[ntp:questions] Symmetricon bc635PCI-U

There have been a few implementations of a refclock driver for the bc635/637PCI cards. (-U indicates universal signaling for pci, 635 is the base model type and 637 indicates gps version).  There has also been a strong pushback for years now against allowing a new driver into the distribution.  To be honest, I'm not sure what's out there now but I don't see one in the list.  Having said that, if you don't hear otherwise, I'll make you one but I don't know if it will be maintained in the ntp distro.

We have a system for Linux that need precise time for time stamping application.
The bc635PCI-U (or bc637PCI-U) card have a driver package for Linux that contains a kernel driver which allows the board to be used as a reference time source for the NTP daemon? This turns the computer nto a NTP time server which can also provide accurate time to other NTP clients on the network.
