Rohde & Schwarz and SatixFy to demonstrate wideband DVB-S2X beam hopping and DVB-RCS2 at Satellite Show 2023
Beam hopping provides a simple straightforward solution to the problem of adapting satellite resources to demand. It allows an increased aggregate capacity by plus 15 percent while reducing the unmet and excess capacity by 20 percent. The use of beam hopping is particularly appealing for future LEO constellations since it lowers on-board satellite power consumption, and it allows the implementation of half-duplex waveform to reduce user terminal costs and its power consumption as well. Rohde & Schwarz and SatixFy cooperate to develop test equipment and multi-beam SDR modem ASIC beam hopping ready, based on the DVB-S2X standard with DVB-S2X superframes and DVB-RCS2 waveforms.
SatixFy Israel, a company specializing in developing and selling SDR baseband chips, modems and electronically steered multi-beam antenna and Rohde & Schwarz, a leader in T&M solutions, are demonstrating during Satellite 2023 Show the wideband 1000 MHz DVB-S2X software defined radio (SDR) modem ASIC equivalent to 8 VSAT modems in a single chip in a common test setup.
