DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION The present invention is a new and improved
broadcast system. In particular, four separate stereophonic relationships C; frequency-modulated
broadcast systems with certain audio frequency (audio frequency) input / outputs o Broadcast or
recorded audio and other elements C 2 realistic listening It is well recognized that entertainment
眸 can often be substantially increased by providing different loudspeakers C; multiple separate
channels or audio feeds, so that the two-channel stereophonic system becomes obsolete Many
record boards and magnetic tape recording media are broadcasted according to the established
standard. A widely adopted and widely standardized type of two-channel stereophonic sound
system is disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 3,122,610 issued Feb. 25, 1964. The n utilizes a first
frequency band in which the main carrier is modulated with the sum of the left (Z) and right (R)
channels. This dominant transmission is frequency modulated at the sidebands of the 58 KHz
suppressed subcarrier which is amplitude modulated with the difference between the left (L) and
right (R) channels. The pilot signal is In order to give a reference for the local reproduction of the
subcarrier and to give an indication of the presence of the stereophonic sound signal, in the
receiver 受 信 =. 191 in the air gap between the two frequency bands! It is given as Jz. This
highly successful system, is completely compatible with the monophonic mono-frequency
modulation broadcast system of the prior art (C 雫 -tihla). It is now recognized that there are
many advantages to a two-channel system C two-channel three-dimensional sound system that is
realistic and increases listening entertainment by comparison. For example, if the sound 1 'of a
large concert hall is played &: specials; 0 its surrounding C: in the case where the sound reaches
the listener from many directions. Most of this sound is reflected, so it is time-delayed to form an
important part of the listening experience-rt, v Introduce 04 channel stereophonic music is
recorded on magnetic tape, good It is reproduced through the speaker system having the
characteristic T. In addition, four-channel stereophonic music utilizing two separate stations,
which are assigned different central carrier frequencies, limits 1M broadcasts. It is important that
the four-channel stereophonic system be completely compatible (Ctnpat # b1g) with many of the
monophonic and two-channel stereophonic devices present. If complete monophonic and twochannel stereophonic sound information is provided to this device, the present C's established
sum and difference signals and the present code; the established 191JIz pilot signal is applied to
the four-channel system. It must be integrated.
Thus, the information necessary to destroy the jIC2 existing stereophonic sound channel into 4
channels C is established-rL must be superimposed on the 2-channel stereophonic sound
jamming signal. It is not possible to generate an out-of-band radiation (otbt-of-one-Tadiatim) that
is difficult to receive (Do not know how this goal is achieved. EndPage: 2 pseudo (pzgutLo)
Alternatively, many three-dimensional sound receivers now exist, creating what is called a hybrid
four-channel output. This is achieved by two ordinary stereo human can matrixes at the receiver,
where ≦; one hour late to produce four inputs t each of which is different from the other six
inputs And loudness (achieved with the addition of joutlxya, there are no four separate inputs.
There are four artificially created four inputs, and the relationship between the two pairs of
loudspeakers is in accordance with the preselected scheme (forytblα) when the receiver is built.
Some known systems to be determined enjoy using a matrix of four audio inputs at the
transmitter), but only two channels are transmitted al (= therefore, they are not Similarly, in the
Vibrid system G2 as well, the 4 channel of information is not broadcasted by the transmitter C

power (channels) from a single frequency modulation station (in four separate stereophonic
sounds) (if it is possible to provide out-of-band emissions that may interfere with other stations,
of course) It is necessary. This is one frequency modulation broadcast 関: TT current standard
method! Substantial division: Whenever it passes, without recognizing a broadcast signal
containing its harmonics, four stereophonic sound inputs can be achieved by a single main
carrier i: multiplexed 1 L, etc. It is important to provide a system in which the number of
transmissions is the minimum bandwidth inclusion. The receiver design is an essential
compromise between adjacent channel selectivity and receiver channel bandwidth, since the

disconnect the control signal generating means 268. The four matrix outputs, the 19 ffz pilot
signal and the control signal are in one sense added to the broadcast signal, so their phase
relationship is critical to one another. If the proper phase relationship can not be maintained,
crosstalk between channels will occur. The second and sixth matrix output signal generators

Although the receiver 22 described here performs the functions of these: L is well suited, but as
with the transmitter 20, the receiver 22 has many within the scope of the inventive concept.
