ACAM TDC - Time to Digital Converters Replace Traditional Analog Solutions
Digital Circuits for Time Measurement in the High Resolution - Pico Second Range
Acam produces advanced time to digital converter circuit chips for a wide range of industrial, military, medical and consumer applications.
System-on-Chip Solutions with TDCs
Modern measurement technologies require small sensors with complete front ends with chip integrated circuitry. When the circuit is digital it reduces the total system costs. This is the Acam advantage. We offer single-chip solutions that include the time to digital converter itself, along with all the function necessary for measurement generation.
TDCs - Time-to-Digital Converters
The term time-to-digital converter is used when talking about time interval measurements in the range of 1 nanosecond down to the picosecond range.
The first time to digital converters were developed for research and science as a combination of time-to-analog (TAC) and analog-to-digital (ADC). Complexity and limitations of that method did not offer viable industrial time measurement solutions.
Single Chip Solution for Digital Time Measurement
Acam's integrated digital to analog TDC and CMOS-technology offers a single chip complete time to digital circuit. This advanced chip design realizes high resolution time measurement - to pico second range. Acam circuits offer a large dynamic range to 30 Bit and a high temperature stability. These circuits are highly efficient, consuming ultra low current for the supply voltage. This combination of factors delivers a lower cost production and higher grade of accuracy than traditional time-to-analog (TAC) and analog-to-digital (ADC) methods.
