由高级电视系统委员会(ATSC)在1995年9月16日公布的数字电视标准规定了以例如在美国当前用于广播国家电视系统委员会(NTSC)空中广播模拟电视信号的6MHz带宽电视频道发射数字电视(DTV)信号的VSB信号。 By the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) digital television standard in 1995 September 16 announced the launch of the provisions of the order, for example, the bandwidth of 6MHz television channel in the United States is currently used for broadcast National Television System Committee (NTSC) analog-air broadcast television signals of digital television VSB signal (DTV) signals. 这些VSB信号与Citta等人描述的信号的不同之处在于，每一信号使用与其抑制载波同相的一个导频信号，而不是相差90°。 These difference signals VSB signal and Citta et al described that each pilot signal using a carrier with its inhibition of the pilot signal phase, rather than a difference of 90 °. 这些VSB信号中每一个包括一个接近电视广播频道的较低上频率边缘的残留边带，和从其频率向上延伸到该频道的上频率边缘的全边带。 The VSB signal each comprises a vestigial sideband frequency close to a lower edge of the television broadcast channel, and the frequency of the full sideband frequency edge extending upwardly therefrom to the channel.

本发明说明的问题在图1的方框图中一般表示出来。 Problem of the present invention is illustrated in FIG. 1 is a block diagram generally represented. 用参考标号10总体表示的DTV发射机通过一个选择的6MHz宽的电视频道广播一个DTV编码信号，用于调谐到该选择频道的一个相应DTV接收机100接收和重放。 DTV transmitter indicated generally by the reference numeral 10 through 6MHz television channel is broadcasting a wide choice of encoding a DTV signal receiver 100 for tuning to a corresponding DTV receiver and playback of the selected channel. 同时，一个NTSC发射机200通过在附近的电视服务区域内的同一频道广播一个NTSC编码信号。 At the same time, an NTSC transmitter 200 through an NTSC encoded signal in the vicinity of the service area of the television channel broadcasting the same. 取决于各种因素，包括其物理位置，DTV接收机100因此可能接收到除从DTV发射机10的发射天线20接收希望的信号之外还从NTSC发射机200的发射天线201接收具有相当强度的不希望的干扰分量。 Depends on various factors including its physical location, thus DTV receiver 100 may receive from the DTV transmitter other than the transmitting antenna 10 receives the desired signal 20 is also transmitted by the transmitter antenna 200 from NTSC 201 received considerable strength unwanted interference components. 由于不希望的干扰信号在和希望的DTV信号同一频道上发射，因此通常称为“同频道干扰”。 Since the undesired interfering signal is transmitted on the same DTV signal and a desired channel, it is often referred to as "co-channel interference." 在DTV接收机中的同频道干扰信号特别在使用全数字DTV发射标准的场合引起问题。 Co-channel interference in a DTV signal receiver of particular use in the case of transmitting digital DTV standards cause problems. 特别是，如果同频道干扰信号具有足够强度压倒接收机中的数字DTV信号的话，则接收机重放任何质量图像的能力完全受损。 In particular, if a digital signal of sufficient strength overwhelm DTV receiver co-channel interference signals, then the ability of any receiver replay image quality is completely damaged. 此外，DTV接收机的这一损害随干扰NTSC同频道信号的强度变化可能相当突然地发生。 In addition, the damage of the DTV receiver with co-channel NTSC interference signal intensity variations may occur quite suddenly. 这与模拟DTV系统不同，在模拟DTV系统中干扰NTSC同频道信号的强度变化引起接收机的信噪比性能上逐渐改变。 This DTV analog systems, analog DTV system co-channel interfering NTSC signal intensity variation cause gradual changes in signal to noise performance of the receiver.
如所周知，干扰NTSC同频道信号的频谱占据一个6MHz宽的电视频道，它包括一个亮度分量，一个色度分量和一个音频分量。 As is known, co-channel interfering NTSC spectrum signal occupies a 6MHz wide television channels, comprising a luminance component, a chroma component and an audio component. 亮度分量的带宽大约为4.2MHz并调制在距该频道一端1.25MHz的一个图像载波上。 The bandwidth of the luminance component is about 4.2MHz and modulated on a picture carrier of 1.25MHz from one end of the channel. 色度分量的带宽大约1MHz，调制在距图像载波3.58MHz的一个副载波上。 The bandwidth of the chrominance component of approximately 1MHz, the modulated subcarriers from a picture carrier of 3.58MHz. 音频分量调制在距该频道另一端0.25MHz(亦即距图像载波4.5MHz)的一个载波上。 Modulation on an audio component from the other end of 0.25MHz channel (i.e. 4.5MHz from the picture carrier) of a carrier. 同频道干扰的主要来源是相对大的NTSC图像载波及其编码同步信息的边带，以及高亮度图像分量彩色突发脉冲串，在高色度图像分量期间的色度副载波边带和FM音频载波。 The main sources of co-channel interference are the relatively large NTSC picture carrier and its sidebands code synchronization information, and a high-luminance image component of the color bursts, during high-chrominance image components and chrominance subcarrier FM audio sidebands carriers.
