What is the "board" for the BoardID?

Would a capture file using this LINKTYPE_ include all traffic between the host and the sniffer, including the host-to-sniffer packets such as REQ_FOLLOW?  (I assume from "UART" that this goes over a serial link between the sniffer and the host.)

Is there a publicly-available page on the Nordic Semiconductor Web site with this format information, or should we add a page on the tcpdump.org Web site, as is done for some other LINKTYPE_ values?
