    In late 1978, the Broadcast Television System Committee of the Electronic Industries Association, on behalf of the television industry, formed a subcommittee for the purpose of formulating standards for the broadcasting and reception of multichannel television sound which was to include stereophonic as well as second program (second language, for example) enhancements of the main audio program. On December 22, 1983, the industry chose the Zenith transmission system coupled with the dbx noise reduction system and submitted the combined system, the BTSC system, to the Federal Communications Commission on January 30, 1984. On April 23, 1984, the FCC released a Report and Order in Docket No. 21323 wherein the choice of technical standards was left to the marketplace, but protection was afforded to the pilot frequency of the BTSC system. In addition, if a pilot is transmitted at 15.734 kHz, the BTSC system must be employed as described in the FCC office of Science and Technology Bulletin No. 60. View full abstract»

  • A New Integrated High-Performance AM Receiver for Car Radio

    Page(s): 8 - 16
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1995 KB)  

    A new type of monolithic AM receiver has been designed and integrated in a conventional 40OMHz-fT bipolar process. Adjustments and band switches are completely eliminated, and production costs can be reduced considerably thanks to the unconventional approach, which uses an upconversion system.

  • A Cost-Effective Digital Decoder for PAL Signals

    Page(s): 17 - 23
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1467 KB)  

    Three conditions are proposed to examine the efficiency of decoding PAL signals based on a certain sampling structure. Analysis shows that the fs =4fsc is the best structure for digital PAL decoding, and there still exists potential of improvement on 4fsc decoder, A new comb filter is then developed, which can reduce both delay units and their throughput rates by half, and therefore make the decoder cost-effective.

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1678 KB)  

    This paper describes sound PCM decoder LSIs used for 12GHz TV direct broadcasting via satellite (DBS). These LSIs include newly developed data processing circuits, such as sync detector, RAM controller, de-interleaver, error corrector etc. Functions and features of these circuits are explained in detail.

  • EMC Regulations and Methods of Measurement for Sound and Television Broadcast Receivers in the Federal Republic of Germany

    Up to 1981 only the capability of active interfering, e.g. the interfering radiation power of the receivers, by which other radio services may be affected, was limited by the regulations substantially. But the time before the number of registered cases, where receivers were affected by other sevices, mainly by the CB-service, increased year after year (from about 5 600 in 1976 up to more than 11 000 in 1979). Based on this fact in 1981 the technical regulations for broadcast receivers have been supplemented by EMC regulations so that the receivers additionally must follow minimum values of immunity against interference under normal conditions.

  • Power Transformers for Switched Mode Power Supplies

    Page(s): 47 - 53
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (3422 KB)  

    The magnetic circuit of power transformers for switched mode power supplies is analyzed, and formulas are derived. A counter-biasing permanent magnet may be included in the magnetic circuit to increase the range of utilization of the magnetic saturated flux density Bs of the ferrite cores. The working principle of such counter-biasing magnets are discussed. View full abstract»

  • EMI Caused by Line Deflection Circuits

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (6097 KB)  

    Rapid rate of change of current in the fall time of transistors and the forward and reverse recovery time of diodes often gives rise to radiated electromagnetic interference repeated at horizontal frequency. When surface acoustic wave filters are used, scan bars are sometimes produced on the screen as a result of triple transit echoes of the received noises. Compromises should often be made between receiving sensitivity power loss, and electromagnetic compatibility. View full abstract»

  • A New Intelligent Remote Control Unit for Consumer Electronic Devices

    Means like menu-techniques or so called help-files for simplifying the handling of various appliances have gained a firm footing in most fields of professional or semi-professional technology. Evidently this trend will extend even to the smallest microprocessor equipped professional device. Only in the field of consumer electronics, where even a timer controlled video cassette recorder has proven to be a technically very complicated machine, no realy drastic progress is visible. Instead extremely difficult to handle appliances which require large instruction manuals are still developed and marketed. Here a large number of switches and buttons dominate, though an intelligent application of the principles of "user-guidance" already known today would allow simple and self-explanatory control units.
