Abstract

A personal computer-based system for measuring the distribution of time intervals between pulses is described. The system is distinguished by its simplicity, using only one counter in a configuration that counts and writes 16 time intervals to the memory. The dead time between channels is given by two clock periods (limited by the circuits used to 80 ns) and the maximum number of channels is 4095. Results are presented for the case of recognition of a periodic signal in noise.
