illustrates the circuit of modulating amplifier employing a transistor as an active device inCE mode. R
establish a quiescent forward bias for the transistor. The modulating signal fed at theemitter section causes the bias to increase or decrease in accordance with the modulating signal. C
is bypasscapacitor for carrier. Thus the carrier signal applied at the base gets amplified more when the amplitude of the modulating signal is at its maximum and less when the amplitude of the modulating signal is small. C
couples the modulated signal to output of the modulator. Demodulation
involves two operations.i)Rectification of the modulated signal andii)Elimination of RF components of the rectified signal.Turbomachinery Institute Science & Technology 3 Dept. of
