Function Documentation

void ethos_send_frame ( ethos_t dev,
const uint8_t *  data,
size_t  len,
unsigned  frame_type 

This is used by e.g., stdio over ethos to send text frames.

[in]frame_typeframe type to use
void ethos_setup ( ethos_t dev,
const ethos_params_t params 

The supplied buffer must have a power-of-two size, and it must be large enough for the largest expected packet + enough buffer space to buffer bytes that arrive while one packet is being handled.

E.g., if 1536b ethernet frames are expected, 2048 is probably a good size for buf.
