Cloud-ready digital converters DBDC (RF-downlink) and DBUC (RF-uplink).
Cloud-ready Digital Converters DBDC & DBUC
WORK Microwave’s Virtual Ground Station (VGS) has two main units for digitalization of RF signals:
- DBDC: Digital Block Upconverter (for uplink line)
- DBUC: Digital Block Downconverter (for downlink line)
DBDC receives antenna signals from LNA (or LNB) directly in the input and converts them to digital packets. It does block down conversion from RF to digital baseband.
At the output, the digital baseband signals are transported as IP packets in DIFI (Digital Intermediate Frequency Interoperability) standard to the V-series software modem.
DBUC receives digital baseband signals as IP packets in DIFI standard from the V-series software modem and converts them to RF signals. It does block up conversion from digital baseband to RF.
At the output, the RF signals are sent to the HPA for amplification and uplink to the satellite.
