Wideband FM bandwidth estimation

In the book Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems by B. P Lathi, there is a section for the estimation of WBFM bandwidth. First, the staircase approximation of $m(t)$ is constructed by the ...

Non-coherent FSK and Orthogonality and square-law detectors

This is a basic figure that explains how Non-Coherent FSK actually works. The incoming signal $ r (t)=\sqrt{2 P}{Cos}(2 \pi t (\text{fc}+\text{fi})+\text{n(t)}$ where P denotes the signal power in ...

Instantaneous frequency, PLLs, frequency mixing, cross-correlation and the cross-correlation matrix

This is as much a request for comment and critique as anything else. I am looking at tracking how a system perturbs an input that is a (real) sinoid of varying frequency. ...

Digital FM Demodulation

I have created a Common Lisp Library to receive samples of an FM signal from BladeRF1 SDR. I want to write a subroutine to implement FM demodulation. The input should be in the format of IQ data. ...

Help in identifying low speed image transmission protocol over RF

In the seventies I worked for Muirhead on press fax machines that used to transmit pictures over radio and landline as I recall two FM systems were used a carrier 800 Hz modulated +- 150 Hz and 1900Hz ...

Spectrum of WBFM signal for triangular message signal spectrum

We Know: Frequency Modulated signal is given by: $$s_{FM} (t)=A_{c} \sin \{ w_c t + 2 \pi k_f \int m(t) \, dt \}$$ Now, if $ \quad m(t)= A_m \cos(w_m t)$ , i.e, its spectrum $M(f)$: then, $$s_{FM} (t)...

low-frequency amplitude with phase modulation of low Hz carrier

I am writing an FM/PM synthesizer, using Java. For the most part it works pretty well. What I am curious about is an attempt to use a low frequency tone as a carrier. By low frequency, I mean in the ...

Angle harmonic distortion in FM modulation

As you know the output form of FM modulator is something like this: $$s(t)=A_{C}\cos(2\pi F_{c}t+\beta \sin(2\pi F_{m}t))$$ where $\beta$ is the phase deviation. I want to know why in this book the ...

Wideband FM generation problem

What I found out: The order of the multiplier would be $n=5$. The two LO frequencies can be 90 MHz and 80 MHz. The bandwidth is given by $BW = 2(B_f+1)W $ Where W is the modulation bandwidth given ...

Better way for fine-tuning to FM signal

I'm looking at fine tuning the frequency to a known FM broadcast automatically. (from complex signal) My beginner's idea is to either: lowpass filter to get ~2x the bandwidth visible do the frequency ...
