Paper Abstract

The systems presented in this paper are based on phase-shift measurement. The first solution developed here is the heterodyne technique associated with direct counting. An improvement of the system consists in using digital PLL to reduce the phase noise. A second technique based on under-sampling technique, applied to digital synchronous detection, is described. Its main advantage is a global simplification of the electronic system, leading to a quite simple development of a twofold modulation system. This new technique is also very interesting to move towards a kind of smart range finder able to adapt different parameters to the different steps of the measurement.
