximum of 10 Mbit/sec on each of two channels -- Two channels -- Redundant for fault tolerance -- Independent for 2x bandwidth -- 59 message buffers, each with a payload of up to 32 bytes of data -- Each message buffer configurable as receive buffer, transmit buffer (single or double) or as part of the receive first in-first out (FIFO) -- 64-pin low-profile quad flat package (LQFP)
By implementing the CAN bridge in hardware, the microcontroller can relieve the central processing unit (CPU) of routine tasks such as data transfer from one message buffer to another, significantly improving overall system efficiency.
PKI has been widely adopted by e-businesses as a method for securing the data stored in a transaction message buffer before it is routed over the Internet to another system.
Siemens won for its telecommunications application -- EWSD(R) switching system Message Buffer D (MBD), a message router and protocol handler used in one of the world's most popular telephone switching systems.
The three ASICs, which are integrated in the message buffer unit of the EWSD, are true system-on-a-chip designs as they integrate a processor core, application-specific IP and memory elements on a single chip, and together, they define the function of the system.
Specifically designed for embedded client devices, Extended Systems' SyncML SDK also features small code size (less than 40k ROM) optimized for memory limited devices and includes support for large objects, allowing developers to use a smaller message buffer resulting in saved RAM space on the device.
Presented annually to the industry's two most outstanding electronics designs, the Design Achievement Award acknowledges Siemens' redesign of the Message Buffer D (MBD) for the EWSD switch boosting throughput by a factor of ten, while utilizing just one eighth the surface area of the previous design.
The award was presented to Siemens AG in recognition for its innovative Message Buffer Device (MBD) project for Siemens' Information and Communication Networks' EWSD(R) PowerNode(R) switching system.
