Flexible Analog Solutions from National Semiconductor for Wideband Range-Finding Applications
This article discusses sampling challenges faced in precision range-finding applications such as Radar and LIDAR systems. These systems work by generating an excitation pulse, and, at a minimum, measuring the time for the pulse to be returned. The exact time of waveform return and inherent knowledge about the speed of light, provide all of the information necessary to determine Time-of-Flight (TOF).
