AM is noisy than FM.Operate in very high frequency band (VHF): 88MHz-108MHzCan transmit musical programs with higher degree of fidelity.fidelityEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
5 Principles of FMA sine wave carrier can be modified for the purpose of transmitting information from one place to another by varying its frequency. This is known as frequency modulation (FM).In FM, the carrier amplitude remains constant and the carrier frequency is changed by the modulating signalEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
6 Principles of FMAs the amplitude of the information signal varies, the carrier frequency shifts proportionately.As the modulating signal amplitude increases, the carrier frequency increases.With no modulation the carrier is at its normal center or resting frequencyEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
7 Principles of FMFrequency deviation (fd) is the amount of change in carrier frequency produced by the modulating signal.The frequency deviation rate is how many times per second the carrier frequency deviates above or below its center frequency.The frequency of the modulating signal determines the frequency deviation rate.A type of modulation called frequency-shift keying (FSK) is used in transmission of binary data in digital cell phones and low- speed computer modems.
8 Principles of FM Carrier Modulating Signal FM signal EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
9 Principles of Phase Modulation When the amount of phase shift of a constant-frequency carrier is varied in accordance with a modulating signal, the resulting output is a phase-modulation (PM) signal.Phase modulators produce a phase shift which is a time separation between two sine waves of the same frequency.The greater the amplitude of the modulating signal, the greater the phase shift.
10 Principles of Phase Modulation The maximum frequency deviation produced by a phase modulator occurs during the time that the modulating signal is changing at its most rapid rate.
11 Principles of Phase Modulation Figure : A frequency shift occurs in PM only when the modulating signal amplitude varies. (a) Modulating signal. (b) FM signal. (c) PM signal.
12 Principles of Phase Modulation Converting PM into FMIn order to make PM compatible with FM, the deviation produced by frequency variations in the modulating signal must be compensated for.This compensation can be accomplished by passing the intelligence signal through a low-pass RC network.This RC low-pass filter is called a frequency- correcting network, predistorter, or 1/f filter and causes the higher modulating frequencies to be attenuated.The FM produced by a phase modulator is called indirect FM.
13 Principles of Phase Modulation Phase-Shift KeyingThe process of phase modulating a carrier with binary data is called phase-shift keying (PSK) or binary phase-shift keying (BPSK).The PSK signal has a constant frequency, but the phase of the signal from some reference changes as the binary modulating signal occurs.
14 Principles of Phase Modulation Figure: Phase modulation of a carrier by binary data produces PSK.

16 Mathematical analysis of FM During the process of frequency modulations the frequency of carrier signal is changed in accordance with the instantaneous amplitude of message signal. Therefore the frequency of carrier after modulation is written asTo find the instantaneous phase angle of modulated signal, integrate equation above w.r.t. tEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
17 Mathematical analysis of FM Thus, we get the FM wave as:Where modulation index for FM is given byK1 = rad/s/VEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering

22 Example 2 (PM)Determine the peak phase deviation (m) for a PM modulator with a deviation sensitivity K = 2.5 rad/V and a modulating signal,EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
24 Modulation Index and Sidebands Any modulation process produces sidebands.When a constant-frequency sine wave modulates a carrier, two side frequencies are produced.Side frequencies are the sum and difference of the carrier and modulating frequency.The bandwidth of an FM signal is usually much wider than that of an AM signal with the same modulating signal.
25 Modulation Index and Sidebands The ratio of the frequency deviation to the modulating frequency is known as the modulation index (mf).In most communication systems using FM, maximum limits are put on both the frequency deviation and the modulating frequency.In standard FM broadcasting, the maximum permitted frequency deviation is 75 kHz and the maximum permitted modulating frequency is 15 kHz.The modulation index for standard FM broadcasting is therefore 5.
26 Modulation Index and Sidebands Bessel FunctionsThe equation that expresses the phase angle in terms of the sine wave modulating signal is solved with a complex mathematical process known as Bessel functions.Bessel coefficients are widely available and it is not necessary to memorize or calculate them.
27 FM&PM (Bessel function) Thus, for general equation:EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
28 Bessel functionEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
29 B.F. (cont’d)It is seen that each pair of side band is preceded by J coefficients. The order of the coefficient is denoted by subscript m. The Bessel function can be written asN = number of the side frequencyMf = modulation indexEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
30 Modulation Index and Sidebands Bessel FunctionsThe symbol ! means factorial. This tells you to multiply all integers from 1 through the number to which the symbol is attached. (e.g. 5! Means 1 × 2 × 3 × 4 × 5 = 120)Narrowband FM (NBFM) is any FM system in which the modulation index is less than π/2 = 1.57, ormf < π /2.NBFM is widely used in communication. It conserves spectrum space at the expense of the signal-to-noise ratio.

