ChorusOS 4.0 Introduction


The optional MIPC feature is designed to allow an application composed of one or multiple actors to create a shared communication environment (or message space) within which these actors can exchange messages in a very efficient way. In particular, supervisor and user actors of a same application can exchange messages with the MIPC service. Furthermore, these messages can be initially allocated and sent by interrupt handlers in order to be processed later in the context of threads.

See Chapter 8, Inter-actor Communication for more information about using message spaces.

For more details of the MIPC feature, see MIPC(5FEA).
