This paper proposes a compact time sharing system for home use applying the simple Network Time Protocol. The compact SNTP server/client system for home appliances like audio, video buzzer controls, etc., has been developed as an extension of an SNTP client application. The newly developed system can obtain the time from time detection sensors directly without upper layer NTP servers. For verification, the developed system operated on a real-time operating system, T-Kernel/Standard Extension, with a 32-bit RISC MPU, SH7727. A new type of embedded streaming media client is designed in this paper.