在同步间隔期间的NTSC图像载波尖峰提供最大能量的同频道干扰。 Providing the maximum energy peak in the NTSC picture carrier during a sync interval co-channel interference. 当使用梳状滤波抑制NTSC同频道干扰时，希望把梳状滤波设计为最佳抑制NTSC视频载波及其15734Hz的边带的假像(artifacts)。 When using comb filtering to suppress NTSC co-channel interference, it is desirable to design the optimum comb filtering to suppress NTSC video carrier and 15734Hz sideband of artifacts (artifacts). 色度突发脉冲只有NTSC图像载波尖峰在同步间隔期间能量的20％或更少。 Chroma burst is only 20% NTSC picture carrier energy spikes during synchronization interval or less. 梳状滤波可以抑制描述大面积图像的NTSC亮度和色度信号的假象。 Comb filtering to suppress artifacts may be described in a large area of the image NTSC luminance and chrominance signals. 由描述图像运动边缘的NTSC亮度和色度信号的假象引入的误差必须使用误差修正码修正。 Error introduced by the edge of the image motion artifacts described NTSC luminance and chrominance signals using the error correction code must be corrected.
虽然视频载波峰值调制的振幅被限制为大约7-10％，FM音频载波的振幅不变。 Although the amplitude modulated video carrier peak is limited to about 7-10%, FM audio carrier amplitude is unchanged. 这使得很难使用误差修正码修正由FM音频载波引入的误差。 This makes it difficult to error correction using an error correction code introduced by the FM audio carrier. NTSC音频载波的调频和调相使梳状滤波使用多个符号固定相位延迟的微分延迟，这对抑制NTSC音频信号的假象不实际。 NTSC audio carrier frequency modulation and phase modulation so that a plurality of comb filtering using a fixed symbol delay differential phase delay, which suppress NTSC artifacts of the audio signal is not practical. 调制信号在音频处改变和低超声速率提供在仅相距几个信号固定相位延迟的样本之间足够相关这一事实允许为ATSC信号使用12符号微分延迟梳状滤波器，使抑制NTSC音频信号的假象获得一定的成功。 Modulated audio signal and the change rate between a low ultrasound signal are only a few samples of a fixed phase delay associated fact sufficient to allow the use of 12 symbol differential delay comb filter is an ATSC signal, so that an audio signal to suppress NTSC artifacts with some success.
图2表示根据本发明的一个DTV发射频道的频谱。 Figure 2 shows the emission spectrum of a channel of the DTV of the present invention. 该频道6MHz宽，相应于一个发射VSB信号的NTSC发射频道，如图所示。 The channel 6MHz wide, corresponding to an NTSC transmission channel transmitting VSB signal, as shown in FIG. 更特别的是，在低于第一断点频率f1bp不大于距该发射频道的下频率边缘353KHz左右，发射频道显示振幅响应滚降22。 More particularly, the transmitting frequency channel at an edge below the first breakpoint frequency f1bp distance no greater than about 353KHz, transmission channel amplitude response rolls off the display 22. VSB信号具有基本平坦的振幅响应部分24，它从第一断点频率f1bp延伸到第二断点频率f2bp，距发射频道的下频率边缘略小于5,643KHz左右。 VSB signal having a substantially flat amplitude response portion 24 extending from a first breakpoint breakpoint frequency to a second frequency f1bp f2bp, from the edge of the transmission channel at a frequency slightly less than about 5,643KHz. 距发射频道下频率边缘1,250,00Hz处的一个同频道干扰NTSC信号的图像载波频率fpix处于由该基本平的振幅响应部分24包括的频率范围内。 A transmit frequency from a channel at the edge of 1,250,00Hz co-channel interfering NTSC signal picture carrier frequency fpix portion 24 is within a frequency range that includes a substantially flat amplitude response. 距发射频道下频率边缘4,829,545.5Hz的同频道干扰NTSC信号的色度副载波fsc也最好处于该频率范围内。 From a transmit frequency channel edge co-channel interfering NTSC 4,829,545.5Hz chrominance subcarrier signal fsc is also preferably within the frequency range. 在第二断点频率f2bp和第三断点频率f3bp之间，发射频道显示振幅响应滚降26，到基本平振幅响应部分24的振幅响应的一半，而从第三断点频率f3bp到第四断点频率f4bp作为另一基本平振幅响应部分28平分基本平振幅响应部分24。 Between the second and third breakpoint frequency f2bp f3bp breakpoint frequency, amplitude response of the transmission channel roll-off display 26, a substantially flat amplitude response to the amplitude response of the half portion 24, from the third to the fourth break point frequency f3bp as another f4bp breakpoint frequency amplitude substantially flat portion 28 substantially bisecting the flat section 24 in response to the amplitude response. 这一平分指的是调制程度，而不是能量。 This means that bisects the degree of modulation, rather than energy.
