Intel® CE 6313
DVB-S Demodulator
Overview Technical Documents

Intel® CE 6313 The Intel® CE 6313 DVB-S demodulator meets the performance requirements of the European Broadcast Union ETS 300421 and DirecTV* specification for DSS. The device integrates an innovative state machine controller with a dual ADC, QPSK demodulator and high-performance Viterbi and Reed/Solomon decoder in a compact 7x7mm package. Capable of supporting high-level, command-driven software, the Intel CE 6313 DVB-S demodulator provides high-speed 1 to 45 Msps scanning capability, simplifies programming, reduces software overhead on the processor, and optimizes the user interface. The range of clocking modes and flexible transport-stream interface provide compatibility with a wide range of MPEG decoders. The Intel CE 6313 DVB-S demodulator also features very low power consumption, including software/hardware power-down modes for Energy Star* requirements.
Product information
Satellite receiver application
Intel supports the Intel® CE 6313 DVB-S demodulator with two reference designs that include the Intel® CE 5037 DVB-S PayTV* and Intel® CE 5039 DVB-S Free-to-Air* silicon tuners. These two reference designs enable you to quickly evaluate and implement the DVB-S/DSS standard for your application. Each board includes complete documentation and test results, with software supported directly by Intel.

Intel's DVB-S/DSS reference designs offer excellent signal-handling performance at very low power consumption. The Intel CE 6313 DVB-S demodulator with Intel CE 5037 tuner is optimized for the PayTV market segment where signal-intermodulation performance, quality and reliability is of prime importance. The Intel CE 6313 DVB-S demodulator with Intel CE 5039 solution is optimized to address the additional harsh signal-sensitivity performance requirements of the Free-to-Air market.

The Intel CE 6313 DVB-S demodulator accepts the classic I and Q input signals, digitizes, demodulates and carries out DVB-S/DSS forward error correction (FEC) and descrambling. The Intel CE 6313 DVB-S demodulator has a range of clocking modes and transport-stream interface options to provide a fully flexible interface to MPEG decoder products. The onboard state machine allows high-speed 1 to 45 Msps auto-blind scan capability achieving Astra high-band scanning of both polarizations for 20-30 Msps channels in less than 22 seconds.
