Obtaining 'time_spec' from Out-of-tree C++ Module

Dear All,

I would like to have knowledge of the USRP time in my transmitter flow
graph. In the receiver flow graph this is straight forward because
‘rx_time’ tag is propagated from a USRP source as a tag.

How can I obtain the time_spec from a c++ block in my transmitter flow
graph?

“usrp_sink_impl.cc” has the function

::uhd::time_spec_t
usrp_sink_impl::get_time_now(size_t mboard)
{
  return _dev->get_time_now(mboard);
}

But how can I call this from outside the usrp_sink block?

Many thanks!

David

Hello David,

as get_time_now is a public function of usrp_sink, it is accessible from
everywhere :slight_smile:
You’ll need a (shared) pointer to that usrp_sink;using that, you can do
something like
uhd::time_spec_t now = my_usrp_sink->get_time_now();
You could, for example, take an usrp_sink::sptr as an argument for your
block’s constructor and store that reference to use it later in your
work()
function.

Greetings,
Marcus

Hi Marcus!

Great, I thought it was a public function, just wasn’t sure how to get a
pointer to it.

uhd::time_spec_t now = my_usrp_sink->get_time_now();

Sure thing.

You’ll need a (shared) pointer to that usrp_sink

I am not clear how I obtain that (to then I pass it to my C++ module as
a constructor?)

Regards,

David
