Time to Digital Converter
TDC, time digitizer, time analyzer
Time-to-Digital converters are instruments measuring the arrival time of electronic pulses. It is customary to only use the term TDC if the time resolution is smaller than the time resolution achieved by straightforward counters. cronologic provides TDCs from 3ps to 1000ps resolution. Time can be measured with higher precision than other physical properties, therefore TDC-based setups are often used to indirectly measure other properties such as distance, mass, location, or dielectric capacity.
