Pulse amplitude modulation & demodulation

  1. 1. LAB - 3 PULSE AMPLITUDE MODULATION & DEMODULATION 3.1 OBJECTIVE In this lab, you will learn how to perform the pulse amplitude modulation and demodulation and to calculate the modulation index for various modulating voltages. 3.2 HARDWARE REQUIRED . Transistor, AFO, IC NE566, Resistors, Capacitor, CRO, RPS. 3.3 PREPARATION (PRE-LAB) Do the complete revision of Pulse Amplitude Modulation and Demodulation theory. 3.4 THEORY Pulse amplitude modulation is a scheme, which alters the amplitude of regularly spaced rectangular pulses in accordance with the instantaneous values of a continuous message signal. Then amplitude of the modulated pulses represents the amplitude of the intelligence. A train of very short pulses of constant amplitude and fast repetition rate is chosen the amplitude of these pulse is made to vary in accordance with that of a slower modulating signal the result is that of multiplying the train by the modulating signal the enve lope of the pulse height corresponds to the modulating wave .the Pam wave contain upper and lower side band frequencies .besides the modulating and pulse signals. The demodulated PAM waves, the signal is passed through a low pass filter ha ving a cut – off frequencies equal to the highest frequency in the modulating signal. At the output of the filter is available the modulating signal along with the DC component PAM has the same signal to noise ratio as AM and so it is not employed in practical circuits

Vary the potentiometer so that modulating signal is obtained. 4. Measure the amplitude of the signal and verify with that of the input. 3.7 LAB RESULT Thus the pulse amplitude modulation was performed and its corresponding demodulation was also performed. 3.8 POST LAB QUESTIONS 1.
