Hereinafter, a method and apparatus for transmitting digital television broadcast data and a method and apparatus for receiving digital television broadcast data according to the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

1 is a diagram illustrating a configuration of an existing ATSC system channel. ATSC is a committee set up to consider the method of advanced television (ATV), the next-generation terrestrial television system in the United States. ATSC systems are the technical standard for the next generation of digital terrestrial television in the United States.

Referring to FIG. 1, channel 1 (CH 1, 10) and channel 2 (CH 2, 12) are interleaved in frames 14. In other words, data of a service (channel) is present in an RF frame. Therefore, there is no method for selecting a specific service and adjusting the power of the RF device.

2 is a diagram illustrating a configuration of an improved ATSC system channel according to the present invention. Referring to FIG. 2, in the system according to the present invention, channel 1 (CH 1) and channel 2 (CH 2) are divided and transmitted for each frame. In the example of FIG. 2, channels 1 20 and 24 are transmitted using frames 30 and 34, and channel 2 22 is transmitted using frame 32. Therefore, when a desired service on the receiving device side corresponds to channel 1, power consumption may be reduced by not receiving frame 32 which is a frame corresponding to channel 2.

3 is a diagram illustrating a configuration of a service frame group according to the present invention. In the present invention, by using such a service frame group, it is possible to reduce the power consumption of the receiving device.

3 illustrates a case in which three services 40 from service 1 to service 3 are included in a channel.

In the digital television broadcast data transmission method according to the present invention, a service frame group 50 including all services to be transmitted is generated. Each service corresponds to at least one RF frame 54. The RF frame corresponding to each service is called a service frame.

In the example of FIG. 3, service frames 1 to 4 correspond to service 1, service frames 5 to 8 correspond to service 2, and service frames 9 to 12 correspond to service 3.

3 illustrates a case where the service side receives the service 1.

Referring to the operation period 60 of the receiving device, the receiving device only needs to receive the service frame 1 to the service frame 4 corresponding to the service 1. Therefore, the reception device is turned off while the service frames 5 to 12 are transmitted. Preferably only the RF device of the receiving device is turned off.

After the service frame 12 is transmitted, the next service frame group is transmitted. When the service frame 1 included in the new service frame group is transmitted, power is supplied to the RF device of the receiving apparatus to receive the service frames. Thus, the time to turn off the RF device is determined in advance, so that the RF device is powered off only during the determined off time.

In order to predetermine time to turn off the RF device, service configuration information is generated and transmitted from the transmitting device to the receiving device. The service configuration information includes information indicating which service in each channel corresponds to each service frame. The receiver may use the service configuration information to know that service 1 corresponds to service frame 1 to service frame 4 of the entire service frames. Since the entire service frame is from 1 to 12, the service frame 5 to the service frame 12 is time to turn off the RF device. Therefore, the time to turn off the RF device is as shown in Equation 1 below. The time to turn off can be as little as alpha in some cases. That is, when the RF device needs a preparation time to receive the RF stream, or when there is an error because the clock of the terminal is not accurate, it is necessary to operate earlier than the scheduled off time. This preparation time is expressed in alpha.

Off time of the RF device = (the total number of service frames in the service frame group-the number of service frames corresponding to the desired service) * the length of a single frame-alpha

The RF receiver 520 receives a service frame having a frame number obtained by the service configuration information analyzer 510 from among service frames included in the service frame group.

The RF power controller 530 turns off the RF receiver 520 while a service frame having no frame number obtained by the service configuration information analyzer 510 is transmitted. As a result, the power consumption of the RF receiver may be reduced without receiving a service frame corresponding to an unwanted service.

In the embodiment of FIG. 5, the RF power control unit 530 includes an off time calculator 540 and an off time timer 550.

The off time calculator 540 obtains the number of service frames that do not correspond to a desired service among the service frames included in the service frame group, and multiplies the number of the service frames by the length of a single frame to power the RF receiver. Find the time to turn off. This is equal to the time to turn off the RF device according to Equation (1).

The off time timer unit 550 turns off the RF receiver 520 for the time to be turned off after receiving the last service frame among the service frames corresponding to the desired service. According to this, the power of the RF receiver 520 is turned off after all the service frames corresponding to the desired service are received. When the time according to Equation 1 elapses, the RF receiver 520 is turned on again. (on) to receive service frames corresponding to the desired service again.

The service component 100 is a component that generates individual elementary streams (ES) constituting each service. For example, the A / V service corresponds to an audio component / video component.

The packetizer 110 configures each elementary stream ES as a packet. For example, an elementary stream (ES) is reconstructed into a transport stream (TS) packet.