Change the page in a way. These functions may be appropriately ≦: 0. However, the receiver 22
is a part of a broadcasting system, and is specially designed to utilize a composite signal
generated by the cooperative transmitter 20; It must be done. Sixth. Seventh. 8 and 9; a portion
of the preferred receiver 22 shown is part of an integrated circuit design and detects four matrix
outputs by time division of the composite signal. These features of the receiver 22 are not
absolutely essential, and the four matrix outputs can be detected by more conventional tuning
circuits. However, such an arrangement does not provide many of the advantages of inductorless
integrated circuits useful for time division techniques. The signal from 1M detector 298 is
applied to input terminal 300 and passes through an amplifier (shown in FIG. 6: shown)
containing transistors 302, 304, 308 and 308 to develop two separate signal channels. . This
configuration provides a signal to the integrated circuit for immediate use. A DC output is taken
from the transistor 306 by the line 310, and an AC out DC power is taken from the transistor
30g by the line 3 ''. Unwanted alternating current components are removed from the signal by
capacitor 314 before reaching the pace of transistor 306. The bias voltages generated in section
320 (shown in FIG. 6), which is a common arrangement, are utilized to provide the necessary
voltage levels to the various parts of the integrated path described below. Lines 310, 312 are
signals to the quadrature detector (q 塾 adrat word dmtmetsr) 326 (shown in FIG. 7) where the
signal is applied to the pace of the two transistors 328, 330 forming a differential amplifier. give.
This amplifier is connected to and driven by two pairs of transistors 332 and δ 334, 336 and
1338 which form a two pole, double throw switch. The state of this switch is determined by the
divider (fraqse * cydivider) i; Detector 326. Current control oscillator 348. The DC amplifier 35G
and the frequency divider 346 form a phase lock loop (phaselockad1 eap). The output of detector
326 is applied to the bases of transistors 352 and 354 which form a DC differential amplifier
350. The output of this amplifier 350 is thus converted from a voltage signal to a current signal
by the transistors 360, 362 'and then applied at the emitter of the transistor 363 to the EndPage:
9 current control oscillator 348.
Oscillator 348 is a modified emitter-coupled monostable multivibrator such that the charging
current is a function of the signal current applied through transistor 363 through capacitor 364
outside the integrated circuit. This current flows through diode 368 and parallel load resistor
376, transistor 378, capacitor 364 and transistor 372. This (a current of two forks is a diode 374
and a parallel load resistor 37G). It flows through capacitor 364 and transistor 380. Transistors
372 and 380 form a differential current switch that is responsive to the differential voltage
across transistors 371 and 378. Transistors 371 and 378 have cross-coupled collectors and
bases to provide the necessary feedback for monostable operation. The transistor voltage bias of
current controlled oscillator 348 is provided by line 386 from bias voltage generation portion
320. Free running frequency of oscillator 348 (/ rag? %% 11 & jfrmq% g% el) (approximate (= 16

the bases of the transistors 372 and 38G is a 75 KHz square wave applied to a pair of terminals
387 and 388. This is an input to the 1 divider 346. The splitter 346 comprises two modified
current mode logic, master slave flip flops (FF). A master-slave FF consisting of a pair of
transistors 392 and 394 and a pair of transistors 408 and 410 is elacked with a 75 KHz
oscillator 348 and 990 'to produce two phase 39f # z signals Thus, 's1. 1st. Create a carrier

subcarrier 38 KHz, which is behind the first by 90 degrees, is extracted from the pair of output
lines The transistor pair 412, 414 constitutes a gate switch means for gating the
master F 1392, 394, and the transistor pair 404, 406 constitutes a gate switch means for gating
the slave cages 408, 410. The output from the master FF is shifted to a DC level by transistor
resistor networks 396, 398, 400 and 397, 399, 401 driving output lines 458, 456.
