1 Amplitude Modulation

2 Basic AM Modulation Amplitude Spectrum Modulation index Carrier
Sideband Modulation index 0 < m < 1 How to measure? Modulated carrier vs baseband signal What happens when m>1?

3 Waveforms Base Band and Modulation m = 100% m = 120% Math Real

4 Spectrum Double Side Band Full Carrier Spectrum LSB, USB, Carrier

5 Efficiency Efficiency in Using Bandwidth? Efficiency in Using Power?
Two side bands Efficiency in Using Power? Carrier Side band Information in side band Carrier for synchronization
