   Today I did the same test without these 2 oscillators. The stddev on
20141228 data is 149ps. The stddev of today is 97ps. According to the new
datasheet, stddev will be lower if set to 45ps resolution mode. I did that
and got 76ps stddev. The datasheet does not lie to me :).

  Data is uploaded to

The configuration of tdc-gp22 is now:
    Register_0 = 0x00c42700,
    //Register_1 = 0x19498000, //stop2-stop1
    Register_1 = 0x01418000,//0x01418000, //stop1-start,
    Register_2 = 0xe0000000,
    Register_3 = 0x00000000,
    Register_4 = 0x20000000,
    Register_5 = 0 << 27,
    Register_6 = 1 << 12;
