Overview

The Commsonic DVB-T Modulator (CMS0009) allows exploitation of this technology by allowing the development of the DVB-T modulator in low-cost FPGA implementation. Applications include CCTV, wireless home networking, and test equipment. The CMS0009 core is intended to provide a very efficient Altera FPGA implementation of all functions required to take the output from an MPEG-2 transport multiplexer and modulate it according to the DVB-T modulation for 2K, 4K, and 8K COFDM modes as well as hierarchical transport systems. For more up-to-date information about this core, please visit our website - http://www.commsonic.com/products/dvb_t_mod.htm
