Are timestamps global or stream-specific?

Are timestamps in the LimeSuite API global to the entire device, or does each stream have its own timestamp counter?

If the timestamp counter is global, does it start when the LimeSDR is powered up, when the device is initialized, or some other time?

Hello @alephdivbyzero,

from the FPGA gateware side there is one timestamp counter which is started each time when RX stream is enabled and reset when RX stream is disabled. Samples from TX stream are synchronized to same RX timestamp counter.
