0004 // This is an excerpt from QIE10/QIE11 TDC specifications (by T. Zimmerman):
0005 //
0006 // Special codes: Special code 62 is generated when the discriminator
0007 // starts high. Special code 63 is generated when the TDC discriminator
0008 // starts low and remains low (nothing happened). Special code 58 indicates
0009 // "Invalid Code". This can be caused by an SEU in the TDC encoder logic.
0010 // It can also happen in certain situations when the TDC is operated in
0011 // "Last Mode", as discussed above. Code 59 is generated if the either
0012 // of the Delay Locked Loops on the QIE10 (the Phase DLL or the TDC DLL)
0013 // are not locked. Code 60 is generated when the Phase DLL is unlocked
0014 // (but the TDC DLL is locked), and code 61 for the TDC DLL unlocked
0015 // (but the Phase DLL is locked). If either of the DLLs on the chip are
0016 // unlocked, this takes precedence over any TDC data that might be present,
0017 // and the appropriate DLL no-lock condition is reported.
0018 //
0019 // (end of Zimmerman's special code explanation).
0020 //
0021 // In addition, during normal operation, codes above 49 are not supposed
0022 // to happen. If, due to jitter or something, the upcrossing would happen
0023 // at TDC=50, it would be reported as TDC=0 in the next BX.
