That is also what I like to understand, and when combined with a FE 5680A  
the time will be long and should be averaged over 100 if not 1000 samples, 
what  is the advantage? Look at the error budget.

What is it these u-blox device can do that a  cheaper Motorola Oncore
can't?   Depending on the version the  Oncore has for 50 to 5 nS
one-sigma error on the timing pulses and can do  either 1PPS or 100PPS.
Single unit prices are from $18 to $60 very  good documentation is

If the u-blox was somehow much  better than a Trimble thunderbolt or
Motorola Oncore MT12T I'd buy one even  at the above price.   But
really these older GPSs are already at  the single digtit of
nanoseconds level and I don't see room for improvement  except....

If the L2 band is also used.   This is the way to  get order of
magnitude improments
