Dear DRS community,
starting from this year, we ship the new evaluation board V5. This board has an improved internal timing calibration, with which one can measure the time with a precision down to a few ps. Following picture shows the time between two pulses, obtained with a function generator, a passive split and a delay cable. The single threshold time estimator of the DRSOsc program obtains with such signal a resolution of 2.5 ps (RMS):
Using more sophisticated algorithms such as cross-correlation, resolutions below 1 ps were already achieved.
The new board can now be ordered at the same price than the V4 board, delivery will start in March 2014.
