A programmable timing unit (PTU) has been designed and constructed having 1 ns resolution and a generalized matrix-based architecture. Automated measurement and calibration of commercially available programmable delay lines achieve the 1 ns resolution. The matrix architecture allows generalized flexibility in establishing the connections between timing circuits called event markers and output functions that control equipment external to the PTU. The microprocessor-based PTU communicates with a… CONTINUE READING
