Highland Technology V980 16-Channel Time-To-Digital Converter

  • 16-Channel, 48-Bit, 48-Picosecond Resolution TDC
  • Adjustable Trigger Levels and Edge Polarity
  • Fast Readout Available 200 ns After Events
  • Jitter Typically Below 40ps RMS
  • Ultrastable, Ovenized Quartz Crystal Timebase
  • Optional Custom Internal Microengine


The V980 is a 16-channel time-to-digital converter used to record the time of occurrence of sixteen independent electrical pulse inputs, each measured relative to a single, common reference input. Each TDC input channel can time its event "hit" with 48.82-picosecond resolution and 48-bit dynamic range.

The module has provisions for adjustable input logic levels and selectable input edge polarity.

The V980 employs a highly linear interpolation technique, which requires a minimum of adjustments. Data is available within 200 ns of the completion of the measured time intervals, and the modules may be cleared and rearmed in less than one microsecond. All features are switch selectable.
