DVB-T/H Modulator

  • Part Number: MVD_DVBTH
  • License: SignOnce
  • Vendor: Multi Video Designs
  • Ecosystem Program Tier: Member

Product Description

The DVB-T/H modulator modulates an MPEG-TS DVB-SPI input into a OFDM output in Intermediate Frequency (IF), according to EN 300 744 V1.5.1 standard.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Netlist version available for ISE and VIVADO
  • Full synthesizable RTL VHDL design (not delivered) for easy customization
  • Carrier Suppression > 45dB
  • MER > 42dB
  • Single / multi channel
  • Intermediate frequency output for single DAC (14 bits) or baseband outputs (2 x 16 bits)
  • Supports variable channel width 5MHz to 8MHz
  • Programmable Guard Interval (1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32)
  • Configurable support for 2k, 8k and 4k (DVB-H) OFDM modes
  • Programmable QPSK, 16-QAM and 64-QAM Symbol Mapping
  • Configurable in-depth interleaving for DVB-H
  • Configurable Convolutional Rate
  • Single channel, supports hierarchical transmission
  • PCR re-stamping (MFN mode)
  • Robust SPI input (discarding incorrect input packets)
  • MFN or SFN mode
