The CORDIC deals with phase, not frequency, so there is no concept of
frequency resolution for it. The one being used in the USRP has 14 bits
of PHASE resolution.
Frequency resolution is controlled by the NCO, or phase accumulator. In
our case it has 32 bits of resolution. 64 MHz/2^32 is your frequency
resolution in Hz.
