The Creonic DVB-RCS2 high performance modulatorperforms all tasks of a Modulator. The modulator ex-pects PDU frames as input and performs energy disper-sal, CRC encoding, turbo encoding, mapping, framingand modulation. In addition, the core performs basebandfiltering and output gain adjustment. The output of thecore is designed to be followed by a DAC.


  • •Compliant with DVB-RCS2 •Support for Pi/2-BPSK, QPSK,8-PSK, and 16-QAM •Support for all linear burst modulationwaveforms specified in Annex A •Output
