Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TDC7201, TLV3501,
(This is a follow on question to the one I posted under "Amplifier design for lidar")
My team is designing a lidar using the reference design but with our own laser diode and transmitting optics as well as a detector/transimpedance amplifier combo.
Our proposed setup: Thorlabs PDA100A2 detector---> TLV3501 comparator--->TDC7201 evaluation board (connected to MSP430 launchpad)
We are planning on making a small custom PCB for the comparator with SMA connections to the detector and eval board but need to figure out the best way to power it (supply voltage and also the reference voltage of 25 mV). Is there a straightforward way to do this from the 7201 evaluation board (or launchpad?) or do we need another external voltage supply?
