buffer_element Union Reference

Datatype for the FIFO buffer.

This is a union of all the datatypes which the FIFO service supports. The purpose of this type is to allow for the buffer length (in elements) to be specified instead of the size (in bytes), making it easier to ensure that the buffer is large enough to contain the specified number of all datatypes.
