Coincidence counting modules (CCM) are a central part of experiments on quantum optics. However, the cost attached with a typical CCM renders them inaccessible for many undergraduate labs. A typical CCM would include Time-to-Amplitude Converters (TACS), a Nuclear-Instrumentation module (NIM) and a bin to house them. The costs add up to around 10000$. Our proposed design drastically lowers the cost by employing fast logical AND Gates. Moreover, by employing logical gates the effect of dead time can also be minimized.
