Hi list, I understand the meaning of spatial diversity and frequency diversity. I'm in search of a proper definition for "Modulation Diversity". I know that such a thing exists (Google told me), but I'm not able to find the definition or at least understand from some of the papers which mention this term. Any directions? Best Regards, Nagaraj

Hello friends, I am little confused that why do we always apply fourier transform for amplitude modulation, frequency modulation why not laplace transform. Second question is that when I studied control system then everywhere Laplace Transform is used. So please tell me why we use LT in controls and why FT in communication.

Hello, I am developing a software modulator and am currently working on the qpsk portion of it. This problem will apply to pretty much all modulation schemes however. Let me first explain my algorithm: This program needs to be very fast (capable 100 mhz sampling rates) so I am pregenerating all of my samples. The user inputs the center frequency and the sampling rate and I fill a seri...

As was kindly suggested to me, I've been experimenting with OFDM for my TCP/IP over tin cans project. Since the modulation on the "wire" is at baseband, and I'm using a sound card as a DAC, this means my signals are audible. When modulating a random bitstream, the resulting audio is full of popping noises. I have taken steps to ensure that no clipping is occurring, so these pops are really...

Sirs, Let me first say that probably this is a very basic question. In case of modulating carrier signals with data and doing de-modulation at the receiver, what would be the disadvantage if data is simply added to the carrier frequency and then performing filtering at the receiver to remove the carrier signal and recover the data. Thanks, manish

A baseband signal m(t) that has a Gaussian (amplitude) distribution frequency modulates a transmitter. Assume that the modulation has a zero-mean value and a peak value of Vp = 4*(sigma). The FM signal is transmitted over an additive white Gaussian noise channel. Let Beta = 3 and B = 15KHz. Find (S/N)out/(S/N)baseband when: A. No deemphasis is used. B. 75-u sec deemphasis is used.

A Bell 202T modem uses FSK modulation (1200HZ, 2200HZ) and send data at up to 1800 bits per second. I need to replace an "analog" version of this with a digital version, sampling the phone line with an A/D and "decoding" the 1's and 0's in firmware (ARM C). My question is how.. The modulation index is too narrow to count zero crossings, so I believe I need a "phase coherent decoder"...

Hello, I am a bit unsure how the demodulator recovers the original IQ modulation frequency of a DVB-T baseband signal. In the standard the frequency "fc" is (IMHO) not specified, however there could be read (ETSI EN 300 744 V1.5.1 (2004-06), Page 45) "A subsequent up-conversion process then gives the real signal s(t) centred on the frequency fc". So it should be correct to look for the "ce...

Hello All, The classical modulation scheme is defined as, x(n)*cos(w_0*n) 0.5*[X(w+w_0) + X(w-w_0)] - eq(1) Similarly, text books also define frequency shifting as, x(n)*exp(j*w_0*n) X(w-w_0) - eq(2) It appears to me that scheme in eq(2) is much cleaner way of modulating a signal than scheme in eq(1). Second scheme requires complex multiplication in time while first sche

Hi all. I am starting out on signal processing. Conceptionally I think I understand the advantages of pulse shaping and raised cosine. But I am not clear where this is used in practice. Is pulse shaping just used on purely digital transmission i.e. A pulse train. Or is it combined with digital to analog modulation. E.g. QPSK. Any help would be much appreciated.

Humans resolve 2 nearly equal musical tones by listening for the "beat" notes (given that trigonometry formulas indicate that adding 2 sinusoids is equivalent to modulating one sinusoid).

If the envelope fits some fraction of one full cycle of modulation, t...
