Hello,

I have query about ANT burst mode, I want to confirm that which mode of ANT BURST uses automatic retries and which does not. Here is a document which states ANT BURST uses automatic retires but it's not clear if this is classic and advanced mode of burst.

https://www.thisisant.com/resources/an04-burst-transfers/


Page 3/7:
In addition to the increased throughput advantage, ANT Burst mode uses acknowledged messages with automatic retries to ensure successful data transfer while maintaining a simple interface to the application MCU. As an exception however, single packet bursts are handled identically to an acknowledged message, and are not retried.

Thanks.

Retry applies to both burst and advanced burst transfers. See D00000652_ANT_Message_Protocol_and_Usage_Rev_5.1.pdf section 5.4.3 for details.