The DC level of the slave FF's output is left by the transistor network 407 ° 411, 409 and 412,
413, 415 which drives the output lines 448, 450. The transistor pair 389, 390 constitutes clock
switch means for driving the master slave IF from the oscillator 348. The second master slave jFF
is clocked from the 23174 KHz signal from the first master slave FF to produce two H) fJfz
signals in quadrature. The 119f # z signal is extracted from the pair of output lines 438 and 440.
The 's219f # z signal, which leads J1 by 90 degrees, is taken from a pair of output lines 434,
436. The operation of the second master slave FF including the gate switch means, the clock
switch means and the DC level shift means is identical to the first master slave FF. The 19 KHz
output is provided by output lines 434 and 436 (: by: transistors 334 and 332, respectively, of
detector 326 to complete the phase lock loop. One pair of output lines 438 and 440 supplies the
outputs of the FFs 430 and 432 to the bases of the transistors 542 and 544, 540 and 546 of the
19f # z / (slot detector 528 in FIG. FIG. 8 also shows means 442 for detecting the four matrix
outputs. The oscillator 348 (1) 75 KHz output is taken out from the output terminals 387 and
388 and supplied to a pair of input terminals 444 and 446 in the matrix output detection means
442. The 39 KHz first subcarrier generated by the FFs 408 and 410 is taken from the pair of
output terminals 448 and 450 of the splitter 346 and applied to the pair of input terminals 452
and 454 in the matrix output detector 442 (Reinserted). Similarly, the 39 KHz% 2 subcarrier
generated by J '7392, 394 delayed by 90 degrees from the output of FF 408, 410 is taken from
the pair of EndPage: 10 output terminals 456, 458 of the splitter 346, A pair of input terminals
460 ° 462 (two applied (reinserted) in the matrix output detection means 442). Thus, the
current control oscillator 348 forms a means for regenerating and reinserting the third
subcarrier which is 16 KHzH :. Minuteers 346 (DIFs 392, 394 and 408, 410) *, 1st in the 3 gffz.
A means is provided to regenerate and reinsert the second subcarrier.
Input terminals 452 and 454 g) A 36 KHz signal is applied to the gate consisting of transistors
464 and 466, and a 4-pole, double throw, double throw switch 468 is used to control time
division sampling of the composite signal. Operate. The combined signal is taken from the lines
322, 324 and applied to the pace of the two transistors 470, 472 by the two lines 469, 4701 =,
thereby forming a differential amplifier. In a similar manner, the late 3 ff-Hz signals from input
terminals 460 and 462 are applied to gate 474 which operates a two pole, double throw switch
476 to control the sampling of the signal applied to differential amplifier 478. . Gate 480
operates a two pole, double throw switch 482 which controls sampling from terminals 444, 446.
In this way, the signal is sampled for an appropriate time (::, given four matrix outputs as the
outputs of the swings 468, 476 and 482. The switch outputs include four transistors 488, which
divide each output of switch 468 into two outputs, four transistors 490, which divide each of the
two outputs of transistor 476 into two outputs, and a switch 482, respectively. A de-matrix
means 486 consisting of four transistors 492 is applied which divides the output into two
outputs. The outputs of the transistors 488, 490 and 492 have four output terminals 494 and
496. At 498 and 500, the matrix outputs giving the original four audio frequencies human power
Ly, Lm, Ry, Rx are connected together to add and subtract. Reception @ 22 further comprises
means 528 (FIG. 8 (shown)) for detecting the presence of the 19 KHz pilot signal 43, which is
applied to the differential amplifiers 548, 550 (': thus: Four transistors 540, 542 arranged to
form a two pole, double throw switch to sample the signal. 544 and 546 are included. The switch
is operated at 19 KHz (9 ratio) by the 19 ffz signal from the splitter 346 so that the 19 KHz pilot
signal in the composite signal is detected and the DC voltage proportional to the amplitude of the
19 f # z pilot is two resistors 552 , 554 and the variable resistor 556. Capacitor 558 filters the
AC signal between these resistors. The resistors 552, 554 and 556, of course, are external
components with respect to the integrated circuit of the receiver ai 122.
