Unformatted text preview: Transfer Frame transmitted within a specific Virtual Channel.
18.104.22.168.3 A re-setting of the Virtual Channel Frame Count before reaching 255 shall not
take place unless it is unavoidable.
NOTE – The purpose of this field is to provide individual accountability for each Virtual
Channel, primarily to enable systematic Packet extraction from the Transfer
Frame Data Field. If the Virtual Channel Frame Count is re-set because of an
unavoidable re-initialization, the completeness of a sequence of Transfer Frames
in the related Virtual Channel cannot be determined.

Frame Data Field Status.
184.108.40.206.1.2 This 16-bit field shall be sub-divided into five sub-fields, as follows: a) Transfer Frame Secondary Header Flag (1 bit, mandatory);
b) Synchronization Flag (1 bit, mandatory);
c) Packet Order Flag (1 bit, mandatory);
d) Segment Length Identifier (2 bits, mandatory);
e) First Header Pointer (11 bits, mandatory).

220.127.116.11.2 Transfer Frame Secondary Header Flag 18.104.22.168.2.1 Bit 32 of the Transfer Frame Primary Header shall contain the Transfer Frame
Secondary Header Flag.
22.214.171.124.2.2 The Transfer Frame Secondary Header Flag shall signal the presence or absence
of the Transfer Frame Secondary Header. It shall be ‘1’ if a Transfer Frame Secondary
Header is present; it shall be ‘0’ if a Transfer Frame Secondary Header is not present.
126.96.36.199.2.3 The Transfer Frame Secondary Header Flag shall be static within the associated
Master or Virtual Channel throughout a Mission Phase.
NOTE – For the significance of the above-mentioned as...
