In a simple amplitude modulation (AM) process, a received radio signal has the form v r ( t ) = v m (1 + m sin m t )sin c t , where c is the carrier angular frequency (to which the radio is tuned), m is the modulating angular frequency of the signal with information content, and constant m is the modulation index (0 m 1). In what follows, let c and m correspond to 10kHz and 1kHz frequencies, respectively. In practice, c is significantly larger, and m is part of a spectrum with particular v m weightings. (a) Use SPICE to plot v r ( t ) over two m periods. Assume that the signal is applied to a 1k load, and let m = 1....
