Time Stretch Enchanced Recorder (TiSER)

The underlying mechanism of the time-stretching technology is to exploit optical dispersion in fiber to spread different spectral components over time.  This allows for a slowing down of an RF signal before digitization.

This allows the signal to be processed by a lower speed digitizer, as low as 1.5 GHz, and still achieve 40 GHz signal processing with 8 ENOB.
