Lecture S17 Muddiest Points General Comments Today, we began talking about amplitude modulation (AM). We looked at double sideband / suppressed carrier amplitude modulation. We also looked at coherent demodulation of AM-DSB/SC signals. Responses to Muddiest-Part-of-the-Lecture Cards (7 cards) 1. So the reason you can’t make [an ideal low-pass filter] is because the inverse Fourier transform is noncausal? (1 student) Exactly. The impulse response of an ideal low-pass filter is a sinc function, which is noncausal, and therefore cannot be implemented in real time. 2. Why did we start with x ( t ) just to end up with x ( t ) [when we were doing modulation and demodulation]? (1) The point is that we modulate the signal in order to allow it to be transmitted via radio frequency waves. At the receiving end, we demodulate the signal, and of course hope to recover the same x ( t ) that we used as a modulating signal to begin with. 3. Cool radio demonstration. Why did what the scope showed change about halfway through lecture? (1) Thanks! The scope changed, I

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
