What is the theoretical time precision achievable using a dCFD algorithm ?
E. Delagnes
The time precision achievable using standard analog methods is well known. Several expressions for timing methods using digitized signals have been recently proposed in workshops, conferences or training courses. Most of them are only partially exact. This paper presents a comprehensive calculation of the timing precision for algorithms using digital treatment of digitized signal to mimic analog discriminator-based methods. The results of these calculations are discussed for various cases of correlation between samples.