DTV信号的抑制载波频率fc和导频信号频率fp两者都在距发射频道下频率边缘略小于5734KHz处，将它们定位于NTSC图像载波频率fpix上面略小于285倍NTSC水平扫描频率fh处。 Suppressed carrier frequency fc and both the pilot signal DTV pilot signal frequency fp edges are slightly less than the frequency at 5734KHz from the transmission channel, they are positioned above the NTSC picture carrier frequency fpix slightly less than 285 times the NTSC horizontal scanning frequency fh. 之所以这样做是为了最好地容纳接收机100中的梳状滤波以抑制同频道干扰NTSC信号的图像载波频率fpix和色度副载波fc的假象。 This is done in order to best accommodate the receiver 100 comb filtering to suppress co-channel interference artifacts picture carrier fpix and chrominance subcarrier frequency fc NTSC signal. DTV信号的抑制载波频率fc和导频信号频率fp位于相应于基本平振幅响应部分28的频率范围的中心。 Carrier frequency fc and suppressed conductivity DTV signal frequency fp of the pilot signal is located substantially corresponding to the amplitude level of the center portion of the frequency range of 28 response. 基本平振幅响应部分28延伸以包括同频道干扰NTSC信号的调频音频载波fa及其相当大能量的调频边带。 Portion 28 extends substantially in response to the amplitude of the FM audio carrier fa comprises co-channel interference of the NTSC signal and the FM sideband considerable energy level. 相应地，第四断点频率f4bp位于距发射频道下频率边缘5,825,000Hz或稍高处。 Accordingly, the fourth break point frequency f4bp located slightly higher frequency or at a lower edge 5,825,000Hz from the transmission channel. 在第四断点频率f4bp之上，发射频道显示振幅响应滚降30。 Over the fourth breakpoint frequency f4bp, transmission channel amplitude response rolls off the display 30. 第三断点频率f3bp低于抑制载波频率fc的频率正如第四断点频率高于抑制载波频率fc。 F3bp third breakpoint frequency below fc is a carrier frequency suppressed as a fourth breakpoint frequency is higher than the carrier frequency fc suppressed. 在第二断点频率f2bp和第三断点频率f3bp之间的振幅响应滚降26设计为补全振幅响应倾斜30，使得当电视信号发射信号在接收机100中解调时，基带DTV信号具有一个从0频率向上到Nyquist采样频率fs的一半-亦即5,381,118.9的平振幅响应。 Amplitude between the second and third breakpoint breakpoint frequency f2bp f3bp frequency response roll-off 26 is designed to complement the amplitude response 30 is inclined, so that when the television signal is demodulated in the transmitting signal receiver 100, the baseband DTV signal having from 0 up to a half of the Nyquist frequency of the sampling frequency fs - i.e. flat amplitude response of 5,381,118.9. 发射机相位响应在从距发射频道下频率边缘低于353KHz左右处到振幅响应滚降30在高频能量减少到可忽略的频率之间的范围内保持为直线，使得分散的(absent)多路径现象在由接收机100解调的DTV信号分量中有一致的组延迟。 At a transmitter from the phase response from the transmission channel frequencies below about 353KHz edge roll-off in response to the amplitude is reduced to 30 to maintain a straight line within a range between the frequency of the high-frequency energy may be negligible, so that the dispersion (Absent) multipath phenomenon delay component 100 by the demodulated DTV signal receivers have the same group.
