Alessandro Rubini - Designing a low-cost time-to-digital converter


Published on

The workshop shows how to build hardware and firmware of a GPS-disciplined TDC device with microsecond precision, using a completely Free Software toolset. The TDC is a device that reports the timestamp of digital pulses for a number of input lines: the audience is accompanied through all the design choices that lead from the idea to a complete device, including performance measurement and analysis of different approaches for data transfer and calibration. The bravest attendees will be awarded with a physical TDC device, which unfornatuntely isn’t sharp enough to show that neutrinos are faster than light.

Note: the limited time frame doesn’t allow the whole code to be written from scratch during the workshop.