34 Example 3For an FM modulator with a modulation index m = 1, a modulating signal vm(t) = Vm sin(2π1000t), and an unmodulated carrier vc(t) = 10 sin(2π500kt). Determine the number of sets of significant side frequencies and their amplitudes. Then, draw the frequency spectrum showing their relative amplitudes.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering

36 FM BandwidthTheoretically, the generation and transmission of FM requires infinite bandwidth. Practically, FM system have finite bandwidth and they perform well.The value of modulation index determine the number of sidebands that have the significant relative amplitudesIf n is the number of sideband pairs, and line of frequency spectrum are spaced by fm, thus, the bandwidth is:For n≥1EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
37 FM Bandwidth (cont’d) Estimation of transmission b/w; Assume mf is large and n is approximate mf + 2; thusBfm=2(mf + 2)fm=(1) is called Carson’s ruleEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
38 Example 4For an FM modulator with a peak frequency deviation, Δf = 10 kHz, a modulating-signal frequency fm = 10 kHz,Vc = 10 V and a 500 kHz carrier, determineActual minimum bandwidth from the Bessel function table.Approximate minimum bandwidth using Carson’s rule.Plot the output frequency spectrum for the Bessel approximation.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering

42 FM Power DistributionAs seen in Bessel function table, it shows that as the sideband relative amplitude increases, the carrier amplitude,J0 decreases.This is because, in FM, the total transmitted power is always constant and the total average power is equal to the unmodulated carrier power, that is the amplitude of the FM remains constant whether or not it is modulated.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
43 FM Power Distribution (cont’d) In effect, in FM, the total power that is originally in the carrier is redistributed between all components of the spectrum, in an amount determined by the modulation index, mf, and the corresponding Bessel functions.At certain value of modulation index, the carrier component goes to zero, where in this condition, the power is carried by the sidebands only.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
44 Average Power The average power in unmodulated carrier The total instantaneous power in the angle modulated carrier.The total modulated powerPo = (Jo*Vc)^2/2R, Pn = 2(Jn*Vn)^2/2RAVERAGE POWER = ~ UNMODULATED CARRIER POWEREKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
45 Example 6For an FM modulator with a modulation index m = 1, a modulating signalvm(t) = Vmsin(2π1000t)and an unmodulated carriervc(t) = 10sin(2π500kt)Determine the unmodulated carrier power for the FM modulator given with a load resistance, RL = 50Ω. Determine also the total power in the angle-modulated wave.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering

