I am currently working with CW and I have a question regarding the Simpleserial 2.0 protocol. Here it is said that each packet has a CRC of polynomial 0xA6 appended. Can someone point me to the notation used in here? The normal representation for CRC polynomials would give me x^8+x^7+x^5+x^2+x, which does not seem valid to me as it does not have the x^0 term. This information is required as I am working on my own serial protocol, and to validate data under simpleserial 2.0 I need to implement the correct CRC-8 calculation.
Thanks in advance for any help.
