We present a low-power Time-to-Digital Converter (TDC) module that provides 10 ps timing resolution, DNL better than 1.5% LSB and 160 ns dynamic range within a compact 6 cm x 6 cm x 8 cm housing. The USB link to the remote PC allows the easy setting of measurement parameters, the fast download of acquired data, and their visualization and storing via an userfriendly software interface. The module is suitable for a wide variety of applications such as: FLIM, FRET, TOF ranging measurements, TOF PET, DOT, OTDR, quantum optics, etc.

Abstract

We present a low-power Time-to-Digital Converter (TDC) module that provides 10 ps timing resolution, DNL better than 1.5% LSB and 160 ns dynamic range within a compact 6 cm x 6 cm x 8 cm housing. The USB link to the remote PC allows the easy setting of measurement parameters, the fast download of acquired data, and their visualization and storing via an userfriendly software interface. The module is suitable for a wide variety of applications such as: FLIM, FRET, TOF ranging measurements, TOF PET, DOT, OTDR, quantum optics, etc.
