I could provide some help here, by providing the schematics and firmware
for having a microcontroller do the pulse timing part. The schematics
should be extremely simple, and easy to build in a breadboard (no
soldering required) with standard parts from electronics resellers.

With a hardware solution we could measure the *actual* target latency
with sub-microsecond accuracy, and do some fun stuff too, like
triggering the pulse at random intervals in a given range, etc.

The microcontroller would then connect to the logger (or the HOST in
your setup, and avoid an extra computer) through a serial port to report
the measurements.

Is this something that could be useful, or do you think this is just
overkill?
