Digital-to-analog modulation

Modulation
Converting digital signals to analog signals is called modulation.
Example
Transmition of data from one computer to another computer using
telephone line. The digital data is modulated on an analog signal.

VTU NOTES
Types of digital-to-analog modulation
Modulating techniques are
1) Amplitude Shift Keying (ASK)
2) Frequency Shift Keying (FSK)
3) Phase Shift Keying (PSK)
4) Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM)

VTU NOTES
Bit rate is the number of bits transmitted per second.
Baud rate is the number of signal elements transmitted
per second. A signal element carries one or more bits.
Baud rate = The bit rate / Number of bits
represented by each signal unit.
Baud rate is less than or equal to the bit rate.

VTU NOTES
Example
An analog signal carries 4 bits in each signal unit. If 1000
signal units are sent per second, find the baud rate and the
bit rate
Solution
Baud rate = 1000 bauds per second (baud/s)
Bit rate = 1000 x 4 = 4000 bps

VTU NOTES
Example
The bit rate of a signal is 3000. If each signal unit carries
6 bits, what is the baud rate?
Solution
Baud rate = Bit rate / Number of bits represented by each signal unit.
Baud rate = 3000 / 6 = 500 baud/s

Carrier Signal
In analog transmission, the sending device produces a
high frequency signal that acts as a basis for the
information signal . This base signal is called as
carrier signal or carrier frequency.

The receiving device is tuned to the frequency of the
carrier signal of the sender.

The digital information then modulates the carrier
signal by modifying one or more of its characteristics
( amplitude, frequency or phase). This modification is
called modulation ( or Shift key).

www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Amplitude Shift Keying (ASK / BASK)
In ASK, the frequency & phase of the carrier signal remain
constant and amplitude changes to represent the bit 1 or 0. A Zero
amplitude represents bit 0 and max amplitude represent bit 1. A bit
duration is the period of time that defines 1 bit. The amplitude of the bit
during each duration is constant. In ASK baud rate and bit rate are same.
ASK is susceptible for noise.
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Relationship between baud rate and bandwidth in ASK
Bandwidth of a signal is the total range of frequencies occupied
by that signal. The most significant frequencies are between
f
c
N
baud
/2 + f
c
+N
baud
/2

, f
c
is the carrier frequency. In ASK,
BW = (1+d) x N
baud
, where N
baud
is the baud rate, d is the factor related to
the modulation process.
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Example
Find the minimum bandwidth for an ASK signal
transmitting at 2000 bps. The transmission mode is
half-duplex.
Solution
In ASK the baud rate and bit rate are the same. The
baud rate is therefore 2000. An ASK signal requires a
minimum bandwidth equal to its baud rate.
Therefore, the minimum bandwidth is 2000 Hz.
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Example
Given a bandwidth of 5000 Hz for an ASK signal, what
are the baud rate and bit rate?
Solution
In ASK the baud rate is the same as the bandwidth,
which means the baud rate is 5000. But because the baud
rate and the bit rate are also the same for ASK, the bit
rate is 5000 bps.
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Example
Given a bandwidth of 10,000 Hz (1000 to 11,000 Hz),
draw the full-duplex ASK diagram of the system. Find the
carriers and the bandwidths in each direction. Assume
there is no gap between the bands in the two directions.
Solution
For full-duplex ASK, the bandwidth allocated for each
direction is BW = 10000 / 2 = 5000 Hz
The carrier frequencies can be chosen at the middle of
each band,
fc (forward) = 1000 + 5000/2 = 3500 Hz
fc (backward) = 11000 5000/2 = 8500 Hz
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Solution to Example
In data communication we use full duplex links with
communication in both directions. Then we divide the bandwidth
into two with two carrier frequencies.

VTU NOTES
Frequency Shift Keying ( FSK /BFSK)
In FSK, the Amplitude & phase of the carrier signal remain
constant and frequency changes to represent the bit 1 or 0.The
frequency of the signal during each bit duration is constant.
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Relationship between baud rate and bandwidth in FSK
FSK spectra is a combination of two ASK spectra centered on
f
c0
and f
c1
. Frequencies are between fc0 N baud /2 & f
c1
+Nbaud /2.
B.W = (f
c1
+Nbaud /2) ( f
c0
- Nbaud /2 )= f
c1-
f
c0
+Nbaud
The bandwidth required for FSK transmission = the frequency shift+ baud
rate of the signal
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Example
Find the minimum bandwidth for an FSK signal
transmitting at 2000 bps. Transmission is in half-
duplex mode, and the carriers are separated by 3000
Hz.
Solution
For FSK
BW = baud rate + f
c1
- f
c0

BW = bit rate + fc1 - fc0 = 2000 + 3000 = 5000 Hz
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Example
Find the bit rates for an FSK signal if the bandwidth of
the medium is 12,000 Hz and the difference between the
two carriers is 2000 Hz. Transmission is in full-duplex
mode.
Solution
Because the transmission is full duplex, only 6000 Hz is
allocated for each direction.
BW = Baud rate + fc
1
- fc
0

Baud rate = BW - (fc
1
- fc
0
) = 6000 - 2000 = 4000
But because the baud rate is the same as the bit rate, the
bit rate is 4000 bps.

