DVB-S2 Demodulator

DVB-S2 demodulation


Digilogic DVB-S2 Demodulator is a low-complexity high-performance solution that allows for symbol rates of up to 30MSymb/s on state-of-the-art KU035, KU040 and KU060 FPGAs. DVB-S2 is the next generation satellite transmission standard. It is purely a digital baseband core.
