I am switching to a d flip flop and some and/nand gates.
I’ll bet I have not purchased a gate chip for >20 years.  

This way I will only have to do an output from the Pi ever 193 cycles.  

I can count clocks and then assert the correct output for that one cycle.  

The rest of the time the D flip flop will be just repeating the GPS.  

Once I get this working I am going back to the arduino to see if it is fast 
enough to take the place of the PI.  

Or, maybe I will go D flip flop crazy and do the whole thing in a finite state

Pretty sure you need  RTOS to accomplish this.That will get pretty close to 
bare metal.

  Had the command syntax wrong.
  But got nice to work.  Have to sudo if you use negative nice numbers.

  It made zero difference in my jitter.  I went from 19 to –20 on nice and no

  The problem is there is a crap ton of stuff out there that needs network 
sync.  And it all has a T1 as an input.
  But most T1 trunking circuits are getting replaced with SIP.

  So, I am building a cheap and dirty T1 signal generator that is GPS and 
rhubidium referenced.  The hard part is easy.  The easy part should be easy but 
all the T1 framing chips that used to exist no longer exist.

  The ones that are out there have massive CPU interfaces and tons of registers 
that need to get set to get them fired up and running....

  Where is Exar when you need them....

  Tell whoever's got the T1 that 1967 is way behind us and get a new interface.
  Problem eliminated LOL

    I have to generate an alternate mark inversion signal on 1.544 MHz with 
every 193rd bit following a t1 framing sequence.
    Sure wish a 555 could do that.

    Find a 555 timer ... I used many in the olden day when radioshacks were 
king LOL!

      I am thinking of using some shift registers instead of using the PI

      Use the PI to load them.  

      I love me some hardware design anyhow....

      Other than setting the process priority, you may need a custom kernel.

        Anyone know how to get my program to run on bare metal?

        Or at the very least tell Linux that my program is the most important 
thing in the world and service it above all other things.

        I am trying to create a timing signal with the Pi.  It is doing it but 
the jitter is pretty bad.  

        I have researched trying to use an interrupt but there is a pretty low 
limit on how many times per second you can fire a hardware interrupt.
        Too low for my application.
