Both I and S frames contain a receive sequence number N R. HDLC provides both connection-oriented and connectionless service. The least significant bit first transmitted defines the frame type. It is called Poll when part of a command set by the primary station to obtain a response from a secondary station , and Final when part of a response set by the secondary station to indicate a response or the end of transmission. The S-frame control field includes a leading “10” indicating that it is an S-frame. Some hardware does not support this. The FCS was implemented because many early communication links had a relatively high bit error rate , and the FCS could readily be computed by simple, fast circuitry or software.

HDLC frames can be transmitted over synchronous or asynchronous serial communication links. If there are too many 1-bits in a row, the receiver can lose count. Unfortunately, this mode of operation has some implementation subtleties.

In this mode, the secondary responds ngm almost every frame other than a mode set command with a “Disconnected mode” response. Retrieved from ” https: The frame boundary octet is0x7E in hexadecimal notation. The receiving device knows that this is being done, and after seeing five 1-bits in a row, a following 0-bit is stripped out of the received data.

Normal response mode allows the secondary-to-primary link to be shared without contentionbecause it has the primary give the secondaries ehternet to transmit one at a time.

The original “normal response mode” is a master-slave mode where the computer or primary terminal gives each peripheral secondary terminal permission to speak in turn. If either of these two octets appears in the transmitted data, an escape octet is sent, followed by the original data octet with bit 5 inverted.


A P bit arriving in a command from the remote station is not in response to our P bit; only an F bit arriving in a response is.

N R provides a positive acknowledgement for the receipt of I-frames from the other side of the link. Thus, each 0 bit provides an opportunity for a receiving modem to synchronize its clock via a phase-locked loop. Even though fewer than 32 values are in use, some types have different meanings depending on the direction they are sent: More effective forward error correction schemes are now widely used by other protocols.

Those links have no mechanism to mark the beginning or end of a frame, so the beginning and end of each frame has to be identified. This is done by using a unique sequence of bits as a frame delimiter, ndm flagand encoding the data to ensure that the flag sequence is never seen inside a frame. Again, the least significant bit rightmost in this table is sent first.

In addition they also include flow and error control information piggybacked on data. Data is usually sent in multiples of 8 bits, but only some variants require this; others theoretically permit data alignments on other than 8-bit boundaries. This can be used to abort packet transmission with no chance the partial packet will be interpreted as valid by the receiver.

This page was last edited on 31 Octoberat This is done by bit stuffing: A “control escape octet “, has the value 0x7D bit sequence ”, as RS transmits least-significant bit first. Both I and S frames contain a receive sequence number N R.


If 7-bit sequence numbers are used, etherne is also a 4-bit padding field. Some hardware does not support this. This allows other fully compliant standards to be derived from it, and derivatives have since appeared in innumerable standards.

N R operates the same way whether it is part of a command or response. They exchange session management and control information between connected devices, and some U-frames contain an information field, used for system management information or user data.

If instead the sixth bit is 1, this is either a flag if the seventh bit is 0or an error if the seventh bit is 1. The secondary only sends a Final when it has received a Poll from the primary.

For half-duplex or multi-drop communication, where several transmitters share a line, a receiver on the line will see continuous idling 1-bits in the inter-frame period when no transmitter is active.

Each frame begins and ends with a frame delimiter. Supervisory Frames, or ‘S-frames’, are used for flow and error control whenever piggybacking is impossible or inappropriate, such as when a station does not have data to send.

Asynchronous balanced mode adds the concept of a combined terminal which can act as both a primary and a secondary. It also allows operation over half-duplex communication links, as long as the primary is aware that it may not transmit when it has given permission to a secondary.
