Instrumentation and Measurement - Workstream #6

Time Appliances Project

Objective

Open source ecosystem for instrumentation and measurement software and tools. Scalable, reliable, cost-effective and efficient.

Project Team

- Lead: Anand Ram (Calnex)
- Lead: Julian St James (Meta)

Recording from Past Calls

Hardware Roadmap

Initial Proof of Concept based on Time Card for PPS measurement

Software

Integrate Time Card timestamping for data collection and export

Potential Future Solutions

1. TDC based design, targeting small and cheap use-case. 2. PTM based design, to synchronize multiple measurement daughter cards with a high stability source over PCIe 3. UWB based design, targeting locations where GPS is not available at point of measurement 4. DPLL based design, targeting non-FPGA use case
