Lessons learned with an external clock / USRP1 interface

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

In order to use even a high-priced SDR for GSM experimentation, an accurate clock source is indispensable. According to the GSM standard, a clock with "absolute accuracy better than 0.05 ppm for both RF frequency generation and clocking the timebase" is required. This means that with a standard USRP1 with...
