Efficient Channel Coding Demonstrates Multi-Stream Feature Using DVB-S2 Receiver Chip : Saves Cost and Circuit Board Space by Pulling Multiple Data Streams from Single DVB-S2 Input

Share Article

Efficient Channel Coding (ECC) has introduced a multi-stream extraction feature that enables its ECC3100 Digital Video Broadcast Satellite standard (DVB-S2) receiver chip to extract multiple data streams from a single DVB-S2 input. Embedding multi-stream soft-IP into the receiver FPGA eliminates the need to use multiple DVB-S2 application specific integrated circuits (ASICs), reducing circuit board size and cost. Multi-stream extraction is a valuable feature for manufacturers of professional broadcast receivers, Integrated Receiver Decoders (IRDs) and DVB-S2 to IP gateways used in broadcast and media content distribution applications.

ECC has tested and verified the DVB-S2 multi-stream receiver chip by extracting multiple MPEG transport streams from a DVB-S2 input waveform. The soft-IP fits into a Virtex4 LX40 FPGA in the ECC3100 evaluation board. The multi-stream soft-IP based code, when used together with ECC3100 chip, enables users to extract multiple data streams by setting the ECC3100 to the transport bypass mode. ECC can customize the number of streams in the soft-IP and assist customers in making the IP fit into the FPGA of their choice.

The multi-stream soft-IP product and design kit are available now, and orders are being accepted. For sales information contact info@eccincorp.com.

ECC provides real world digital communication technology for some of the most advanced networks, including satellite communication system design, broadband communication ICs, and customized commercial and government systems.
