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 ...

Which equipment to use for testing performance of AM, FM, and DAB

I want to test the performance of AM, FM and DAB radio in RTL-SDR. I want to measure sensitivity, adjacent channel selectivity, cross-modulation/blocking, and third-order intermodulation to be some of ...

What's the maximum allowable amplitude modulation frequency for a given carrier frequency?

I'm currently studying wavelets and had an interesting thought experiment: If you were to calculate the wavelet transform of a signal using a wavelet of a fixed frequency, you would get time varying ...

Deriving SER & BER for 4QAM, 16QAM and 32QAM

Required to find symbol error rate vs $E_b/N_0$ for 4QAM, 16QAM & 32QAM. Thought that SER & BER are the same but did my research to find that BER is $1/\log_2(M)$ of SER. Could you please ...
