The two device are not clock syncronized.My end goal is clock syncroniztation & ranging.The true problem is if it’s possible to compute the time difference between an incoming sample and a outgoing sample from USRP. This is critical since i have to compute the time elapsed (due to calculation & delays from Linux) between the received echo and the outgoing reply. I suggested a method to do this task, can it work?ThanksThis might be possible to do if both devices have access to the same and very accurate clock, e.g. GPS.What is your end goal?

Hello.I need to implent a two way ranging. A device send an “echo”, a second device discover the “echo” and send a reply, then the first device can calculate the distance. For a correct distance evalutation, the second device must calculate the time elapsed between the discover of the first echo and the reply response.Let’s assume that the second device is a SDR with gnu radio & USRP1 device.The problem is: how to time-correlate the streaming sample received from the USRP and the streaming sample transmitted to the usrp.If i pre-fill the usrp transmit buffer with dummy data (preventing underflows) before starting acquisition&transmission, then i can correlate the two streams, right? (Yes, with the hypothesis that i don’t miss data from usb).Thank you
