Time Tagger Series

The Time Tagger Series brings the power of software-defined data acquisition to your lab. It is an incredibly flexible time-to-digital converter equipped with a streaming architecture and a versatile software engine. You can use it for almost any type of digital data acquisition measurement, including various flavors of time-correlated photon counting.

Key hardware features

  • time resolution down to 3 ps (RMS jitter)
  • minimum bin width of 1 ps
  • 8 or 18 fully equivalent input channels, up to 144 in sync mode
  • detect rising and falling edges
  • provides a built-in logic analyzer
  • supports all common SPADs, PMTs, and SNSPDs

Key software features

  • auto-correlation, cross-correlation, multiple-start-multiple-stop histograms
  • run various measurements simultaneously
  • implement your research ideas in no time: benefit from virtual channels, such as sums and coincidences
  • work with a modern web-application, native libraries in Python, Matlab, LabVIEW, C++, C#, .NET, and Mathematica
  • supported operating systems: Windows 7 & 10, Linux (Cent OS and Ubuntu)
