It basically timestamps transitions on all 8 inputs. The post processing software that looks a the timestamps is what selects either 1 channel (single mixer+offset generator) or 2 channels (dual mixer time difference)
The counters in the FPGA are running at 100 MHz, so they have a basic resolution of 10 ns.
