DVB-S2X Wideband Demodulator  

The Creonic DVB-S2X Wideband demodulator is a low-complexity high-performance solution that allows for symbol rates of up to 500 MSymb/s on state-of-the-art FPGAs. DVB-S2X is the next generation satellite transmission standard which is an extended version of its well-established predecessor DVB-S2. The new specification allows for spectral efficiency gains of up to 50% by offering lower roll-off factors, higher modulations and a finer code rate granularity compared to DVB-S2.







  • Satellite communication (Digital Video Broadcasting, Interactive Services, News Gathering, Professional Services)
  • Nanosatellite and CubeSat devices

Standard Features the Core Supports

  • Compliant with ETSI EN 302 307-1 V1.4.1 (2014-11) (DVB-S2) and ETSI EN 302 307-2 V1.1.1 (2014-10) (DVB-S2X).
  • Supports CCM, ACM and VCM modes
  • Support for QPSK up to 256-APSK
  • Support for short blocks (16200 bits) and long blocks (64800 bits)
  • Optional support for Annex M (time-slicing)
  • Output of XFECFRAMEs for further processing by the Creonic DVB-S2X FEC decoder IP core


   Your Benefits


  • Validated against 3rd party DVB-S2X modulators
  • The demodulator contains radio interface, decimator, timing recovery, equalizer, frame acquisition, and carrier recovery
  • Demodulator performs and supports spectrum inversion, DC offset correction, I/Q imbalance correction, decimation, coarse frequency estimation, timing recovery, matched filtering, downsampling, frame synchronization, PL descrambling, fine frequency correction, phase correction, automatic gain control, and PL deframing

  • Low-power and low-complexity design.
  • Very fast synchronization due to different sets of filter coefficients for acquisition and tracking mode
  • Perfectly fits to the Creonic DVB-S2X LDPC/BCH decoder
  • Available for ASIC and FPGAs (AMD Xilinx, Intel)
  • Deliverable includes VHDL source code or synthesized netlist, VHDL testbench, and bit-accurate Matlab, C or C++ simulation model
