Abstract

Specifics  of  event  timing  data  transmission  are  experimentally investigated under conditions typical for  multi-channel  data  acquisition  from  a  large  quantity  of  signal sources.  The  events,  in  the  considered  case,  are  analog  input signal  and  sinusoidal  reference  function  crossings.  The
sequences of the crossing time instants represent the respective analog  input  signals  and  these  sequences  have  to  be transmitted  to  the  signal  reconstruction  subsystem.  An experimental  system  for  fast  short-distance  transmission  has been  built.  It  performs  data  encoding  on  the  basis  of  digital pulse  position  modulation  with  10  picoseconds  resolution.  The achievable data encoding resolution and other vital parameters characterizing  data  transmission  systems  of  this  type  were evaluated on this basis.
