DVB-S2 Receiver Using Software-Defined Radio

This example shows how to capture Digital Video Broadcasting Satellite Second Generation (DVB-S2) waveforms using the software-defined radio (SDR) device. The example then shows you how to perform synchronization, demodulation, and decoding of the received waveform, and measure the packet error rate (PER). To generate and transmit DVB-S2 waveforms, see the DVB-S2 Transmitter Using Software-Defined Radio example, and configure your test environment with:

  • Two SDR platforms connected to the same host computer. You must run two MATLAB® sessions, one for transmission and another for reception.

  • Two SDR platforms connected to different host computers. You must run a MATLAB® session on each, one for transmission and another for reception.


For this example, use the comm.SDRuReceiver or sdrrx System object™ to receive data corrupted by over-the-air transmission at a sample rate of 2 Msps. The receiver design consists of matched filtering, symbol timing synchronization, frame synchronization, and carrier synchronization. To decode the physical layer (PL) frames, the receiver recovers the physical layer transmission parameters such as modulation scheme, code rate, and forward error correction (FEC) frame type from the PL header. To regenerate the input bit stream, receiver decodes the baseband (BB) header. Every baseband frame is a concatenation of user packets. The receiver returns the cyclic redundancy check (CRC) status of each packet is returned along with the decoded bits, and then measures the PER.

If you don't have an SDR device to capture the waveform, this example supports importing a file with a captured waveform.

This diagram summarizes the reception process.


For details on receiver design, see the End-to-End DVB-S2 Simulation with RF Impairments and Corrections example.

This example supports these SDRs for capturing the waveform.

  • ADALM-PLUTO (requires Communications Toolbox™ Support Package for Analog Devices® ADALM-PLUTO Radio)

  • USRP™ B200/B210/N200/N210/USRP2 (requires Communications Toolbox Support Package for USRP™ Radio)

Download DVB-S2 LDPC Parity Matrices Data Set

Load a MAT file containing DVB-S2 LDPC parity matrices. If the MAT file is not available on the MATLAB® path, use these commands to download and unzip the MAT file.

if ~exist('dvbs2xLDPCParityMatrices.mat','file')
    if ~exist('','file')
        url = '';

Example Setup

To receive a waveform off the air, set useSDR to true. To import a waveform from a MAT file, set useSDR to false.

useSDR = false;

Specify the filename of a precaptured waveform to the fileName variable.

fileName = "capturedDVBS2Waveform.mat";

If you set useSDR to true, configure the variables required for SDR reception.

if useSDR
    rxsim.DeviceName = "B200";
    rxsim.RadioCenterFrequency = 915e6;
    rxsim.RadioGain = 20;

Initialize Receiver Parameters

At the receiver, you first perform DC offset compensation, followed by automatic gain control (AGC), symbol timing synchronization, and then frame synchronization, in order. The receiver algorithms include coarse and fine frequency impairment correction algorithms. The preferred loop bandwidth for symbol timing and coarse frequency compensation depends on the Es/No setting. If the captured signal is buried under noise, you can reduce the loop bandwidth to filter out more noise during acquisition. The number of frames required for the symbol synchronization and frame synchronization depends on the loop bandwidth setting.

Set rxParams.symbSyncLock to ceil(1e5/rxParams.plFrameSize) for signals heavily corrupted by noise. For signals whose SNR is less than 1 dB, set rxParams.frameSyncLock to a value in the range of [5, 15] frames. Set these fields of the rxParams structure for synchronization processing. Set valid values for fecFrame, modCod, Fsamp, and Rsym, for proper capture and validation of the demodulated signal.

fecFrame = "short";                             % DVB-S2 FECFrame type
modCod = 24;                                    % 32APSK 3/4
Fsamp = 2e6;                                    % Sampling rate in samples per second
Rsym = 1e6;                                     % Symbol rate in symbols per second
sps = Fsamp/Rsym;

rxParams = getRxParams(fecFrame,modCod);
rxParams.carrSyncLoopBW            = 1e-3;      % Coarse frequency estimator loop bandwidth normalized by symbol rate
rxParams.symbSyncLoopBW            = 1e-4;      % Symbol timing synchronizer loop bandwidth normalized by symbol rate
rxParams.symbSyncLock              = 2;         % Number of frames required for symbol timing error convergence
rxParams.frameSyncLock             = 1;         % Number of frames required for frame synchronization
rxParams.sps = sps;
% Total frames taken for symbol timing and frame synchronization to happen
rxParams.initialTimeSync = rxParams.symbSyncLock + rxParams.frameSyncLock;

Synchronization and Data Recovery

To synchronize the received data and recover the input bit stream, process the distorted DVB-S2 waveform samples one frame at a time by following these steps.

  1. Apply DC offset compensation to remove any DC components.

  2. Apply AGC to normalize the input signal amplitude.

  3. Apply matched filtering, outputting at a rate of 2 samples per symbol.

  4. Apply symbol timing synchronization using the Gardner timing error detector (TED) with an output generated at the symbol rate. The Gardner TED is not data-aided, so you can perform before carrier synchronization.

  5. Apply frame synchronization to detect the start of frame and to identify the pilot positions.

  6. Estimate and apply coarse frequency offset correction.

  7. Estimate and apply fine frequency offset correction.

  8. Estimate and compensate for residual carrier frequency and phase noise.

  9. Decode the PL header and compute the transmission parameters.

  10. Demodulate and decode the PL frames.

  11. Perform CRC check on the BB header. If the check passes, recover the header parameters.

  12. Regenerate the input stream of data or packets from BB frames.

Further Exploration

  • Transmit a DVB-S2 waveform by using the DVB-S2 Transmitter Using Software-Defined Radio example. You can then decode the waveform using this example. In the companion example, try changing the FECFrame and MODCOD, and observe the detected PL parameters decoded in this example.

  • For details on how to configure the synchronization parameters of the rxParams for other configurations, see the Further Exploration section of End-to-End DVB-S2 Simulation with RF Impairments and Corrections example.
