DVB-C2 (Digital Video Broadcast - Cable 2nd Genera- tion) is an ETSI standard of the second generation for dig- ital data transmission via cable networks. It complements the existing standards DVB-S2 and DVB-T2 for satel- lite and terrestrial communication and offers a capacity- approaching coding scheme. The Creonic DVB-C2 IP core integrates the forward er- ror correction as defined by the standard (including LDPC and BCH decoder).


  • -compliant with ETSI 302 769 V1.2.1 (2011-04) (DVB-C2)
  • -support for short and long blocks (16,200 bits and 64,800 bits)
  • -support for decoding of L1 signalling part 2 data
  • -support for all interleaving schemes of all modulation schemes
  • -support for all LDPC and BCH codes as defined by the standard

Device Utilization and Performance

-support for all modulation schemes (16-QAM, 64-QAM, 256-QAM, 1024-QAM, 4096-QAM)
