HDLC controller

Project Description

HDLC controller written in Python and based on the python4yahdlc Python module to encode and decode HDLC frames.


With pip (recommanded)

pip3 install hdlcontroller

From sources

git clone
cd python-hdlc-controller
python3 install


To create a new HDLC controller instance, you need to call the HDLController class with two parameters :

hdlc_c = HDLController(read_func, write_func)

The first parameter is a function used to read from the serial bus while the second parameter is a function to write on it. For example, using the pyserial module :

ser = serial.Serial('/dev/ttyACM0')

def read_serial():

hdlc_c = HDLController(read_serial, ser.write)

To start the reception thread :


To send a new data frame :

hdlc_c.send('Hello world!')

And to get the next data frame received available in the HDLController internal queue :

data = hdlc_c.get_data()

The get_data() method will block until a new data frame is available.

Finally, to stop all the HDLController threads :
