ISO 21806-6:2020 pdf download.Road vehicles — Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) — Part 6: Data link layer
1 Scope
This document specifies technical requirements related to the MOST data link layer functionality. A MOST network is comprised of two or more nodes connected through a physical layer. The data link layer functionality is provided by each node. On each network, all nodes are synchronised and one node provides the system clock. This node is the TimingMaster, while all other nodes are TimingSlaves. The timing configuration of the node (TimingMaster or TimingSlave) determines the tasks that need to be performed on the data link layer.
The data link layer specifies the following subjects:
— the service interface to the network layer;
— the network frame, its areas and indicators;
— the different network channels;
— the different flow control mechanisms;
— the load-adaptive arbitration and the round-robin arbitration;
— the different addressing options;
— the different cyclic redundancy checks, their usage and the CRC acknowledge;
— the frame indicators.

7.4 DLL — Indicators
Indicators are located in the bit stream of the network frame. They allow the transmission of non-data information in the MOST network bit stream for advanced flow control. Indicators are transmitted on the physical layer in a unique way. Besides the PREAMBLE indicator that designates the first byte of a network frame, the START, END and WAIT indicators are used for, for example identifying start or end of a channel frame (CF) within the network frame. A channel frame is a frame that is transported on a channel within the network frame. The indicators shall be generated as specified in Annex B.
8.1.1 DLL — General
The allocation channel is used to allocate or de-allocate bandwidth in the source data area. Whenever a node intends to make use of network frame bytes in the source data area, it allocates those bytes in an allocation request. An arbitration mechanism allows getting access to bytes that are not yet in use.
