The unit is designed to be used in High Energy Physics beam-tests and provides a simple and flexible interface for fast timing and triggering signals at the AIDA pixel sensor beam-telescope.\\
The current version of the hardware is an evolution of the \href{}{EUDET-TLU} and the \href{}{miniTLU} and is shipped in a metal enclosure that includes an \gls{fpga} board, the \gls{tlu} \gls{pcb} and an additional power module: the \gls{fpga} is responsible for all the logic functions of the unit, while the \gls{pcb} contains the clock chip, discriminator and interface blocks needed to communicate with other devices. The power module contains programmable \gls{dac} to power photomultipliers and \gls{led} indicators.\\
The current version of the \gls{pcb} is \brd and is designed to plug onto a carrier \gls{fpga} board like any other \gls{fmc} mezzanine board, although its form factor does not comply with the ANSI-VITA-57-1 standard.\\
\section{Reference publication for the AIDA-2020 \gls{tlu}}
Please consider citing the \gls{tlu} reference paper in your publications. This will help us making a case to continue the support and development of the TLU.\\
The paper is available open access on JINST (Journal of Instrumentation):\\
