Class SerialMessage

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Message
    Direct Known Subclasses:
    SpecificMessage, SpecificMessage, SpecificMessage, SpecificMessage

    public abstract class SerialMessage
    extends AbstractMRMessage
    Contains the data payload of a serial packet.

    The transmission protocol can come in one of several forms:

    • If the interlocked parameter is false (default), the packet is just sent. If the response length is not zero, a reply of that length is expected.
    • If the interlocked parameter is true, the transmission will require a CRC interlock, which will be automatically added. (Design note: this is done to make sure that the messages remain atomic)
