In this project I will be receiving two optical inputs from a tunable laser. As well as a Data valid signal that will indicate if my circuit should read inputs when valid or if the signal is not valid my circuit should hold until a valid signal is reapplied to avoid false zero crossings. The output of my circuit should be a digital signal that has a rising or falling edge when the two optical inputs have a zero crossing. This output will be a clock trigger that will input into the optical receiver of the overall optical coherence tomography system. Overall the system will be an optical to electrical converter that outputs a clock trigger to the receiver.