如美国专利，号码为5,087,975指出，频道的Nyquist带宽fs/2可以认为被等分为6部分，在同频道NTSC图像载波fpix和彩色副载波fsc之间的间隔相应于6部分中的4部分，亦即fsc-fpix＝(4/6)(fs/2)＝(4/12)fs＝(1/3)fs。 U.S. Patent Number 5,087,975 is indicated, the Nyquist bandwidth of fs channel / 2 may be considered to be divided into six parts, the spacing between the co-channel NTSC picture carrier fpix and color subcarrier fsc portion 6 corresponding to the portion 4, i.e. fsc-fpix = (4/6) (fs / 2) = (4/12) fs = (1/3) fs. Nyquist信号频率开始时假定为3倍的(fsc-fpix)＝3*3,579,545.5Hz＝10,738,636.4Hz。 Nyquist frequency is assumed at the beginning of the signal 3 times (fsc-fpix) = 3 * 3,579,545.5Hz = 10,738,636.4Hz.
与美国专利5,087,975所示的不同，在DTV信号的抑制载波频率fc和同频道NTSC图像载波fpix之间的间隔相应于6部分中的5部分，而不只是6部分中的1部分，在DTV信号的抑制载波频率fc和同频道NTSC彩色副载波fsc之间的间隔只相应于6部分中的1部分，而不是6部分中的5部分，亦即fc-fpix＝(5/6)(fs/2)＝(5/12)fs，和fc-fsc＝(1/6)(fs/2)＝(1/12)fs。 Unlike shown in U.S. Patent 5,087,975, the spacing between the carrier frequency fc and suppressing co-channel NTSC picture carrier FPIX DTV signal corresponding to the portion 6 of the section 5, rather than just a portion of the section 6, the DTV signal the suppression interval between the carrier frequency fc and a co-channel NTSC color subcarrier fsc only a portion corresponding to the portion 6, instead of 5 parts of section 6, i.e., fc-fpix = (5/6) (fs / 2) = (5/12) fs, and fc-fsc = (1/6) (fs / 2) = (1/12) fs.
图3表示DTV接收机100的基带响应。 3 shows a DTV receiver 100 the baseband response. 如图所示，DTV接收机的标称响应40在频道内基本是平坦的，容纳了fs/2的Nyquist带宽，而无衰减。 Nominal DTV receiver shown in FIG. 40 in response to the channel is substantially flat, receiving a Nyquist bandwidth of fs / 2, and without attenuation. 基带DTV信号最好由一个“同相”同步检测器响应于一个具有相应于抑制DTV载波fc的频率和相位的再生成载波而产生。 The baseband DTV signal is preferably by a "phase" in response to a synchronous detector corresponding to suppress regenerated carrier frequency and phase of the carrier wave fc DTV has generated. 在NTSC同频道信号出现时，检测器响应于再生载波也可提供一对干扰拍频信号，其频率基本相应于分别来自同频道NTSC干扰的色度副载波和视频载波的fs/12和5fs/12。 When co-channel NTSC signal is present, the detector responsive to the reproduced carrier also may provide an interference beat signal whose frequency substantially corresponds to the co-channel NTSC interference are from the fs chrominance subcarrier and the video carrier / 12 and 5 fs / 12. 干扰拍频信号在图3中分别用参考标号42和44表示。 Interference beat signal, respectively in FIG. 3 by reference numerals 42 and 44 represent. 另一个拍频信号46稍微高于0频率处，它作为NTSCFM音频载波的假象出现在“同相”同步检测器响应中。 Another beat signal 46 at a frequency slightly higher than 0, it appears as artifacts in the audio carrier NTSCFM "in-phase" sync detector response. 附加结合具有合适微分延迟的基带DTV信号的梳状滤波器，其响应为50，其内具有零点52、54和56。 Combined with suitable additional differential delay comb filters the baseband DTV signal in response to 50, 52, 54 and the inner 56 having a 0:00. 零点54接近中频道，它把中频道振铃响应减少到脉冲噪声。 0:54 close the channel, the channel in which the reduced ringing in response to impulse noise. 作为同频道NTSC干扰的色度副载波和视频载波假象的拍频信号42和44被梳状滤波器响应50中的零点52和56抑制。 As the co-channel NTSC interference and the video carrier chrominance subcarrier artifacts beat signals 42 and 44 are comb filter response and 0:52 56 50 inhibition. 后面还要详细说明，接收机100包括一个具有响应50的梳状滤波器，用以减少同频道干扰拍频的效果。 Also described in detail later, receiver 100 includes a comb filter 50 has a response, to reduce the effect of co-channel interference beat frequency.
