Angle modulation

COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS Angle modulation is the process by which the phase

angle of a carrier is varied according to the message
Lecture # 8
Angle modulation is sub-classified into frequency
modulation (FM) and phase modulation (PM).
24th Feb 2007 In PM, the instantaneous phase deviation of the carrier is
proportional to the message signal.
Instructor In FM, the instantaneous frequency deviation of the
WASEEM KHAN carrier is proportional to the message signal.

Message signal
If m(t) is the message signal, then instantaneous phase
deviation is 0.5

(t) = kpm(t)
where kp is the phase deviation constant or phase sensitivity.
Hence phase modulated carrier is written as 0 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1

Frequency Modulation Frequency Modulation

If m(t) is the message signal, then instantaneous frequency xFM(t) = cos[ i(t)]
deviation is t
f (t) = kf m(t) x FM cos 2 f i ( t ) dt
and the instantaneous frequency is 0

fi (t) = fc + f (t) = fc + kf m(t) t

where kf is frequency deviation constant or frequency sensitivity and cos 2 fc kfm t dt

fc is carrier frequency.

where fmax is the highest frequency content in the

message signal.

<<1 corresponds to narrowband FM (frequency

deviation is very small as compared to message signal

>>1 corresponds to wideband FM (frequency deviation

Message signal and modulated carrier is very large as compared to message signal frequency)

FM Demodulation Superheterodyne Receiver

A superheterodyne receiver converts the received RF signal to an
intermediate frequency (IF) first.
Differentiated FM signal varies in both amplitude and

fIF = fRF -fLO


In the second stage, after necessary filtering, IF signal is demodulated to get

the baseband signal.
Envelope obtained due to variable amplitude is It is used for demodulating amplitude as well as angle modulated signals.

Tunable oscillator is used to tune a particular channel; as fLO varies, received
fRF changes accordingly (fIF remains constant).