Eater 120 multiplexes each packet. In the case of a transport stream (TS), a process of making each packet into a TS stream is performed.

The frame generator 130 configures the multiplexed packets into frames. In the case of the ATSC standard, interleaving is performed to generate a final frame.

The emitter 140 is a device for transmitting the generated frame using the RF.

The frame slicing information inserter 150 inserts information for frame slicing into the packet. The information for frame slicing is information including, for example, frame numbering information and a table for frame slicing.

 The service processor 240 is a kind of ES decoder. Each ES is collected to provide a valid service to the user.

 The system information processor 250 receives system information and transmits the system information to the control device. Examples of system information include frame slicing information.

The control device 260 receives the frame slicing information to skip the frame or controls not to operate the RF device for a predetermined time.

8 is a flowchart illustrating a digital television broadcast data receiving method according to another embodiment of the present invention.

FIG. 8 illustrates a process of the RF stage, and illustrates a process in which the data receiving apparatus receives the RF frame to make valid packet data.

First, by receiving the data (S100), it is determined whether the service configuration information is included (S110). If there is no existing service configuration information and the received data is not the service configuration information, data should continue to be received until service configuration information is received.

If the service configuration information is included in the received data, it is determined whether the information is updated than the service configuration information that is already present (S120). If the service configuration information is updated, it is necessary to analyze the service configuration information and reflect the information necessary to be reflected (S130).

The frame number assigned to the service frame is checked (S140) to determine whether the service frame corresponds to the desired service (S150).

If the desired service belongs to the frame, the service data is output (S160), it is determined whether there is a service termination command (S170), and the above process is repeated until there is a service termination command.

If the frame does not belong to the desired service, the frame is skipped (S180) and the RF device should not be operated for a predetermined time.

To this end, the RF device is powered off and a timer is set (S190). The set time of the timer is set to an off time according to Equation (1).

The timer checks whether the set time has been reached (S200), and continues to wait if the set time has not been reached (S210).

When the set time is reached, the RF device is turned on and the process is repeated again.

9 is a diagram illustrating a protocol stack of an A-VSB (Advanced-Vestigial Side Band) system. The A-VSB system supports the Supplementary Reference System (SRS) and Turbo applications. The SRS 300 adds and transmits a training sequence called an equalizer 302 which is data that can improve the reception performance of the terminal.

The turbo application 310 provides a channel through which additional data can be transmitted.

Data of the turbo application 310 is stored in the private data area of the adaptation field (AF, 325) of the ATSC Normal TS (320). Information about the SRS and turbo application is transmitted 340 via mode information 332 in Data Field Sync 330. Two DFSs exist in an ATSC transmission frame. The mode information 332 means information transmitted through the DFS 330.

The portion in which the turbo application data is transmitted is divided into a signaling information channel (SIC) 312 and a data channel 314. Each data channel 314 is divided into respective subchannels. Information about the subchannels is provided via the SIC 312 (342).

The frame number 602 indicates the number of the current service frame.

The frame length 604 represents the total number of service frames included in the service frame group.

Since the A-VSB is a single carrier system, an RF frame is provided as a basic component unit that provides a service to support burst transmission. The RF frame consists of consecutive rows. Therefore, an intra-frame service allocation scheme cannot be used, and RF frames should be divided into distinguishable groups. Frame grouping is a method of dividing the columns of such consecutive RF frames into distinguishable groups.

A method of grouping frames includes a method of combining a start frame flag and an end frame flag (method 1), a method including a start frame flag and length information ( Method 2), a method of designating a frame number (frame 3), and the like.

In the first and second methods, when an intermediate frame is received, it is difficult to know where the received frame is located in the entire frame group. It is also difficult to detect when the size of a frame group changes. According to the third method, since there are no such disadvantages, it is preferable to employ the third method. The start of a frame group is numbered from frame one. After the largest frame number, the frame is again numbered 1st. This is called wrap up.

The size of the frame group and the interval length of each service frame can be changed by a signaling procedure in the system. If there is a change in the size of the frame group, it is possible to adjust when the service is repeated. For example, if the size of the frame group was 10 when the service was started, 10 frames are taken from the start of the first service frame of a service to the reception of the first service frame of the corresponding service of the next service frame group. When the information is updated and the size of the frame group is 20, 20 frames are required from the time when the first service frame of the corresponding service is started to the time when the first service frame of the corresponding service of the next service frame group is received.

Similarly, if the length of the service frame interval is changed, it can be changed by the signaling procedure. Changing the service frame interval length may cause the length of the service frame group. The length of the service frame group may not be changed by reducing the length of another service frame interval.

As a result, the section for turning off the power of the RF device can be adjusted.
