Advanced Design of DSP-based High Precision Event Timer
Techniques for considerable advancing the precision and operational speed of event timers, based on the Enhanced Event Timing (EET) method, are considered. The method employs digital processing of analog signals that reflect the event positions. Emphasis is made on improving the generation of such signals, which, along with other technical enhancements of design, resulted in RMS resolution 3.5 ps and “dead time” 50 ns. In comparison with the previous event timer model based on the same method, the performance improvement is 2.5 times in terms of productivity factor characterizing the precision/speed ratio in a generalized form.
