TDC1000-TDC7200EVM User’s Guide (Rev. A)


This guide details the use of the TDC1000-TDC7200EVM evaluation module (referred to as EVM for the remainder of this document). The TDC1000 analog-front-end (AFE) is an Integrated Circuit (IC) for Time-of-Flight (TOF) applications operating with ultrasound frequencies up to 4MHz.The TDC7200 is a Time to Digital Converter (TDC) that performs the function of a stopwatch and measures the elapsed time between up to five events. The EVM can be used for many time-of-flight applications such as gas, water, and heat flow meter, fluid level detection, concentration and fluid identification, and proximity or distance measurements. The EVM allows for two ultrasonic transducer connections, and two RTD connections for temperature measurements. It uses the on-board MSP430F5528 to process data and a user-friendly GUI interface to display the data.
