DMB-TH Reference Design

The use of this design is governed by, and subject to, the terms and conditions of the Intel Design Example License Agreement.

Overview

DMB-TH is a Chinese digital terrestrial television standard, GB20600-2006, for transmitting SD and HD television. The platform is based on a Stratix® II FPGA. The Stratix II FPGA provides the heart of the baseband digital signal processing (DSP) for channel coding, modulation and filtering that are required to meet the GB20600-2006 standard.

Features

  • Framing structure
  • Channel coding
  • Digital QAM modulation
  • PN sequence frame header for fast synchronization and highly efficient channel
    estimation / equalization
  • LDPC FEC coding
  • Supports payload data rates of 4.813 Mbps to 32.486 Mbps
  • SDTV and HDTV
  • Mobile and stationary transmission
  • MFN and SFN
