Physical Layer • Radio frequency introduction • Channel capacity • Modulation and multiplexing .

• Radio frequency ranges 3KHz to 300 GHz. • Can also be expressed as a function of frequency . • Electromagnetic Signal is essentially a function of time.Electromagnetic Signal • Electromagnetic waves travel at the speed of light.1cm. • Wavelength ranges 100 km to 0.

analog or digital signal pattern that repeats over time – • Aperiodic signal .signal intensity varies in a smooth fashion over time • Digital signal .Time-Domain View • Analog signal .signal intensity maintains a constant level for some period of time and then changes to another constant level – No breaks or discontinuities in the signal • Periodic signal .analog or digital signal pattern that doesn't repeat over time • where T is the period of the signal s(t +T ) = s(t ) .

the intensity of the signal varies as a function of distance from the source .Simple example: Sine Wave • RF signal travels at the speed of light • Can look at a point in space: signal amplitude will change in time according to a sine function • Can take a snapshot in time: signal will “look” like a sine function in space – At a particular instant of time.

maximum value or strength of the signal over time.distance occupied by a single cycle of the signal – Or.Parameters of Periodic Signal • Peak amplitude (A) .amount of time it takes for one repetition of the signal • Phase () . in cycles per second. or Hertz (Hz) • Period (T ) .measure of the relative position in time within a single period of a signal • Wavelength () . the distance between two points of corresponding phase of two consecutive cycles – T = 1/f . typically measured in volts • Frequency (f ) – Rate at which the signal repeats.

f = 2. thus T = 1s (b) Reduced peak amplitude.5 (c) Increased frequency. thus T = ½ (d) Phase shift. f = 1 Hz.Sine Wave Parameters • General sine wave – s(t ) = A sin(2ft + ) • The following figure shows the effect of varying each of the three parameters: A. A=0.  – – – – (a) A = 1.  = 0. f.  = /4 radians (45 degrees) • note: 2 radians = 360° = 1 period .

Sine Wave Parameters .

with different amplitudes and phases • The period of the total signal is equal to the period of the fundamental frequency – All other frequencies are integer multiples of the fundamental frequency. .Frequency-Domain Concepts • Any electromagnetic signal can be shown to consist of a collection of sine waves at different frequencies .

The Frequency Domain • A signal can be viewed as a sum of sine waves of different strengths. – Corresponds to energy at a certain frequency .

The Frequency Domain • Signal = sum of sine waves .

when all frequency components of a signal are integer multiples of one frequency.width of the spectrum of a signal • Effective bandwidth (or just bandwidth) .Frequency-Domain Concepts • Fundamental frequency . it’s referred to as the fundamental frequency • Spectrum .range of frequencies that a signal contains • Absolute bandwidth .narrow band of frequencies that most of the signal’s energy is contained in .

Modulation and Multiplexing .

Analog Signals • Analog Signals: continuously varying. depending on frequency • Examples of media: – Copper wire media – Fiber optical cable – Wireless: Atmosphere or space propagation • Cannot recover from distortion or noise . may be propagated over a variety of media.

Digital Signals • Digital Signals: A sequence of voltage pulses that may be transmitted over a copper wire medium – Generally cheaper than analog signaling – Less susceptible to noise interference – Can regenerate digital signal along the path (repeater vs amplifier) .

• Frequency (FM) and phase modulation (PM): change the frequency or phase of the signal • Can also combine modulation types. . • Amplitude modulation (AM): change the strength of the carrier based on the information to be sent. typically between on and off.Modulation • Modulation: Sender changes the nature of the signal in a way that the receiver can recognize.

Amplitude and Frequency Modulation .

optical • Carrier modulation: use the signal (information to be sent) to modulate a higher frequency signal (carrier).g.g. e. – E.. some media only transmit higher frequencies. • Baseband modulation has limited use – E. – Can be viewed as the product of the two signals – Corresponds to a shift in the frequency domain • Same idea applies to frequency and phase modulation. change frequency of the carrier instead of its amplitude .Baseband vs Carrier Modulation • Baseband modulation: send the “bare” signal.g.

Amplitude Carrier Modulation Amplitude Signal Carrier Frequency Amplitude Modulated Carrier .

Multiple Channels Determines Bandwidth of Link Amplitude Frequency Determines Bandwidth of Channel Different Carrier Frequencies .

Multiplexing • Capacity of transmission medium usually exceeds capacity required for transmission of a single signal • Multiplexing .carrying multiple signals on a single medium – More efficient use of transmission medium .

Multiplexing Techniques • Frequency-division multiplexing (FDM) – Useful when bandwidth exceeds the required bandwidth of a given signal – Divide the capacity in the frequency domain • Time-division multiplexing (TDM) – Divide the capacity in the time domain – Fixed or variable length time slices .

Frequency-division Multiplexing .

Time-division Multiplexing .

• The two solutions can be combined . – Hardware is slightly more expensive • Time-division multiplexing: – Different users send at different times – Each user can send at full speed at some of the time – There is some transition time between time slots.Frequency-division vs Time-division • Frequency-division multiplexing: – Different users use different parts of the frequency spectrum – Each user can send all the time at reduced rate.