Derive the expression for the bandwidth of a
Frequency Shift Keying ( FSK ) signal And
hence determine the maximum bit rate of

VTU NOTES
Phase Shift Keying ( PSK/BPSK )
In PSK, the Amplitude & frequency of the carrier signal
remain constant and phase changes to represent the bit 1 or 0.The phase
of the signal during each bit duration is same. In the figure a phase of 0
0
represents bit 0 and a phase of 180
0
represents bit 1. Bandwidth & Baud
rate are same.

VTU NOTES
The 8-PSK characteristics
8-PSK has eight variations with a constant shift of
45
0
. Each shift represent 3 bits of data.
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Example
Given a bandwidth of 5000 Hz for an 8-PSK signal,
what are the baud rate and bit rate?
Solution
For PSK the baud rate is the same as the bandwidth.
There fore, baud rate is 5000.
In 8-PSK the bit rate is 3 times the baud rate.
So, the Bit rate = 5000 x 3 = 15,000 bps.

www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Example
A constellation diagram consists of 8 equally
spaced points on a circle. If the bit rate is 4800
bps, what is the baud rate?
Solution
The constellation indicates 8-PSK with the
points 45 degrees apart. Since 2
3
= 8, 3 bits
are transmitted with each signal unit.
Therefore,
the baud rate is = 4800 / 3 = 1600 baud
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
Example
Compute the bit rate for a 1000-baud 16-QAM signal.
Solution
A 16-QAM signal has 4 bits per signal unit.
Because, log
2
16 = 4.
Thus, (1000)(4) = 4000 bps
Example
Compute the baud rate for a 72,000-bps 64-QAM
signal.
Solution
A 64-QAM signal has 6 bits per signal unit.
Because, log 2
64
= 6.
Thus,
72000 / 6 = 12,000 baud

Telephone Modems
Modem Standards
Telephone lines can carry frequencies between 300
and 3300 Hz, giving a bandwidth of 3000 Hz. The
effective bandwidth of a telephone line being used
for data transmission is 2400 Hz, covering the
range 600 3000 Hz.
This bandwidth is called as base bandwidth. During
data transmission, any bandwidth is to be
modulated to base bandwidth. The device used for
the purpose is called MODEM.

VTU NOTES
Telephone line bandwidth
The signal Bandwidth must be smaller than the cable bandwidth.
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
We need to modulate the voice signal to use
data bandwidth. Devices used to do so are
called MODEMS
Modem stands for modulator/demodulator.
Modulator creates a band-pass analog signal
from binary data.
Demodulator recovers the binary data from the
modulated signal.

VTU NOTES
Categories of multiplexing
There are 3 types of Multiplexing.
1) Frequency Division Multiplexing ( FDM )
2) Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM)
3) Time Division Multiplexing ( TDM )
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
1) Frequency Division Multiplexing ( FDM)
In FDM, Signals generated by each sending device modulate
different carrier frequencies. These modulated signals are then
combined into a single composite signal that can be transported by
the link.
Guard Band is the strip of unused Bandwidth to prevent signals
from overlapping.
In the figure, the transmission path is divided into three channels.
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
FDM process
Each telephone generates a signal of similar frequency .
Inside the multiplexer, these similar signals are
modulated onto different carrier frequencies f1, f2, f3.
The resulting modulated signals are then combined in to
a single composite signal that is sent out over a media.
www.bookspar.com | Website for students |
VTU NOTES
FDM demultiplexing example
The demultiplexer uses a series of filters to
decompose the multiplexed signal into its constituent
component signals. The individual signals are then passed
to a demodulator that separates them from their carriers
and passes them to the receivers.

The FDM hierarchy
To maximize the efficiency, Telephone connections use hierarchy of
multiplexed signals from low-band width lines to high bandwidth lines. The
hierarchy is made up of Groups, Super groups, Master groups, and Jumbo
group.

