Tektronix RTX100B ISDB-T and ISDB-TB RF Signal Generator with MTXS01 (ISDB-T Remultiplex Software).

SKU: TEKRTX100B Categories: , Tag:


The RTX100B ISDB-T and ISDB-TB RF Signal Generator offers a flexible, affordable solution for design evaluation and conformance testing of digital video products conforming to the Integrated Service Digital Broadcasting-Terrestrial (ISDB-T) standards for digital terrestrial TV systems. The RTX100B provides the capability to record and play out MPEG-2 transport streams, and modulate the up-converted RF signal.

In the digital terrestrial broadcasting environment, with applications from fixed to mobile and portable reception, powerful signal generation functionality is required in a portable form factor for design, test, and maintenance.

The RTX100B includes the modulator and up-converter as standard, and can directly output the RF modulated signal. This removes the need to have a separate transport stream generator, modulator, and up-converter to generate the RF test signal. The RTX100B can output test signals from Transport Streams to modulated RF in a half-rack 3u portable unit. DVB-SPI and ASI interfaces are provided as standard, allowing recording and playout of MPEG-2 Transport Streams.

The RTX100B takes the Transport Stream transmission parameters and uses these to modulate and up-convert to RF. The RTX100B can modulate either directly from a real-time ASI input, or from a Transport Stream stored on disk.

The RTX100B is the best tool for design and evaluation of consumer ISDB-T and ISDB-TB equipment, such as set-top box, televisions, car navigation systems, and cellular phones, as these devices require a direct modulated RF input. It is possible to use the RTX100B as a signal source for end-to-end broadcast system evaluation and maintenance.

The RTX100B offers continuous, error-free transport stream looping for long-duration playout, and PCR jitter insertion for stressing designs. Users can continuously loop all sample streams, including updating of all time stamps, continuity counters, time tables, and ISDB-T Reed Solomon FEC, without fear of buffer under- or overflow.
