Differences between USRP2 rev 3 and rev 4 boards

I am wondering what are the differences between the USRP2 rev 3 board
and the rev 4 board?

I have one of each (one I ordered maybe a year ago and one I ordered
this past summer), and I don’t see any differences on the board itself.
I understand that the versions of the FPGA image and the firmware that
shipped on the SD card from the factory would be different, since over a
year of time elapsed between my purchasing the two boards. But what else
is different? I can’t find a changelog for the USRP2 boards anywhere.

Thanks for your help everyone.

Some clocks were reorganized for layout reasons and the PPS input
circuit was modified to have a more consistent delay. The same FPGA
image works for both.

For now it doesn’t do anything. If you’d like to connect it in the
verilog you are welcome to.

Paint it red, and label it “Do Not Push This Button” :slight_smile:

What’s the push button for?
