The next-generation U.S. digital terrestrial television (DTT) standard ATSC 3.0 is the most flexible DTT standard ever developed, outperforming the state-of-the-art digital video broadcasting-terrestrial 2nd generation (DVB-T2) standard. This higher flexibility allows broadcasters to select the configuration that better suits the coverage and capacity requirements per service. Regarding the selection of pilot patterns, whereas DVB-T2 provides eight different patterns with a unique pilot amplitude, ATSC 3.0 expands up to 16, with five different amplitudes per pattern. This paper focuses on the pilot pattern and amplitude performance and optimization for time and power multiplexing modes, time division multiplexing and layered division multiplexing (LDM), respectively, of ATSC 3.0. The selection of the optimum pilot configuration is not straightforward. On the one hand, the pilots must be sufficiently dense to follow channel fluctuations. On the other hand, as long as pilot density is increased, more data overhead is introduced. Moreover, this selection is particularly essential in LDM mode, because the LDM implementation in ATSC 3.0 requires that both layers share all the waveform parameters, including pilot pattern configuration. In addition, there is an error proportional to the channel estimate of the top layer that affects to the lower layer performance.
