Abstract
Marine Sensor Networks (MSN) and ocean
observatories are complex data acquisition systems where in
many cases, synchronized acquisition is needed between the
different networked nodes. In the development of OBSEA
project, (EMSO CAC-2007-09) [1] distributed acquisitions
nodes based in low power embedded systems have to be
synchronized. This paper presents the evaluation results
obtained using IEEE 1588 [2][3] standard as the
synchronization protocol for the networked acquisition
devices and a IM3220 microprocessor based embedded
system.
