GENEVA, Aug. 17, 2012 — A time-to-digital converter (TDC) has been launched by ID Quantique SA. The id800-TDC is an eight-channel TDC that is used to transfer the time tags of registered events to a PC with picosecond precision and high speed. It can count single- and multiple-channel coincident events at even higher rates internally and convey those to a PC. The id800-TDC registers incoming signal events on eight independent channels, records their exact time (bin size 81 ps) and channel number and communicates them to a PC. A graphical user interface is supplied for Windows and Linux, and software examples are available for C/C++ and Labview.
