Creonic Starts Wideband Satellite Initiative with Launch of New DVB-S2X IP Cores

DVB-S2XKaiserslautern, Germany, Apr. 28, 2017 – Creonic GmbH, the market leader in satellite communication IP cores, today announced the launch of multiple IP cores for wideband satellite communication, satisfying current and future requirements of nanosatellites as well as high-throughput satellites (HTS).

The extended IP core product portfolio covers:

The IP cores are based on Creonic’s field-proven solutions for DVB-S2X. They are optimized to operate at symbol rates of up to 500 Msymb/s, resulting in data rates as high as 4 Gbit/s for 256-APSK. Even for low SNR environments, up to 1 Gbit/s throughput is possible with QPSK modulation. The IP cores are capable of processing two I/Q symbols per clock cycle, which allows to realize these high throughputs even on state-of-the-art FPGAs.

The DVB-S2X modulator IP core expects baseband frames and provides I/Q samples ready for processing by customer’s DAC. The wideband DDC converts a digitized IF signal into a ZF baseband signal for bandwidths of more than 500 MHz. The ZF baseband signal is then further processed by the DVB-S2X demodulator and the DVB-S2X LDPC/BCH decoder.

The wideband DVB-S2X modulator and DDC IP cores will be available in the second quarter of 2017, while the wideband DVB-S2X demodulator and decoder will be available in the third quarter of 2017, respectively.
