FM Modulator and Demodulator Review of FM FM modulator –Direct FM –Indirect FM FM demodulator –Direct: use frequency discriminator (frequency-voltage converter) –Ratio detector –Zero crossing detector –Indirect: using PLL Superheterodyne receiver FM broadcasting and Satellite radio Project 1
Review of last class PLL and math Instantaneous frequency FM and PM Modulation index Narrow band FM characteristics Carson’s rule ECE 4371 Fall 2008 LPF VCO
FM Direct Modulator Direct FM –Carrier frequency is directly varied by the message through voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) –VCO: output frequency changes linearly with input voltage –A simple VCO: implemented by variable capacitor –Capacitor Microphone FM generator
FM Direct Modulator cont. Direct method is simple, low cost, but lack of high stability & accuracy, low power application, unstable at the carrier frequency Modern VCOs are usually implemented as PLL IC Why VCO generates FM signal?
Indirect FM Generate NBFM first, then NBFM is frequency multiplied for targeted Δf. Good for the requirement of stable carrier frequency Commercial-level FM broadcasting equipment all use indirect FM A typical indirect FM implementation: Armstrong FM Block diagram of indirect FM
Indirect FM cont. First, generate NBFM signal with a very small β 1 m(t)
Indirect FM cont. Then, apply frequency multiplier to magnify β –Instantaneous frequency is multiplied by n –So do carrier frequency, Δf, and β –What about bandwidth?
Armstrong FM Modulator Invented by E. Armstrong, an indirect FM A popular implementation of commercial level FM Parameter: message W=15 kHz, FM s(t): Δf=74.65 kHz. Can you find the Δf at (a)-(d)?
FM Demodulator Four primary methods –Differentiator with envelope detector/Slope detector u FM to AM conversion –Phase-shift discriminator/Ratio detector u Approximates the differentiator –Zero-crossing detector –Frequency feedback u Phase lock loops (PLL)
FM Slope Demodulator Principle: use slope detector (slope circuit) as frequency discriminator, which implements frequency to voltage conversion (FVC) –Slope circuit: output voltage is proportional to the input frequency. Example: filters, differentiator

Bandpass Limiter A device that imposes hard limiting on a signal and contains a filter that suppresses the unwanted products (harmonics) of the limiting process.limitingsignal filter Input Signal Output of bandpass limiter Bandpass filter Remove the amplitude variations
Ratio Detector Foster-Seeley/phase shift discriminator –uses a double-tuned transformer to convert the instantaneous frequency variations of the FM input signal to instantaneous amplitude variations. These amplitude variations are rectified to provide a DC output voltage which varies in amplitude and polarity with the input signal frequency. –Example Ratio detector –Modified Foster-Seeley discriminator, not response to AM, but 50%
FM Demodulator PLL Phase-locked loop (PLL) –A closed-loop feedback control circuit, make a signal in fixed phase (and frequency) relation to a reference signal u Track frequency (or phase) variation of inputs u Or, change frequency (or phase) according to inputs –PLL can be used for both FM modulator and demodulator u Just as Balanced Modulator IC can be used for most amplitude modulations and demodulations
PLL FM Remember the following relations –Si=Acos(w c t+ 1 (t)), Sv=A v cos(w c t+ c (t)) –Sp=0.5AA v [sin(2w c t+ 1 + c )+sin( 1 - c )] –So=0.5AA v sin( 1 - c )=AA v ( 1 - c )
Superheterodyne Receiver Radio receiver’s main function –Demodulation get message signal –Carrier frequency tuning select station –Filtering remove noise/interference –Amplification combat transmission power loss Superheterodyne receiver –Heterodyne: mixing two signals for new frequency –Superheterodyne receiver: heterodyne RF signals with local tuner, convert to common IF –Invented by E. Armstrong in 1918.
Advantage of superheterodyne receiver A signal block (of circuit) can hardly achieve all: selectivity, signal quality, and power amplification Superheterodyne receiver deals them with different blocks RF blocks: selectivity only IF blocks: filter for high signal quality, and amplification, use circuits that work in only a constant IF, not a large band
FM Broadcasting The frequency of an FM broadcast station is usually an exact multiple of 100 kHz from 87.5 to 108.5 MHz. In most of the Americas and Caribbean only odd multiples are used.the AmericasCaribbean f m =15KHz, f=75KHz, =5, B=2(f m + f)=180kHz Pre-emphasis and de-emphasis –Random noise has a 'triangular' spectral distribution in an FM system, with the effect that noise occurs predominantly at the highest frequencies within the baseband. This can be offset, to a limited extent, by boosting the high frequencies before transmission and reducing them by a corresponding amount in the receiver.noisespectralfrequenciesbasebandtransmission Block diagram and spectrum Relation of stereo transmission and monophonic transmission
