Manchester code (phase encoding) library.
Manchester code (phase encoding) library
It implements Manchester code according to both IEEE 802.3 and G.E. Thomas' conventions.
- A '0' is expressed by a high-to-low transition, a '1' by low-to-high transition in the IEEE 802.3 convention. The reverse is true in the G.E. Thomas' convention.
- The transitions which signify '0' or '1' occur at the midpoint of a period.
- Transitions at the start of a period are overhead and don't signify data.
- Least significant bit is sent first
- There are synchronization pulses (the number can be set) at the begin of transmission
Select a convention to be used by commenting or uncommenting the line below in the
#define G_E_THOMAS 1
The IEEE 802.3 convention is used by default.
A Manchester encoded message (using G.E. Thomas' convention), with one sync pulse in the preamble, carrying four bytes:
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: The code in this library was based on this article published by Robert Guastella.
NOTE: To perform a simple test (without radio modules) connect the txPin on transmitter board to the rxPin on the receiver board and make sure that grounds are also connected one another.
