Overview

DVB-RCS (Digital Video Broadcast - Interaction channel for satellite distribution systems) is an established ETSI standard for digital data transmission via satellites. It uses a 8-state double-binary turbo decoder that has an excellent error correction performance. This outstanding performance of the DVB-RCS turbo decoder makes it the ideal candidate for further applications where high spectral efficiency is key for lowering costs.
