o V = peak carrier amplitude

c = carrier radian frequency, (2fc), radians per

With angle modulation, it is necessary that (t)


be prescribed function of the modulated signal.

m = angular velocity of the modulating signal,


(2fm radians per second)

fm = modulating signal frequency (Hz)

Vm = peak amplitude of the modulating signal (V)

The difference between FM and PM lies in which


property of the carrier (the frequency or the
phase) is varied directly with the modulating
signal and which property is varied indirectly.

Note that when the frequency of the carrier is


varied the phase is also varied and vise versa.

If the frequency of the carrier is varied directly in


accordance with the modulating signal, FM
occurs.
If the phase of the carrier is varied directly in
accordance with the modulating signal, PM
occurs.FM - varying the frequency of a constant
Direct
amplitude carrier directly proportional to the
amplitude of the modulating signal at a rate
equal to the frequency of the modulating signal
Direct PM varying the phase of a constantamplitude carrier directly proportional to the
amplitude of the modulating signal at a rate
equal to the frequency of the modulating signal

The magnitude and direction of the frequency


shift (f) is proportional to the amplitude of the
modulating signal.
The rate at which the frequency changes are
occurring is equal to the frequency of the
modulating signal (fm).
(f) is called the frequency deviation.
frequency deviation - amount of change in carrier
frequency produced by the modulating signal

o
o

frequency deviation is the change in frequency


that occurs in the carrier when it is acted on by a
modulating signal frequency
frequency deviation is typically given as a peak
frequency shift in hertz
the peak-to-peak frequency deviation is called as
the carrier swing (2f)

In FM, both the modulation index and the frequency


deviation are directly proportional to the amplitude of
the modulating signal, and the modulation index is
inversely proportional to its frequency.

In PM, both the modulation index and phase deviation


are directly proportional to the amplitude of the
modulating signal and unaffected by its frequency.

Examples:
1.Determine the peak frequency deviation and the

deviation sensitivity of 5kHz/V and a modulating
signal Vm(t) = 2cos(2 2000t).
2.Determine the peak phase deviation for a PM
modulator with a deviation sensitivity of 2.5 rad/V
and a modulating signal Vm(t) = 2cos(2 2000t)
3.A phase modulator has a kp = 2rad/V. What RMS
voltage of a sine wave would cause a peak
deviation of 60?

With angle modulation, the frequency components of


the modulated wave are much more complexly related
to the frequency components of the modulating signal
than AM.
In angle modulation, a single-frequency modulating
signal produces an infinite number of pairs of side
frequencies and, thus have a infinite bandwidth.
These sidebands are separated from the carrier by
multiples of fm but their amplitudes tends to decrease
as their distance from the carrier frequency increases.
However most of the side frequencies are negligibly in
amplitude and can be ignore

noise

The addition of noise to a received signal causes


change in its amplitude. Since the amplitude changes
in the AM contain the intelligence, any attempt to get
rid of the noise adversely affect the received signal.

In FM the intelligence is not carrier by the amplitude


changes but instead by frequency change. So changes
in the amplitude of the received signal does not affect
the information.
