Data Transceiver for LNB Cable
This circuit was designed and used to transmit commands over LNB coaxial cable. An LNB (or LNC) is a low-noise block downconverter typically used for satellite TV reception. It’s fitted in the focal point of a satellite dish. The circuit is based on generating a modulated signal on the bus which can be decoded by a tone decoder IC like the familiar LM567 from National Semiconductor.
