The Creonic DVB-S2X high performance wideband demodulator performs all tasks of an inner receiver and achieves throughputs of up to 500 Msymb/s on state-of-the-art FPGAs. The demodulator expects the quantized, complex baseband samples from an analog-digital-converter (ADC) and recovers timing, frequency and phase of the complex mapped symbols. In addition the core handles PL frame recovery and PL de-framing. The output of the demodulator perfectly fits the Creonic DVB-S2X forward error correction IP core that implements LDPC and BCH decoding.
