### How harmonics happens when you mix two signals?

Doing a search in quora about Why does Amplitude Modulation have sideband frequencies? i found an answer and within it, a user answered with the following statement: "When you try mixing two ...

### Why the bandwidth in frequency spectrum of AM wave is 2fm and not 2fc?

We know, the instantaneous voltage of AM wave is: ...

### modulation depth

When a value for the power dissipated by an AM signal is given, and the depth of modulation is also given. Then you are told to find the modulation depth required to increase the power to a higher ...

### Question about Hilbert transform of a cosine signal

In the paper entitled "On instantaneous frequency", it is claimed that the Hilbert transform of a signal in the form of $A(t)cos(\phi(t))$ would result in $A(t)sin(\phi(t))$, where $A(t)$ is ...

### RF Downconversion using Heterodyne Principle

after a RF down-conversion using heterodyning principle, will there be an information loss? If we translate to a fixed IF frequency, is there is an intuitive way of explain that the information can be ...

### Minimum value of G (Amplitude) that guarantees an error probability of at least $10^{-2}$ in a 32-PAM transmission system

pretty much new here. This question comes from an Online course quiz which i have already completed but cant seem to get a good sleep over, just because i cant figure it out. Below is the question ...

### ZOH non ideal sampling loss formula

Hello i am trying to calculate the amplitude loss of non ideal sampling. My signals amplitude is 10 at 70 frequency. When we sample it at Fs=400 we have al 0.511 loss as shown in plot bellow. How can ...

### CDMA scheme that preserves constant envelope (NRZ/ASK shape)

(This is a followup question to Is this a "valid" CDMA modulation?) Is it possible to find a CDMA scheme in which the receiver can only have a simple slicer? In other words, for the ...

### Please, help me interpret my Simulink simulation of AM. Why does carrier not appear in the spectogram?

Carrier is 2 * pi * 25, modulating signal is 2 * pi, all the amplitudes are 1s and zero phase. I realized that I could add a sine wave right at the end. I get a carrier in frequency domain, but my ...

### What kind of Modulation causes “drops” in FFT Power Spectrum

I am analyzing a signal with FFT and I found an effect, that I do not understand. I am expecting to have an amplitude modulated signal. As far as I know, if you compute the power of the FFT of an ...

### Absolute value based AM envelope detection viewed in the frequency domain

In my understanding when a passband AM signal is demodulated with an envelope detector taking the absolute value restores the original baseband version of the signal and the low-pass filter removes ...

### Why is the carrier suppressed by AM-DSB-SC modulation?

Lets say I have a message that is a sine wave at 1KHz. As I understand it, I can perform amplitude modulation by multiplying this signal with a carrier, lets say 10KHz, and this process is essentially ...

### Creating uneven sidebands with AM + PM modulation?

I am trying to modulate an optical signal such that I create a pair of sidebands with arbitrary phase and amplitude with respect to each other. For example I would be like to be able to modulate my ...

### Problem related to phase spectrum of DSB-SC signal

I have tried to solve this question (4.2.3). I got the magnitude spectrum right but the phase spectrum wrong. I am getting the phase spectrum at $\frac{\pi}{4}$ and $- \frac{\pi}{4}$. However, in ...

### Is there any relation between QAM and streaming?

I am trying to determine whether there is any relation between QAM and streaming (e.g., video streaming). I know that QAM can be used for broadcast TV. I'm not sure if QAM is used for WiFi bit ...

### Diode demodulation for AM

What is the capacitor and resistance at output of LPF meant for in the document it was mentioned that it is DC blocker I don't get it can't message contain DC value.
