SCL3711: IOError no response from pn53x

Asked by Max86

I'm tryng to build a simple P2P data exchange between a Samsung Nexus (ICS 4.0.3) and SCM SCL3711 and now i'm trying to send data from the reader to the smarthphone.
I have already modified the script snep-test-client, following the answer to the question, but I can't understand why few times everything is working properly and sometimes the script generates the following error:

$ python -d nfc.llcp -d nfc.snep

enable debug output for module 'nfc.llcp'

    return self.recv_queue.popleft()
IndexError: pop from an empty deque

I thought about a timeout error related to the device or any related library, but I have not found any solution to this behavior.

Thanks for the help

Stephen Tiedemann (stephen-tiedemann) said :

"in exchange => IOError no response from pn53x"
This line basically says that there no response was received from the peer within the NFC-DEP waiting time. As NFC_DEP is handled by the PN53x, not much can be done in the software. Probably the best solution is to restart LLCP activation.

Can you help with this problem?
