Abstract

This article describes improvements in data transmission systems, and more particularly a method padding out the length of an information field of a transmission frame without regard to the code being used. Most modern data communication systems use the format and protocols of the ISO High Level Data Link Control (HDLC). Of particular note is the format of a transmission frame which is: F, A, C (Information field) FCS,F.