52 Armstrong ModulatorA complete Armstrong modulator is supposed to provide a 75kHz frequency deviation. It uses a balanced modulator and 90o phase shifter to phase-modulate a crystal oscillator. Required deviation is obtained by combination of multipliers and mixing, raise the signal fromsuitable for broadcasting.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
53 Generation of FM and PMEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
54 FM Detection/Demodulation FM demodulationis a process of getting back or regenerate the original modulating signal from the modulated FM signal.It can be achieved by converting the frequency deviation of FM signal to the variation of equivalent voltage.The demodulator will produce an output where its instantaneous amplitude is proportional to the instantaneous frequency of the input FM signal.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
55 FM detection (cont’d)To detect an FM signal, it is necessary to have a circuit whose output voltage varies linearly with the frequency of the input signal.The most commonly used demodulator is the PLL demodulator. Can be use to detect either NBFM or WBFM.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
56 PLL Demodulator fvco V0(t) FM input Low pass Amplifier fi Phase filter detectorfvcoVCOVc(t)EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
57 PLL DemodulatorThe phase detector produces an average output voltage that is linear function of the phase difference between the two input signals. Then low frequency component is pass through the LPF to get a small dc average voltage to the amplifier.After amplification, part of the signal is fed back through VCO where it results in frequency modulation of the VCO frequency. When the loop is in lock, the VCO frequency follows or tracks the incoming frequency.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
58 PLL Demodulator Let instantaneous freq of FM Input, fi(t)=fc +k1vm(t), and the VCO output frequency,f VCO(t)=f0 + k2Vc(t);f0 is the free running frequency.For the VCO frequency to track the instantaneous incoming frequency,fvco = fi; or ???EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
59 PLL Demodulator f0 + k2Vc(t)= fc +k1vm(t), so, If VCO can be tuned so that fc=f0, thenWhere Vc(t) is also taken as the output voltage, which therefore is the demodulated outputEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
60 Noise in FMNoise is interference generated by lightning, motors, automotive ignition systems, and power line switching that produces transient signals.Noise is typically narrow spikes of voltage with high frequencies.Noise (voltage spikes) add to a signal and interfere with it.Some noise completely obliterates signal information.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
61 Noise in FMIn AM systems, noise easily distorts the transmitted signal however, in FM systems any added noise must create a frequency deviation in order to be perceptible.θEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
62 Noise in FM(Cont’d) δ = θfm The maximum frequency deviation due to random noise occurs when the noise is at right angles to the resultant signal. In the worst case the signal frequency has been deviated by:δ = θfmThis shows that the deviation due to noise increases as the modulation frequency increases. Since noise power is the square of the noise voltage, the signal to noise ratio can significantly degrade.Noise occurs predominantly at the highest frequencies within the basebandEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
63 Noise-Suppression Effects of FM FM signals have a constant modulated carrier amplitude.FM receivers contain limiter circuits that deliberately restrict the amplitude of the received signal.Any amplitude variations occurring on the FM signal are effectively clipped by limiter circuits.This amplitude clipping does not affect the information content of the FM signal, since it is contained solely within the frequency variations of the carrier.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
64 Noise-Suppression Effects of FM Figure 5-11: An FM signal with noise.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
65 Noise-Suppression Effects of FM PreemphasisNoise can interfere with an FM signal and particularly with the high-frequency components of the modulating signal.Noise is primarily sharp spikes of energy and contains a lot of harmonics and other high-frequency components.To overcome high-frequency noise, a technique known as preemphasis is used.A simple high-pass filter can serve as a transmitter’s pre-emphasis circuit.Pre-emphasis provides more amplification of only high-frequency components.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
66 Noise-Suppression Effects of FM Preemphasis circuit.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
67 Noise-Suppression Effects of FM PreemphasisA simple low-pass filter can operate as a deemphasis circuit in a receiver.A deemphasis circuit returns the frequency response to its normal flat level.The combined effect of preemphasis and deemphasis is to increase the signal-to-noise ratio for the high-frequency components during transmission so that they will be stronger and not masked by noise.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
68 Noise-Suppression Effects of FM Deemphasis circuit.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
69 FM threshold effectIn FM systems where the signal level is well above noise received carrier-to-noise ratio and demodulated signal-to-noise ratio are related by:= signal-to-noise ratio at output of FM demodulator= modulation index= carrier-to-noise ratio at input of FM demodulatorDoes not apply when the carrier-to-noise ratio decreases below a certain point. Below this critical point the signal-to-noise ratio decreases significantly.Known as the FM threshold effect(FM threshold is usually defined as the carrier-to-noise ratio at which the demodulated signal-to-noise ratio fall 1 dB below the linear relationship given in equation. It generally is considered to occur at about 10 dB).EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
70 Below the FM threshold point the noise signal (whose amplitude and phase are randomly varying), may instantaneously have an amplitude greater than that of the wanted signal.When this happens the noise will produce a sudden change in the phase of the FM demodulator output.In an audio system this sudden phase change makes a "click". In video, the term "click noise" is used to describe short horizontal black and white lines that appear randomly over a picture.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
71 Nonlinear Effect in FMStrong nonlinearity; intentionally introduced in a controlled manner. It is introduced for particular application e.g. square law modulators, hard-limiters and frequency multipliers.Weak nonlinearity; introduced because of imperfections in the communication channel. Such linearities reduce the useful signal levels.In next slide, we will examine the effects of weak nonlinearities on FM signalEKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering

74 Application of FMFM is commonly used at VHF radio frequencies for high-fidelity broadcasts of music and speech (FM broadcasting). Normal (analog) TV sound is also broadcast using FM. The type of FM used in broadcast is generally called wide-FM, or W-FMA narrowband form is used for voice communications in commercial and amateur radio settings. In two-way radio, narrowband narrow-fm (N-FM) is used to conserve bandwidth. In addition, it is used to send signals into space.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
75 Frequency Modulation Versus Amplitude Modulation Major applications of AM and FM
76 AdvantagesWideband FM gives significant improvement in the SNR at the output of the RX which proportional to the square of modulation index.Angle modulation is resistant to propagation-induced selective fading since amplitude variations are unimportant and are removed at the receiver using a limiting circuit.Angle modulation is very effective in rejecting interference. (minimizes the effect of noise).Angle modulation allows the use of more efficient transmitter power in information.Angle modulation is capable of handing a greater dynamic range of modulating signal without distortion than AM.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
77 DisadvantagesAngle modulation requires a transmission bandwidth much larger than the message signal bandwidth.Angle modulation requires more complex and expensive circuits than AM.EKT343 –Principle of Communication Engineering
