Many medical, IIoT, and industrial systems require sharing of data across networks, across different transport protocols, or among devices. These systems often require capabilities such as fault-tolerance, scalability, low-latency, and sub-system isolation. DDS enables these types of applications by providing a data-centric, highly scalable and efficient databus architecture. Furthermore, layering databuses has many benefits, including scalability, isolation, and redundancy.

However, key questions must be answered when designing a layered databus system:

  • What are some recommended approaches for defining the layers?
  • How are the layers connected?
  • What effects does layering have on performance?
  • What are the different approaches to implementing a layered databus?

This Tech Talk will provide an overview of these topics and offer insights and recommendations for designing your own DDS-based systems.
