LabVIEW NTP client

Recommended Posts


I was wondering if anybody had written an implementation of an NTP (Network Time Protocol) client in LabVIEW.

I am trying to figure out the best way to synchronize the RTC on the Blackfin processor to the network time.

Naturally I could just send a request to my host PC and get the time from there but there will always be the delay involved.

From what I've read in the RFC for NTP this delay is taken into account.

Thanks a lot. I had not seen this yet. This is exactly what I was looking for.

Note that this example does not do the network delay compensation that you said you're trying to avoid. It does pretty much the same thing as a request to your PC for the time, except it queries a more precise server much farther away.
