HDLC Framer

From GNU Radio
Jump to: navigation, search

HDLC framer which takes in PMT binary blobs and outputs HDLC frames as unpacked bits, with CRC and bit stuffing added. The first sample of the frame is tagged with the tag frame_tag_name and includes a length field for tagged_stream use.

This block outputs one whole frame at a time; if there is not enough output buffer space to fit a frame, it is pushed onto a queue. As a result flowgraphs which only run for a finite number of samples may not receive all frames in the queue, due to the scheduler's granularity. For flowgraphs that stream continuously (anything using a USRP) this should not be an issue.

This block goes with HDLC Deframer

Parameters

Frame tag name
The tag to add to the first sample of each frame.

Example Flowgraph

Insert description of flowgraph here, then show a screenshot of the flowgraph and the output if there is an interesting GUI. Currently we have no standard method of uploading the actual flowgraph to the wiki or git repo, unfortunately. The plan is to have an example flowgraph showing how the block might be used, for every block, and the flowgraphs will live in the git repo.
