USRP2 latency calculations

I foud this wery usefull:
http://www.gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/UsrpFAQ/Latency

Is there similar calculations about the latency of the USRP2?

If there is not, could someone please do those calculations?

Hi,

If USRP2 can respond to PING and reply back, then one should be able to
measure the delay.

Hi,

Wouldn’t one be able to use for instance “set_freq()” or find() as a
messure? Although there might be some overhead, you will receive an “ok
I have set the freq”/“Ok here I am”- packet from the usrp2. Although one
could think of more elaborate schemes involving a special OP_CODE
(usrp2_eth_packet.h)…

Cheers

I did some preliminary measurements a while ago. A round trip from
the host to the USRP2 and back was taking about 47us. It mostly
depends on how much data you’ve queued for transmission on the
ethernet. YMMV.

set_freq would not be a good measure, since it takes a while to
configure the daughterboard. find() isn’t great either, since it
waits 10ms to ensure that it’s gathered all responses to it’s
broadcast.

set_rx_decim should give a reasonable measurement, as long as you’re
not streaming data.

BTW, I also have code which can be run which actually measures the
latency on USRP1, rather than just theoretical calculations that you’ve
found on the wiki:
https://www.cgran.org/wiki/ArchitectureLatencyMeasurements

It uses pings and some modifications to the Linux kernel to measure
latency from host->kernel->USRP, etc.
