Detailed Description

Creates the encoder block for use in GNU Radio flowgraphs with async message from a given FEC API object derived from the generic_encoder class.

Encodes frames received as async messages or as a PDU over a message port. This encoder works off a full message as one frame or block to encode. The message length is used as the frame length. To support this, the encoder variable used will have had its frame_size set. This block treats that initial frame_size value as the maximum transmission unit (MTU) and will not process frames larger than that.

This deployment works off messages and expects them to either be messages full of unpacked bits or PDU messages, which means full bytes of a frame from the higher layers, including things like headers, tails, CRC check bytes, etc. For handling PDUs, set the packed option of this deployment block to True. The block will then use the FEC API to properly unpack the bits from the PDU, pass it through the encoder, and repack them to output the PDUs for the next stage of processing.

The packed PDU form of this deployment is designed to work well with other PDU-based blocks to operate within the processing flow of data packets or frames.

Due to differences in how data is packed and processed, this block also offers the ability to change the direction of how bits are unpacked and packed, where reading or writing from the LSB or MSB. By default, the rev_unpack and rev_pack modes are set to True. Using this setup allows the async block to behave with PDUs in the same operation and format as the tagged stream encoders. That is, putting the same data into both the tagged stream encoder deployment and this with these default settings should produce the same data.

Member Function Documentation

virtual int gr::fec::async_encoder::general_work ( int  noutput_items,
gr_vector_int ninput_items,
gr_vector_const_void_star input_items,
gr_vector_void_star output_items 
)
pure virtual

compute output items from input items

Parameters
noutput_itemsnumber of output items to write on each output stream
ninput_itemsnumber of input items available on each input stream
input_itemsvector of pointers to the input items, one entry per input stream
output_itemsvector of pointers to the output items, one entry per output stream
Returns
number of items actually written to each output stream, or -1 on EOF. It is OK to return a value less than noutput_items. -1 <= return value <= noutput_items

general_work must call consume or consume_each to indicate how many items were consumed on each input stream.

Reimplemented from gr::block.

static sptr gr::fec::async_encoder::make ( generic_encoder::sptr  my_encoder,
bool  packed = false,
bool  rev_unpack = true,
bool  rev_pack = true,
int  mtu = 1500

static

Build the PDU-based FEC encoder block from an FECAPI encoder object.

Parameters
my_encoderAn FECAPI encoder object child of the generic_encoder class.
packedTrue if working on packed bytes (like PDUs).
rev_unpackReverse the unpacking order from input bytes to bits.
rev_packReverse the packing order from bits to output bytes.
mtuThe Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) of the input frame that the block will be able to process. Specified in bytes and defaults to 1500.
