Hugo Vincent commented on Phil P's blog post SF02 Laser "Altimeter" review
"The datasheet for the ASIC on your website suggests it should be possible to extract an expanded timebase "image" of the returned waveform. This could be useful for disambiguating between top of trees and the ground (in your example) for…"
