It allows parallel transmission of multiple channels. x 1 (t) x 2 (t) x 3 (t) z 1 (t) z 2 (t) z(t) y(t) z 3 (t) cos 1 t cos 2 t cos c t cos 3 t LPF Superheterodyne Receiver Edwin Howard Armstrong invented the superheterodyne receiver, which made broadcast AM practical. Edwin Howard Armstrong also invented and patented the regenerative (positive feedback) circuit for amplifying radio signals (while he was a junior at Columbia University). He also in- vented wide-band FM. Amplitude, Phase, and Frequency Modulation There are many ways to embed a message in a carrier. Here are three. Amplitude Modulation (AM): y 1 ( t ) = x ( t ) cos( c t ) Phase Modulation (PM): y 2 ( t ) = cos( c t + kx ( t )) t Frequency Modulation (FM): y 3...
