Connext DDS Micro implements a subset of the DDS API and features. However, it has all of the essential communication and data features of the full implementation, so in practice, a device running the resource-constrained version can be treated just like a device with the full version. Both Connext DDS and Connext DDS Micro are 100% compatible with the OMG DDS-RTPS wire protocol. Thus, any kind of device or sensor can be plugged into the network and communicate openly with regular nodes. Software Components - Connext DDS software
