ATSC-M/H Signal Generation Toolkit

The MAXEYE Technologies Signal generation software is an ideal test tool for generating test signals with different configurations and under different conditions. It can be used to completely test the receiver so as to characterize its performance during design, verification and manufacturing. The receiver's performance can be verified by analyzing BER at various stages (e.g. BER after demodulation, BER after inner decoding and BER after outer decoding).

This toolkit offers standard based test solution for designing, evaluating and manufacturing ATSC equipment's. ATSC standards are a set of standards developed by the Advanced Television Systems Committee for digital television transmission over terrestrial, cable, and satellite networks. ATSC digital television is published as an A/53 standard. Part 2 of the standard has specifications for the physical layer. ATSC-M/H (Advanced Television Systems Committee - Mobile/Handheld) is a standard in the USA for mobile digital TV, which allows TV broadcasts to be received by mobile devices). ATSC-M/H is published as an A/153 standard.

ATSC-M/H is an extension to the available digital TV broadcasting standard ATSC A/53. ATSC is optimized for a fixed reception in the typical North American environment and uses 8VSB modulation. The ATSC transmission scheme is not robust enough against Doppler shift and multipath radio interference in mobile environments, and is designed for highly directional fixed antennas. To overcome these issues, additional channel coding mechanisms are introduced in ATSC-M/H to protect the signal. ATSC-M/H is a service for mobile TV receivers and partly uses the 19.39 Mbit/s ATSC 8VSB stream.
