DVB-RCS2 Multi-Carrier Receiver

DVB-RCS2 (Digital Video Broadcast – Second Generation DVB Interactive Satellite System) is the latest ETSI standard of the second generation for digital data transmission via satellites.The Creonic DVB-RCS2 Multi-Carrier Receiver IP core supports multiple frequency time domain multiple access (MF-TDMA), performs all tasks of an DVB-RCS2 receiver including carriers separation, baseband conversion, demodulation, and turbo decoding. It can process intermediate frequency (IF) real signal with center IF frequencies between 0 and 100 MHz.

The Creonic turbo decoder is included in the receiver to provide users with Frame PDUs at the output.
