ID Quantique has introduced its new time-to-digital converter, the id800-TDC. The id800-TDC is an eight-channel time-to-digital converter. The system is used to transfer the time-tags of registered events with picosecond precision and at high rates to a PC.

Additionally, it can count single and multiple channel coincident events at even higher rates internally and convey those to a PC. The id800-TDC registers incoming signal events on eight independent channels, records their exact time (bin size 81ps) and channel number and communicates these to a PC. A graphical user interface is supplied for Windows and Linux; software examples are available for C/C++ (Windows and Linux) and Labview.
