Finding the optimal sample clock phase

Some time ago we talked about the advantages of synchronizing the digitizer sample clock to the laser.  Our new system incorporates an on-board PLL multi-phase clock that allows Scanbox to automatically measure the contrast in a test image as a function of sample phase delay and select the optimal value for your setup. A typical measurement…
