1. 1. TELE3113 Analogue and Digital Communications Amplitude Modulation Wei Zhang w.zhang@unsw.edu.au School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications The University of New South Wales
2. 2. Modulation Modulation is deﬁned as the process by which some characteristics of a carrier wave is varied in accordance with an information-bearing signal. amplitude modulation (AM) (varying amplitude) angle modulation (varying phase or frequency) AM family: amplitude modulation double sideband-suppressed carrier (DSB-SC) single sideband (SSB) vestigial sideband (VSB) TELE3113 - Amplitude Modulation. August 4, 2009. – p.1/1
3. 3. Amplitude Modulation (1) Consider a sinusoidal carrier wave c(t) deﬁned by c(t) = Ac cos(2πfct), where Ac is the carrier amplitude and fc is the carrier frequency. Amplitude modulation (AM) is a process in which the amplitude of the carrier wave c(t) is varied linearly with the message signal m(t). An AM wave is: s(t) = Ac[1 + kam(t)] cos(2πfct). where ka is a constant called the amplitude sensitivity. TELE3113 - Amplitude Modulation. August 4, 2009. – p.2/1
4. 4. Amplitude Modulation (2) In AM, information resides solely in the envelop, i.e., Ac|1 + kam(t)|, which has the same shape as the message signal m(t). In order to properly detect the information, the shape of the envelop of the modulated signal should be unchanged in the modulation. Speciﬁcally, 1. The amplitude of kam(t) < 1 for all t; 2. The carrier frequency fc >> W, where W is the message bandwidth. TELE3113 - Amplitude Modulation. August 4, 2009. – p.3/1

7. 7. FT of AM (1) Consider the AM signal, s(t) = Ac[1 + kam(t)] cos(2πfct). The Fourier transform of s(t) is given by S(f) = Ac 2 [δ(f − fc) + δ(f + fc)] + kaAc 2 [M(f − fc) + M(f + fc)]. We used the relations: exp(j2πfct) ⇔ δ(f − fc) m(t) exp(j2πfct) ⇔ M(f − fc) (Shifting Property) TELE3113 - Amplitude Modulation. August 4, 2009. – p.6/1

9. 9. Example: Single-Tone AM (1) Consider a message signal with a single tone, m(t) = Am cos(2πfmt). The corresponding AM wave is therefore given by s(t) = Ac[1 + µ cos(2πfmt)] cos(2πfct), where µ is called the modulation factor or percentage modulation, as µ = kaAm. TELE3113 - Amplitude Modulation. August 4, 2009. – p.8/1
10. 10. Example: Single-Tone AM (2) Let Amax and Amin denote the maximum and minimum values of the envelope of the modulated wave, respectively. Then, Amax = Ac(1 + µ), Amin = Ac(1 − µ). Rearranging the equation, we may express the modulation factor as µ = Amax − Amin Amax + Amin . TELE3113 - Amplitude Modulation. August 4, 2009. – p.9/1

12. 12. Example: Single-Tone AM (4) For the single-tone signal, we may express it as s(t) = Ac cos(2πfct)+ µAc 2 cos[2π(fc+fm)t]+ µAc 2 cos[2π(fc−fm)t]. The Fourier transform of s(t) is therefore S(f) = Ac 2 [δ(f − fc) + δ(f + fc)] + µAc 4 [δ(f − fc − fm) + δ(f + fc + fm)] + µAc 4 [δ(f − fc + fm) + δ(f + fc − fm)]. TELE3113 - Amplitude Modulation.

15. 15. Pros and Cons of AM Pros: Easily generated and inexpensive to build. Cons: Waste of transmitted power. The carrier power is useless. Waste of channel bandwidth. Due to the symmetry, only upper or lower sideband is needed. Modiﬁcations of AM: Double sideband-suppressed carrier (DSB-SC) modulation Single sideband (SSB) modulation Vestigial sideband (VSB) modulation TELE3113 - Amplitude Modulation.
