You've heard of ADC. You've heard of DAC. Have you heard of TDC?
Time-to-Digital Converter (TDC):
Time-to-digital converters precisely measure the time between events and output a digital count. You would reach for one of these for a design that needs to measure time-of-flight (ultra-sonic, lidar, radar, etc). However, many more uses can be implemented with a TDC. They pair exceptionally well with flux capacitors.
