DVB-S2 (Digital Video Broadcast – Satellite 2nd Generation) is an ETSI standard of the second generation for digital data transmission via satellites. It was published in 2005, being the first standard of the second generation DVB standards (DVB-S2/DVB-T2/DVB-C2). Because of its capacity-approaching forward error correction, today DVB-S2 is the de-facto standard in satellite communication and other applications. The Creonic DVB-S2 IP core integrates the forward error correction as defined by the standard (including LDPC and BCH decoder).