The voltage drop across the arrangement of resistors 552, 564, 556 and capacitor 558 is
proportional to the amplitude of the 19 KHz pilot signal 43. This voltage drop is applied to
differential DC amplifier 562 and to differential amplifier 564 which includes one pair of
transistors 566 and 568. The transistor 568 has a fixed voltage level that is applied to a resistive
voltage divider (γazsziar-diwid * r) 570e572 <: Jo's "C" 17). Thus, if amplified by detector 528
and DC amplifier 562 E, if the level of pilot 43 in the combined signal is higher than the dark
value determined by resistive divider 570, 572, then transistor 568 through resistor 561. The
transistor 566 is tuned and the transistor 568 is detuned by the regeneration action of the
transistor 564 connected to the pace of the transistor 566 of the When transistor 568 is
detuned, the voltage level at its collector rises, increasing the voltage level applied as feedback to
the pace of transistor 566 kept in tune. Conduction of the transistor 566 causes current to flow
to the transistor 576, increasing the voltage between the resistor 578 and forward biasing the
transistor 580 and the other transistor 582. Transistor j 582 operates a ramp 584 giving an
indication, 15 "indicating that the Igffz pilot is being received," indicating that it is strong enough
to reproduce two stereo channels. EndPage: The current that forward biases the 11 transistor
576 also forward biases the transistor 586. The collector current from this transistor is then fed
to the transistor 388, which will turn off if the pilot signal level is not high enough for 2f Yannel
reception, so that the appropriate part of the receiver @ 22 (FF 464, 466) )). The receiver 22
optionally includes switching means 6 o O (丞 y in FIG. 9), which is responsive to the presence of
the control signal 44 at 76 KHz in the composite signal. The function of the switching means 60G
is to provide an indication by means of a funpro 02 indicating the presence of four audio
frequency inputs. The switching means 600 is also arranged to disconnect part of the receiver 22
at the matrix output detector 442 when the display signal 44 is not present.
This part of the receiver 22 is a gate 48G (Knee controlled amplifier 484) which detects an
amplifier 478 controlled by a gate 474 which detects the 's4 matrix output and the s3 matrix. A
gate 48 is provided by a terminated line 604 connected to the rectifier. Switching means 600 is
similar to 19r # z pilot detector 52g (shown in FIG. 88), and transistor 606 and lamp 602 are
operated in the same manner as transistor 586 and lamp 584. The 76 KHX control signal
indicates that four audio inputs can be extracted from the combined signal, so the lamp 602 is
fired and the transistor 606 is tuned only if it has sufficient amplitude. A switch 636 is provided
to connect the line 604 to ground so that the amplifiers 478, 484 can be manually disconnected.
Of course, the switching means 6oo is useful only if the weakened 79 KHz third subcarrier is not
suppressed but is only weak and transmitted to provide a control signal. The broadcast V-stem
described above provides transmission of a broadcast signal that includes audio frequency inputs
in four separate stereophonic relationships. This signal conforms to the standard (= standard
established method for 2-channel stereo FM broadcasting) and is completely compatible with the
existing monophonic and 2-channel stereo equipment. Although modulation at the transmitter
has been described in terms of suppressed carrier amplitude modulation, the generated signal is
essentially similar to the signal generated by AC channel time sampling considered equivalent
technology It is well known. Similarly ::, the two methods are internally modifiable at the receiver.
The embodiments are as follows.
