LinkStar: The RCST (Return Channel Satellite Terminals)

The remote RCST (Return Channel Satellite Terminal) is a small VSAT consisting of an IDU (indoor unit) and an ODU (outdoor unit). The ODU consists of an antenna (90cm, 1.2m, 1.8m or 2.4m) and an RF power amplifier and low noise receiver.

The IDU is an integrated unit. The MPEG-2 stream is recovered from the outbound signal by an integrated circuit consisting of a DVB demodulator and demultiplexer. This logic demodulates the outbound signal and the demux recovers the IP packets and time-stamps encapsulated in the MPEG-2 stream, which are then delivered to the external network via a 10/100 Base-T interface.
