Hardware Roadmap

Initial Proof of Concept based on Time Card for PPS measurement


Integrate Time Card timestamping for data collection and export

Potential Future Solutions

Core Hardware Objective
#1 TDC Small, cheap, and low power use-case
#2 PTM controller A PCIe based daughter card that can be synchronized with a high stability source (Time Card) over PCIe to scale PPS measurements
#3 UWB A method for distributing GPS and time to areas where measurements are made, but GPS is not available
#4 DPLL A discrete design based around a DPLL , removing the need for an FPGA
