Frequency Modulation

Analog and Digital Communications

Autumn 2005-2006

CS477: Analog and Digital Communications

- Exponential modulation is non-linear
- Bandwidth of the transmitted signals depends upon the amplitude of the information signal
- Hard to analyze with Fourier transforms

- Narrowband approximation makes analysis a little easier NBFM and NBPM
- For narrowband approximation to hold:

CS477: Analog and Digital Communications

Consider the bandpass transmitted signal:

For narrowband approximation:

Thus, for NBFM and NBPM:

depends upon the allowable distortion level

Usually approximated by

For worst case, use:

What is the corresponding value of

NO! A smaller may result in larger

Is this the maximum value?

CS477: Analog and Digital Communications

Use

For practical systems :

Estimate BW using worst case tone modulation!

Define Deviation ratio:

Approximations:

Carson’s rule:

Carson’s rule is applied for extreme values of deviation

ratio. It underestimates the BW for practical systems.

CS477: Analog and Digital Communications

- Direct method
- Use a voltage-controlled oscillator
- Output frequency is proportional to input voltage
- Use information signal as the input voltage

- Restricted to low power applications
- Most circuits unstable at carrier frequency
- Not suitable for commercial FM broadcast
- Require sophisticated feedback control

- Use a voltage-controlled oscillator
