  2. 2. Radio Frequency
  3. 3. Data Forms Data (Information) can be analog or digital. The term analog data refers to information that is continuous; digital data refers to information that has discrete states. Analog data take on continuous values. Digital data take on discrete values. In communication systems, we commonly use periodic analog signals and non-periodic digital signals
  4. 4. Signal Parameters x (t) = A(t) cos[w.t + (Ø)]
  5. 5. Signal Parameters Amplitude (A): is the peak of the signal
  6. 6. Signal Parameters Frequency (F): is the rate of change with respect to time. Change in a short span of time, means high frequency. Change over a long span of time means low frequency.
  7. 7. Signal Parameters Phase (P): describes the position of the waveform relative to time 0.
  8. 8. Modulation To be transmitted, Information (Data) must be transformed to electromagnetic signals, with higher frequency and power.
  9. 9. Modulation, Why?
  10. 10. Modulation, Why? Frequency Assignment Reduction of noise/interference Multiplexing Bandwidth limitations of equipment Frequency characteristics of antennas Atmospheric/cable properties
  11. 11. Modulation Analogue modulation:A higher frequency signal is generated by varying some characteristic of a highfrequency signal (carrier) on a continuous basis.Amplitude Modulation (AM), Frequency Modulation (FM), Phase Modulation(PM) Digital modulation:Signals are converted to binary data, encoded, and translated to higher frequency.Frequency Shift Keying (FSK), Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK) [ (GMSK)],Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK), Quadrature Amplitude Modulation(QAM)

  16. 16. Comparisons of Digital and AnalogCommunication Systems Digital Communication System Analog Communication System Advantage : Disadvantages :  inexpensive digital circuits  privacy preserved (data encryption)  expensive analog components : L&C  can merge different data (voice, video and data)  no privacy and transmit over a common digital  can not merge data from diff. sources transmission system  no error correction capability  error correction by coding Disadvantages : Advantages :  larger bandwidth  smaller bandwidth  synchronization problem is relatively difficult  synchronization problem is relatively easier

  19. 19. Manchester Encoding It is a form of binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) that has gained wide acceptance as the modulation scheme for low- cost radio-frequency (RF) transmission of digital data. Manchester is a simple method for encoding digital serial data of arbitrary bit patterns without having any long strings of continuous zeros or ones, and having the encoding clock rate embedded within the transmitted data. These two characteristics enable low-cost data-recovery circuits to be constructed that can decode transmitted data with variable signal strengths from transmitters with imprecise, low-cost, data-rate clocks.