ATSC数字电视标准使符号速率fs为NTSC水平扫描速率fh的684倍，以方便在NTSC和DTV编码信号之间的变换，如美国专利，号码为5,087,975所建议的。 ATSC digital television standard that the symbol rate fs 684 times the NTSC horizontal scanning rate fh to facilitate conversion between NTSC and DTV signal encoding, as described in U.S. Patent Number 5,087,975 is recommended. 相应地，附加结合微分延迟为6符号间隔的采样信号的线性梳状滤波器提供分别在接近拍频信号42和44频率处的陷波52和56。 Accordingly, in conjunction with additional differential delay is a linear comb filter 6 sampled signal symbol interval, respectively, provided near the notch frequency beat signals 42 and 44 at a frequency of 52 and 56. 由于NTSC水平扫描行精确具有684个符号，因此6符号延迟将比一个NTSC扫描行短114倍。 Since the NTSC horizontal scanning line having exactly 684 symbols, so a 6-symbol delay than 114 times NTSC scan line short. 具有频率为114*fh的假象在6符号期间具有一个完整周期，所以附加结合微分延迟6符号间隔的采样信号的梳状滤波器以1793706.3Hz的间隔出现陷波。 114 * fh having the frequency of the illusion of having a full cycle during a 6 symbols, the comb filter in conjunction with an additional sample signal 6 symbol interval differential delay occurred at intervals 1793706.3Hz the notch.
如果视频载波频率fpix准确落入位于(5/2)*1,793,706.3Hz的陷波，则DTV载波频率fc将在视频载波频率fpix上面(5/2)*1,793,706.3Hz处，亦即在该频道的下频率极限上面1,250,000Hz。 If the video carrier frequency fpix accurately dropped into the (5/2) * 1,793,706.3Hz notch, the DTV video carrier frequency fc at carrier frequency fpix the above (5/2) * 1,793,706.3Hz place, i.e. at the channel frequency limit above 1,250,000Hz. 这就是说，DTV载波频率fc将在该频道的下频率极限上面5,734,265.7Hz和在6MHz宽频道的上频率极限下面265,734.3Hz处。 That is, DTV carrier frequency fc the frequency limit above 5,734,265.7Hz at the channel frequencies and limits on the following 265,734.3Hz 6MHz wide channels. 这将把DTV信号载波频率fc置于和NTSC音频载波频率fa相距fh的水平频率处，以致即使其声音电路的调幅(AM)抑制很差，DTV信号载波在NTSC电视信号接收机中也听不见。 This will put the DTV signal carrier frequency fc and fa away from NTSC audio carrier frequency fh of the horizontal frequency, so that even if the sound amplitude modulation circuit (AM) poor inhibition, the DTV signal carrier not hear the NTSC television signal receiver . 解决这一问题的办法是，如果DTV信号载波频率fc具有和NTSC音频载波频率fa相距fh水平频率位移的话，则在NTSC同频道干扰信号中的立体声导频载波的第一上边带有助于影响DTV载波频率在DTV接收机中获得。 The solution to this problem is the first top if the DTV signal carrier frequency fc and has the NTSC audio carrier frequency fa fh apart horizontal frequency shift, then the stereo pilot in the NTSC co-channel interference signal carrier frequency with help influence DTV carrier frequency in the DTV receiver.

由ATSC数字电视标准规定的12个平行格栅码最好由6个平行格栅码代替。 Defined by the ATSC digital television standard code 12 is preferably replaced by a parallel grid 6 parallel grid codes. 然而，即使保持12个平行格栅码并使用具有12符号微分延迟的梳状滤波电路以抑制NTSC同频道干扰假象，但是把DTV载波放置在广播电视频道上极限频率附近利用VSB DTV信号接近其载波频率的双边带特性，允许更好抑制同频道NTSC声音信号假象。 However, even if the holding grid 12 parallel code using a filter circuit 12 having a comb symbol differential delay to suppress NTSC co-channel interference artifacts, but the carrier is placed on the DTV broadcast television channels using the VSB DTV signal is close to its limit near the carrier frequency double-sideband frequency characteristics, allowing for better suppression of co-channel NTSC sound signal artifacts.
