Unformatted text preview: Us) plus some parameters in the Transfer Frame Primary Header generated
by COP-1. The Transfer Frame will be generated by the Frame Generation
Procedure, as defined in reference . The Frame Data Unit consists of the data
to be inserted in the Transfer Frame Data Field.
Within COP-1, control of sequentiality is maintained using the Frame Sequence Number,
which must be present in each Type-A Transfer Frame. Type-A Transfer Frames are
transmitted by the FOP-1 with their Frame Sequence Numbers arranged in strict up-counting
order. The FARM-1 permits Type-A Transfer Frames to be accepted only if they are
received bearing Frame Sequence Numbers in the proper up-counting sequential order.
Upon detection of the first sequence error, the FARM-1 will reject all subsequent Type-A
Transfer Frames on that Virtual Channel which do not contain the expected Frame Sequence
Number. FOP-1 initiates retransmission either in response to a ‘Retransmit’ Flag in the
CLCW or by detecting a timeout. FOP-1 performs retransmission by re-sending all
unacknowledged Type-A Transfer Frames on that Virtual Channel. FOP-1 and FARM-1
also have a window mechanism to prevent a new Transfer Frame with the same Frame
Sequence Number as that of a missing Transfer Frame from being transmitted or accepted.
Valid Type-B Transfer Frames will always be accepted by FARM-1, and processed only to
the extent of incrementing a counter for Type-B Transfer Frames in the CLCW. Type-B
Transfer Frames are also used to send Control Commands from the FOP-1 to the FARM-1.
Both Type-A and Type-B Transfer Frames are protected by the error correction/detection
capability of the underlying Channel Coding Sublayer and also must pass the Frame
Validation Check defined in reference . Therefore, Type-B Transfer Frames accepted by CCSDS 232.1-B-2 Page 2-1 September 2010 RECOMMENDED STANDARD FOR COMMUNICATIONS OPERATION PROCEDURE-1 FARM-1 have a very high probability of being error-free. However, their sequentiality is not
controlled by COP-1.