VTU NOTES
McGraw-Hill The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2004
FDM was introduced in the year 1930s. The basic analog multiplexer
combines 12 voice channels in one line. Each voice signal occupies about
4 kHz. The channels are assigned with 4 kHz of bandwidth to provide guard
bands between channels. The multiplexer modulates each voice signal so that
it occupies a 4 kHz slot in the band between 60 & 108 kHz. The combined
signal is called a group. A collection of 5 groups is called Super group. A In a
super group 5 groups, each of bandwidth 48 kHz, into the frequency band
from 312 to 552 kHz.
10 super groups be multiplexed to master group of 600 voice signals. This
occupies a band 564 to 3084 kHz.
Examples of FDM
Broadcast radio- FM, AM, & television with 10 kHz, 200 kHz, & 6 MHz
Cellular Phones- A pool of frequency slots of 30 kHz each are shared by the

VTU NOTES
Wave Division Multiplexing
WDM is used in the transmission of OFC networks. OFC has high data rate
capacity.
Each telephone generate signals of similar frequency . Inside the
Wave division multiplexer, these signals are modulated onto
different narrow band carrier frequencies f1, f2 , f3. The
resulting modulated signals are then combined into a single
Optical signal of wider band of light and transported over OFC
channel.

VTU NOTES
Prisms in WDM multiplexing and demultiplexing
A prism has the property of Combining and splitting of light
sources. A prism bends a beam of light based on the angle of
incidence and frequency. Using this technique, a multiplexer can
be made to combine several input beams into one output beam of
a wider band of frequencies. A demultiplexer can also be made to
reverse the process.

VTU NOTES
McGraw-Hill The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2004
TDM is a digital multiplexing technique.
Each connection occupies a portion of time in the link.
If the source signal is an analog, it can be changed to
digital data and then multiplexed using TDM.
In synchronous TDM, the data flow of each input
connection is divided into units. Each unit occupies one
input time slot. Combination of units is called a frame.

VTU NOTES
TDM frames - For n- input connections, & T- input time,
each connection gets a time slot of T/n. During that time a
connection gets a chance of transmitting data for T/n of time,
called one unit. The link combines these units into a frame.

Four 1-Kbps connections are multiplexed together. A unit is 1 bit.
Find (i) the duration of 1 bit before multiplexing, (ii) the
transmission rate of the link, (iii) the duration of a time slot, and
(iv) the duration of a frame?
Solution
i) The duration of 1 bit = 1/ (1 Kbps) = 0.001 s = 1 ms
ii) The rate of the link= 4 times the rate of connection=
4 Kbps.
iii) The duration of each time slot= 1/4 the bit duration =

VTU NOTES
I nterleaving in TDM
TDM can be visualized as two fast rotating switches, one on the
multiplexing side and the other on the demultiplexing side. The switches are
synchronized and rotate at the same speed but in the opposite directions. On
the multiplexing side, as the switch opens in front of a connection, that
connection has the opportunity to send a unit onto the path. This process is
called interleaving. On the demultiplexing side, as the switch opens in front of
a connection, that connection has the opportunity to receive a unit from the
path.

VTU NOTES
McGraw-Hill The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2004
1) Each Frame carries 1 byte from each channel.
So, the size of each frame = 4 bytes = 32 bits.
2) Duration of a Frame = 1/ 100 bytes per sec = 0.01 S
3) Frame rate = 4 x100/4 = 100 frames.
4) Bit rate = Number of frames transmitted per sec = 100 frames = 100 x 32 = 3200 bps.

Four sources each create 250 characters per second. If the interleaved unit is
a character and one synchronization bit is added to each frame, find
i) the data rate of each source ii) Duration of each character in each source iii)
The frame rate iv) Duration of each frame v) Number of bits in each frame
vi) The data rate of the link.

VTU NOTES
Framing bits & Synchronization
If the multiplexer and demultiplexer are not synchronized, a bit
belongs to one channel may be received by the wrong channel. For this reason,
one or more synchronization bits are added to the beginning of each frame.
These bits are called framing bits. These framing bits follow a pattern
(Alternating 0 & 1) from frame to frame. This helps the demultiplexer to
synchronize with the incoming stream , & it can separate time slots accurately.

Example
We have four sources, each creating 250 characters
per second. If the interleaved unit is a character and
one synchronizing bit is added to each frame, find (1)
the data rate of each source, (2) the duration of each
character in each source, (3) the frame rate, (4) the
duration of each frame, (5) the number of bits in each
frame, and (6) the data rate of the link.

Solution (continued)
We can answer the questions as follows:

1. The data rate of each source is 2000 bps = 2
Kbps.
2. The duration of a character = 1/250 s = 4 ms.
3. The frame rate = 250 frames per second.
4. The duration of each frame = 1/250 s, or 4 ms.
5. No. of bits in each frame = 4 x 8 + 1 = 33 bits.
6. The data rate of the link = 250 x 33= 8250 bps.

BIT PADDING
Suppose device A could use one time slot, while the faster device
B could use two. Since the time slot is fixed, the different data
rate must be integer multiples of each other.
When the speeds are not integer multiples of each other, they can
be made to behave as if they were, by a technique called Padding.
For example, One device with a bit rate of 2.55 times that of the
other devices. By adding enough bits , make three times the other
devices. The extra bits are then discarded by the demultiplexer.
