Kaiserslautern, Germany, Oct. 25, 2018 – Creonic GmbH, the market leader in Satellite Communications IP cores, announced today, the general availability of its latest IP core. The DVB-RCS2 modulator allows to implement a return channel over satellite and provides the capability to operate in MF-TDMA systems. The company is happy to share that it has signed multiple license agreements for this core.
The DVB-RCS2 modulator expects PDU frames and provides a ZF baseband signal that can then be further processed by an upconverter. It covers energy dispersal (scrambler), CRC encoder, turbo encoder, framer, mapper to BPSK, QPSK, 8-PSK and 16-QAM symbols, baseband filter and gain control. Sending PDU frames at user-defined times depending on the network clock is possible.
The modulator supports all linear modulation burst waveforms as specified in Annex A of the DVB-RCS2 specification. Spread-spectrum linear bursts will be available soon. Symbol rates beyond 160 Msymbols/s are possible on state-of-the-art FPGAs.
Creonic is an ISO 9001:2015 certified provider of ready-for-use IP cores for several algorithms of communications such as forward error correction (LDPC, Turbo, Polar), modulation, and synchronization. The company offers the richest product portfolio in this field, covering standards like 5G, DVB-S2X, DVB-RCS2, DOCSIS 3.1, WiFi, WiGig, and UWB. The products are applicable for ASIC and FPGA technology and comply with the highest requirements with respect to quality and performance. For more information please visit our website at
