A family of photon counting and timing systems ranging from the world's smallest and lowest cost photon counting device, the PCDMini, which is optimized for high volume commercial OEM applications, to the world's first intelligent multi-channel photon counting and timing system, the PCMPlus, with an integrated counter, timing electronics and USB interface. SensL is the first to include high end microprocessing power inside its low light sensing modules. Controlled via a Java based graphical user interface SensL's products can be directly integrated into low light sensing applications without the need for additional counting cards or data analysis software. An example of the benefit of this integration is evident in the PCMPlus, which integrates high level functionality such as Time Tagging with 2.5ns resolution, Time Binning Multi-channel Scalar/Averager (MCS/ MCA) and Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC) into a single convenient plug and play system. The new HRMTime introduces a <100ps timing resolution option in addition to the other PCSTime functionality described above.
SensL’s HRM-TDC is a portable, highly functional timing system providing flexible, easy-to-use timing functions. The HRM-TDC has four channels, each with 27ps timing resolution and a maximum data rate of 4.5MHz over high- speed USB 2.0 to the host computer. The system also comes equipped with 16 general-purpose, user-configurable I/O ports and a programmable TTL clock output.
The HRM-TDC system architecture combines a high performance timing module with a high-end FPGA, on-board memory and a high-speed USB 2.0 interface. The FPGA is the heart of the system and controls all aspects of operation in addition to performing commands from the external host computer. It uses a proprietary communication protocol for communication with the host PC running either the SensL Integrated Environment (SIE), or the users own application built using the SensL DLL. The SIE, DLL and LabView drivers are provided for the system.
