Currently, various semiconductor manufacturers develop silicon solutions for DVB-H receivers. One of the key functions in a DVB-H receiver is the link layer. In order to differentiate, manufacturers can choose between basic or advanced link-layer implementation concepts, resulting in modest or excellent performance. This paper presents the required validation and verification tools for evaluating the DVB-H link-layer robustness, capable of generating and analyzing extreme signal conditions. Furthermore, we also discuss an advanced analysis tool required to inspect the output IP-based data, service information and program specific information of the link layer. The earlier simulation results for improved link-layer performance presented by the tools are validated from a newly developed silicon implementation.
