The SDLC Toolkit for LabVIEW by RAFA Solutions implements and integrates the Synchronous Data Link Control (SDLC) data communication protocol (developed by IBM) in custom applications. SDLC is equivalent to layer 2 of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model of network communication.

The toolkit provides a LabVIEW FPGA Driver Library containing two FPGA VIs for data transmission (TX) and reception (RX). Single-channel or multichannel data communication can be implemented with additional drivers. VIs implement bit stuffing, unstuffing, CRC calculation, and forward error correction, which eliminates the need for additional data processing.

You can choose from three versions of the toolkit: without line encoding, with line encoding and decoding with standard NRZ and NRZI encoding methods, and with clock recovery support.

The toolkit supports a wide data rate range from 110 baud to 10 Mbaud. The SDLC TX FPGA VI transmits data with a user-configurable baud rate. The VI includes a single-cycle Timed Loop (SCTL) and a host-to-target DMA FIFO for data transmission from host to target. The SDLC RX FPGA VI receives SDLC data through a user-configured clock edge mode (rising/falling edge). It includes an SCTL, a target-to-host DMA FIFO for data transmission, and a separate target-to-host DMA FIFO for transmission of frame size.
