Multi tapped delay line time-interval measurement system implemented in a programmable structure
AbstractThis paper describes a time-interval measurement system with increased resolution using multiple taped delay lines. In this time-interval measurement system, sixteen time-stamps are registered during a single measuring cycle (one shot). It means that the value of the measured time-interval can be interpolated with higher resolution without increasing the number of measurements or the interpolation time. Limiting the total measurement time reduces the energy consumption which is particularly important in battery powered systems.
