Transparent UART PacketTXMode
The PacketTXMode can be used to send any binary data in chunks of up to 100 Byte to any radio in the same network. Each chunk will go into a single packet and can be controlled independently.
After sending the character 0x14 (^T) over the UART, the Application will enter the PacketTXMode. A interactive menu will be started, requesting all parameters required for the packet.
Enter Packetmode? <y> y Input Packet DSTID :0x -> 0x1234 Payload length (0-99): -> 10 DATA: 00=12 01=34 02=56 03=78 04=90 05=AB 06=CD 07=EF 08=AA 09=BB Packet Mode: Frame sent!
First a security question, wether the Packetmode should be entered must by answered by sending a 'y'-character. Any other character will leave the Packetmode immediatly.
Afterwards the DSTID of the targeted radio must be entered. This is a four-digit hexadecimal number. Now the number of the databytes should be entered, followed by these databytes transmitted as ASCII-representation of the byte's hexadecimal value.
When all data has been entered and the packet has been sent, the ICradio will print the message "Packet Mode: Frame sent!". If there is some transmission error, the message
Packet Mode: NACK!
will be printed; a successful transmission is indicated by the message
Packet Mode: ACK
After sending the packet, the packet mode is leaved automatically.
