Re: [chrony-users] GPS/PSS hardware

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Hi, thanks for all the comments feedback, I am thinking on building something like this: with an ODROID-C2. 

Regarding the configuration, how do you configure your pool of servers?

You use something like

    server your-ip-2 iburst prefer
    server your-ip-3 iburst prefer

Or how you keep them sync, all the clients will use server my-pool.tld but wondering mainly about the servers it self.

Thanks in advance..

Yes, this is totally possible and the equipment ect. does exist.....but what may I ask is the difference between hooking equipment "x" up to your server and having a raspberry PI attached to it......?

You are still going to have to hook up some equipment regardless, correct....or am I missing something....

I have the exact build you describe from uptronics below, (although I use the newer much smaller GPS they have on offer) and it works very well.....

If you have any questions about my setup I would be more than happy to answer but for around $100 usd it's hard to beat....

Hi, I would like to build/test a stratum-1 server, I have found articles about how to do that with a raspberry PI and boards

But wondering if there is hardware/devices that could be attached via USB and connect to an existing server.

USB is possible but not ideal. The interrupts are soft interrrupts (ie done by
sending signals on the usb in software rather than some hardware line.) Best
is if your system has some hardware line (eg serial port or parallel port) to
use. Of course that depends on what kind of accuracy you want. If it is ms
then a serial to usb converter will certainly work, and even just the GPS
signal on the usb might be fine. If it is sub-ms you want, then a hardware
interrupt is needed.
Or your desktop server might already have a serial port, and you can use that.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.
