Overview

The CMS0025 DVB-S2 / -S2X (A)PSK modulator is an integrated modulator and channel-coder core designed specifically to address the requirements of the ETSI DVB-S2 forward-link satellite standard (EN302307) including the DVB-S2X extensions. The core can operate in CCM and VCM/ACM modes and is fully compliant with the standard. For further or more up-to-date information about this core, please visit our website - http://www.commsonic.com/products/SDvbS2Modulator.htm

Features

  • Compliant with DVB-S2 (EN 300 307-1) and DVB-S2X (EN 300 307-2)
  • Support for CCM, VCM and ACM modes.
  • Variable sample-rate interpolation provides ultra flexible clocking strategy.
  • QPSK, 8PSK, 16APSK, 32APSK, 64-APSK, 128-APSK and 256-APSK support.
  • Integrated LDPC Channel Coder.
