A new type of sampling error corrector for a time- to-digital converter (TDC) having a multiphase reference clock and a binary counter is demonstrated. With this corrector, sampling errors caused by asynchronous TDC inputs are corrected without requiring additional counters or reclocking circuits. A TDC having the corrector is implemented in 90-nm CMOS logic technology. It has 13.6-ps/least significant bit resolution and 13-bit input dynamic range. It consumes 18 mW from a 1.2-V supply and occupies a 100 × 210 μm2 chip area.
