Time-to-Digital Converter for Timing-Measurement Applications

July 25, 2007 10:30 am | Keysight Technologies | Product Releases | Comments

Agilent Technologies introduced the first time-to-digital converter (TDC) from its Acqiris product line, featuring six independent stopwatches for precise timing measurements from a common start event to multiple stop events at a high resolution. The TC890 is appropriate for time measurement applications, including laser detection and ranging (LIDAR) for 3D mapping and navigation, fluorescence lifetime spectrometry, and ion counting in time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS). Many pulse-timing measurements, such as period, frequency and time interval analysis (TIA), are suitable for the TDC's precise measurement technology.
