1. A signal measurement system for measuring relative timing of signal events in at least one measurement signal, said signal measurement system comprising:

  • input circuitry for receiving a measurement signal, wherein said input circuitry is configured to convert the measurement signal into a timing signal indicative of selected events of the measurement signal, wherein said timing signal is characterized by a first frequency level;

    signal splitting circuitry configured to receive the timing signal from said input circuitry and to split the timing signal a predetermined number of times and to generate at least first and second datastreams characterized by a second frequency, said second frequency being lower than said first frequency; and

    measurement circuitry for obtaining measurements between selected events in said at least first and second datastreams.
