Digital Converters for Time Measurement in the High Resolution - Pico Second Range
Acam produces advanced time to digital converters for a wide range of industrial, scientific, medical and consumer applications.
System-on-Chip TDC Solutions
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 for modern times.
Single Chip Solution
Acam's integrated digital 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 time to digital converters offer a large dynamic range to 30 Bit and a high temperature stability. These time to digital converters are highly efficient, consuming ultra low current for the supply voltage. This design delivers a lower cost production and higher grade of accuracy than traditional time-to-analog TAC and analog-to-digital ADC methods.
