  • Keys - defined in key.h, this set of functions provides an interface to poll the keyboard on the radio.
  • Watchdog - defined in dog.h, this small library provides functions to configure an trigger the radio's watchdog timer.
  • Mute - defined in mute.h, this small library provides functions to control the audio muting on the radio.
  • Log - defined in log.h, this provides functions for error and status logging.

The Libreciva library contains, in most cases, two sets of source files, the first being for the radio itself, and the second being for an NCurses Development environment.
