Newtec Satcom OD6000 Satellite Demodulator Board

OD6000 Demodulator

The Newtec OD6000 demodulator board is a state-of–the-art, high-end professional DVB-S2X demodulation solution that’s able to process data rates up to 190 Mbit/s and operate in high-order modulation up to 64APSK. Available to third party manufacturers under OEM agreement, the high performance OD6000 is the best solution for the demodulation of DVB-S/S2/S2X carriers in IRDs.

In its default configuration, the demodulator board is capable of demodulating an MPEG2 transport stream in DVB-S, DVB-DSNG and DVB-S2/S2X. The Multistream, VCM modes of DVB-S2/ S2X are also supported. Only one Transport Stream out of a multistream carrier can be output, by defining the ISI marker of the selected stream. The OD6000 R2.1 has a 4 x L-band input (950-2150 MHz). The active input is selectable and can provide DC power and frequency band selection signals compatible with most professional and commercial LNBs.

The demodulator board delivers an MPEG transport stream on a parallel DVB-SPI output. If the demodulated carrier is a multistream signal, the OD6000 R2.1 can filter and output one of the transport streams, and the ISSY (Input Stream Synchroniser) mechanism as defined in the DVB-S2(X) standard is activated to recover the initial data rate. Alternatively, the board can output the Baseband frames on the same parallel DVB-SPI output.

To compensate for linear distortion in the transmission channel, the OD6000 R2.1 is equipped with an adaptive equalizer.

The demodulator board can be controlled via an I²C link with a comprehensive range of monitoring and control functions.

Clean Channel Technology is available on the demodulator. Clean Channel Technology further improves satellite efficiency by up to 15% compared to the DVB-S2 standard.
