Recently, there has been a growing research interest towards multichannel Time Correlated Single Photon Counting systems. To break the tradeoff between number of channels and performance that currently affects available systems, we have proposed an approach based on resource sharing and on the exploitation of different technologies. Here, we present a new standalone high-performance Time-to-Amplitude Converter featuring a timing jitter of 4.3ps rms and a DNL lower than 1% rms. The area occupation is 0.2mm2 , the power dissipation 70mW and the conversion rate 13.7MHz, making this circuit suitable to be the building block of a densely integrated, high-performance system.

Abstract

Recently, there has been a growing research interest towards multichannel Time Correlated Single Photon Counting systems. To break the tradeoff between number of channels and performance that currently affects available systems, we have proposed an approach based on resource sharing and on the exploitation of different technologies. Here, we present a new standalone high-performance Time-to-Amplitude Converter featuring a timing jitter of 4.3ps rms and a DNL lower than 1% rms. The area occupation is 0.2mm2 , the power dissipation 70mW and the conversion rate 13.7MHz, making this circuit suitable to be the building block of a densely integrated, high-performance system.
