KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany. Creonic GmbH, provider of satellite communication IP cores in Kaiserslautern, Germany, is introducing its FMC board with L-band RF input, enabling the development of satellite receivers with throughputs of up to 800 megabits per second (Mbit/s). The new release complements Creonic’s portfolio of IP cores covering a wide range of standards for satellite communications (SATCOM), such as DVB-S2X, DVB-RCS2, or CCSDS.
The Creonic FMC board is compliant with the VITA 57.1 FMC standard, can be used with high pin count (HPC) as well as low pin count (LPC) connectors, and is compatible with any FPGA FMC carrier board that can work with 1.8V low power IOs.
The receiver board includes an L-band tuner chip that can choose from an arbitrary center frequency within the L-band (925 – 2,250 MHz). The baseband bandwidth is programmable from 40 to 100 MHz. The used dual-channel 12-bit ADC allows for sampling rates of up to 250 MHz of I/Q data. It is possible to control LNBs with the integrated DiSEqC block. The board offers flexible clocking capabilities.
The PCB comes with an FPGA reference design for Xilinx FPGAs in VHDL, C++ software firmware, as well as comprehensive documentation.
Creonic is an ISO 9001:2008-certified provider of ready-for-use IP cores for several algorithms of communications, such as forward error correction (LDPC and Turbo coding), synchronization, and MIMO. The company’s product portfolio covers standards like DVB-S2X, LTE-A, 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.
