Frequency modulation and demodulation

Frequency Modulation In angle modulation, the amplitude of the signal is held constant and the phase is being varied with the message. An angle modulated signal is of the form: (1 ) The instantaneous phase of xc(t) is given by (2 ) and the instantaneous frequency is given by (3 )

Using this approach, if the message is proportional to φ(t), which is the phase deviation, then we have phase modulation. If the message is proportional to , which is the frequency deviation, then we have frequency modulation. In order to have phase modulation, (4 ) where kp is known as the deviation constant. For frequency modulation, (5 )

where kf is known as the frequency deviation constant. Consequently, an FM modulated signal is of the form (6 )

An FM signal is shown in Figure 1

Frequency Demodulation There are several ways to demodulate an FM signal. The simplest way is to use a differentiator followed by an AM detector do demodulate and FM signal as shown in Figure 2

In order to implement the above the frequency discriminator, we need to design a differentiator. Circuit diagram:

Discussion: 1. FM technique is more reliable than AM technique as, FM signal is noise immune. 2. As the signal power of FM signal is low, this signal cannot be transmitted to large distances.
