USRP External clocking

Hi All,

Is any modification needed to the USRP board to use an external clock
generator instead of the on board 64MHz one?

Thanks!

And there is another way of clocking if you want to solder on an SMA
connector instead, connect an external clock, and disable the onboard
clock.

A trivial search of the Wiki, or the mailing list, should be executed
before simple and common queries like this.

wiki search: http://gnuradio.org/trac/search
mailing list via Nabble: http://www.nabble.com/GnuRadio-f1878.html

(the answer is in a FAQ on Wiki and all over the mailing list)

Hi Dan,
Thank you for the links. I already did that research, so I could have
written my email differently…

I just wanted the confirmation that all the following modifications are
required to use an external clock source (In the Wiki is on the section
about connecting multiple USRP boards so I just want to be sure…)

  • Solder an SMA connector into J2001. This is the clock input.
  • Move R2029 to R2030. This disables the onboard clock. R2029/R2030
    is a
    0-ohm resistor.
  • Move C925 to C926.
  • Remove C924.

Thank you!
