Title (EN) A TIME-DIGITAL CONVERTER AND AN ELECTRONIC SYSTEM IMPLEMENTING THE CONVERTER
(FR) CONVERTISSEUR NUMÉRIQUE TEMPOREL ET SYSTÈME ÉLECTRONIQUE METTANT EN ŒUVRE LE CONVERTISSEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A time-digital converter (100) comprising: an adjustable delay device (D1; DN) for generating a delayed signal (S1) provided with a delay adjusting input (5), and an arbiter device (FF1) for receiving the delayed signal and a reference signal (So) on corresponding inputs and for supplying an output signal (SD1) to an output (O1) indicative of a relative timing of the signals at its inputs. The converter further comprises: a calibration delay device (Dbm) for supplying the reference signal to the arbiter device, and a calibration filter (F1) connectable to said output (O1) for providing input (5) of the adjustable delay device with a delay adjusting signal (S21) depending on the output signal of the arbiter device.
(FR) Un convertisseur numérique temporel (100) comprend : un dispositif de retard réglable (D1; DN) permettant de produire un signal retardé (S1) doté d'une entrée de réglage de retard (5), et un dispositif arbitre (FF1) permettant de recevoir le signal retardé et un signal de référence (So) sur les entrées correspondantes et permettant de fournir un signal de sortie (SD1) à une sortie (O1) indiquant une temporisation relative des signaux à ses entrées. Le convertisseur comprend en outre : un dispositif de retard d'étalonnage (Dbm) permettant de fournir le signal de référence au dispositif arbitre et un filtre d'étalonnage (F1) pouvant être connecté à ladite sortie (O1) afin d'appliquer à une entrée (5) du dispositif de retard réglable un signal de réglage de retard (S21) en fonction du signal de sortie du dispositif arbitre.
