System Eng. 3.2.1, 3.2.2, 3.3.1, 3.3.3 Supplementary Reading: Comm. System Eng. 3.2.2, 3.2.3 Material covered: 1. Conventional AM Assume that m(t) is scaled so that | m ( t )|<1, then the modulated signal is ) 2 cos( )] ( 1 [ ) ( c c c t f t m A t u + + = The difference with DSB-SC AM is the large carrier term. Fourier domain representation: Derivation: Frequency spectrum: Required bandwidth: 2W. Same as DSB-SC AM. Energy used to send carrier, on top of that for signal. Suitable for AM-radio broadcasting, since there are lots of receivers and only a few transmitters. Modulation index a : minimum value of ) ( t m , say a . We have a < 1. (See picture below); 2. Demodulation of DSB-SC AM- Problem: How can we recover the message ) ( t m from ) 2000 cos( ) ( ) ( t t m t u = ?...
