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.
