Improved efficiency of nonius-pulse time-digital converters59_12.pdf

The article deals with two methods, both methods are implemented in two versions, reducing the additional conversion time to (first options) and (second options) times of non-pulse-time-to-digital converters (TDC). In both methods, the conversion process is organized according to the interpolation scheme, it contains the conversion scales “roughly”, “precisely” and “more precisely” and two (start and stop) recirculation generators. The whole number of follow-up periods Тstr that filling the duration of the converted time interval (TI) of the start one (in the first cases) or multiphase (in the second cases) recirculation generator RGstr is initially “roughly” determined in the course of the interpolation conversion. Then the nonius-pulse method - “exactly”, with discreteness < Tstr, digitizes that part of the converted TI, which is enclosed between the last recorded impulse of the RGstr and directly the end of the converted TI. Further, the direct encoding method - “more precisely”, with the discreteness of the conversion , encodes the TI, the duration is less than the value . Moreover, in both methods, a single-phase stop recirculation generator RGstp is used. The hardware implementation of the first method is based on the use of a single-phase RGstr and a separate direct-coding (DC) module, which only performs the “more accurate” conversion and does not participate in the “rough” and “exactly” conversions. Whereas in the second method, the DC TDC, through its multi-tap delay line, is introduced directly into the RGst, transforming it into a multiphase generator, which forms single-phase reading scales “roughly”, “exactly” and a multiphase scale “more precisely”, which ensures a decrease in of the instability of the discreteness of the transformation “exactly” and “more precisely”. The use of multiphase RGstr makes it possible to eliminate the problem of pairing (docking) of all three conversion scales.
