ams – New TDC offers industry-best combination of speed, precision and power

ams has launched a new version of its Time- to-Digital Converter (TDC) offering improved speed and precision together with low power consumption.

TDCs from ams, which can measure short time intervals with great precision, are widely used in Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) and laser-ranging devices, in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) medical scanners, and in automated test equipment. The introduction of the TDC-GPX2 means that these applications can benefit from increased resolution up to 10ps and a new high sampling rate of up to 70Msamples/s.
