The analog signal can be converted to a discrete time signal by a process
called sampling. The sampling theorem for a band limited signal of finite
energy can be stated as,
A band limited signal of finite energy, which has no frequency component
higher than W Hz is completely described by specifying the values of the
signal at instants of time separated by 1/2W seconds.
It can be recovered from knowledge of samples taken at the rate of 2W per

Inferences:
For the case fs=2f
m
, although the successive cycles of spectrum are
not overlapping they are touching each other. In this case the original
spectrum can be recovered from the sampled spectrum using a low pass filter
with cut off frequency f
m

For the case f
s
<2f
m
, the successive cycles of the sampled spectrum will
overlap each other and hence in this case the original spectrum cannot be
extracted out of the spectrum Hence for reconstruction without distortion it is
necessary that
f
s
>=2f
m

Questions:

1. What is aliasing effect?
A. The original analog waveform can be recovered from the PAM type
samples simply by low pass filtering them If fs <f
nyquist
(2f
m
) then overlapping
of adjacent spectrum replicates occurs. This is know as aliasing .Due to
under- sampling (for f
s
<2f
m
) exact analog waveform can not be recovered,
2. What is the function of Op-amps in this circuit and what is the effect of
frequency of sampling signal?
A. Op-amps acts as voltage followers, if the f
s
<2f
m ,
then distorted waveform is
observed, so to recover the exact signal the sampling signal frequency
should be maintained greater than or equal to the 2f
m.

message m (t).
A PAM waveform consists of a sequence of flat-topped pulses.
The amplitude of each pulse corresponds to the value of the message signal x (t)
at the leading edge of the pulse.
The pulse amplitude modulation is the process in which the amplitudes of
regularity
spaced rectangular pulses vary with the instantaneous sample values of a
continuous message signal in a one-one fashion.

Pulse Time Modulation is also known as Pulse Width Modulation or Pulse Length
Modulation. In PWM, the samples of the message signal are used to vary the
duration of the individual pulses. Width may be varied by varying the time of
occurrence of leading edge, the trailing edge or both edges of the pulse in
accordance with modulating wave. It is also called Pulse Duration Modulation.

Theory:
In Pulse Position Modulation, both the pulse amplitude and pulse duration are
held constant but the position of the pulse is varied in proportional to the
sampled values of the message signal. Pulse time modulation is a class of
signaling techniques that encodes the sample values of an analog signal on to
the time axis of a digital signal and it is analogous to angle modulation
techniques. The two main types of PTM are PWM and PPM. In PPM the
analog sample value determines the position of a narrow pulse relative to the
clocking time. In PPM rise time of pulse decides the channel bandwidth. It has
low noise interference.

5. TIME DIVISION MULTIPLEXING AND
DEMULTIPLEXING

Aim:
1. To study the 4 channel analog multiplexing and de multiplexing
2. To study the effect of sampling frequency on output signal
characteristics.
3. To study the effect of input signal amplitude on the output signal
characteristics.
Apparatus required:
1. Time Division Multiplexing and de multiplexing trainer Kit.
2. Dual Trace oscilloscope

Theory:
In PAM, PPM the pulse is present for a short duration and for most of the time
between the two pulses no signal is present. This free space between the pulses
can be occupied by pulses from other channels. This is known as Time Division
Multiplexing. Thus, time division multiplexing makes maximum utilization of the
transmission channel. Each channel to be transmitted is passed through the low
pass filter. The outputs of the low pass filters are connected to the rotating
sampling switch (or) commutator. It takes the sample from each channel per
revolution and rotates at the rate of f
s
. Thus the sampling frequency becomes f
s

the single signal composed due to multiplexing of input channels. These
channels signals are then passed through low pass reconstruction filters. If the
highest signal frequency present in all the channels is f
m
, then by sampling
theorem, the sampling frequency f
s
must be such that f

6. PULSE CODE MODULATION AND
DE MODULATION

Aim:
To obtain the pulse code modulation and de modulation signals.

Apparatus required:
1. PCM trainer kit
2. Dual Trace Oscilloscope.

Theory:
Pulse Code Modulation is known as digital pulse modulation technique. In fact,
the pulse code modulation technique that the message signal is subjected to a
great number of operations. It consists of 3 main parts i.e., transmitter,
transmission path and receiver. The essential operations in the transmitter of a
PCM system are sampling, quantizing and encoding. Sampling is the operation in
which an analog signal is sampled according to the sampling theorem resulting in
a discrete time signal. The quantizing and encoding operations are usually
performed in the same circuit which is known as an ADC. Also, the essential
operations in the receiver are regeneration of impaired signals, decoding and
demodulation of the train of quantized samples. These operations are usually
performed in the same circuit which is known as digital to analog converter.
Further at intermediate points along the transmission route from the transmitter to
the receiver, regenerative repeaters are used to reconstruct the transmitted
sequence of coded pulses in order to combat the accumulated effects of signal
distortion and noise. The quantization refers to the use of a finite set of amplitude
levels and the selection of a level nearest to a particular sample value of the
message signal as the representation the system at transmission in which
sampled and quantized values of an analog signal are transmitted via a
sequence of code words is called Pulse Code Modulation. Two most commonly
used versions are the differential pulse code modulation and delta modulation.
The PCM communication system is shown in Fig1. In the circuit is often called an
analog to digital converter. The functional block that performs the task of
accepting binary digits and generating appropriate sequences of levels is called a
digital to analog converter. The bandwidth of PCM will be much greater than that
of the message. PCM is used to convert analog signals to binary form. Low pass

filter may be used to reduce the quantization noise and it yields the original
message signal.

Inference:

7. DIFFERENTIAL PULSE CODE MODULATION AND

Aim:
To study the differential PCM & demodulation by sending variable
frequency sine wave & variable DC signal input.
Apparatus required:
1. AF oscillator
2. DPCM modulator
3. DPCM demodulator
4. Connecting wires
5. CRO - 30MHz
6. Variable DC Source 1
Theory:
In this DPCM instead of transmitting a base band signal m(t) we send the
difference signal of K
th
sample and (k-1)
th
sample value. The advantage here is
fewer levels are required to quantize the difference than the required to quantize
m(t) and correspondingly, fewer bits will be needed to encode the levels. If we
know the post behaviour of a signal up to a certain time, it is possible to make
some interference about its future values this is called prediction. The filter
designed to perform the prediction is called a predictor. The difference between
the interest and the predictor o/p is called the prediction error.

8. DELTA MODULATION
Aim:
To obtain the delta modulation and demodulation signals.
Apparatus required:
1. Delta Modulation & Demodulation Kit
2. Cathode Ray Oscilloscope 0-30MHz
Theory:
Delta modulation uses a single bit PCM code to achieve digital transmission of
analog signals with conventional PCM each code is binary representation of both
the sign and magnitude of a particular sample. With delta modulation, rather than
transmit a coded representation of the sample, only a single bit is transmitted,
which indicates whether that sample is larger or smaller than the previous
sample. The algorithm for a delta modulation system is quite simple. If the
current sample is smaller than the previous sample, a logic 0 is transmitted. If the
current sample is larger than the previous sample, a logic 1 is transmitted. The
input analog is sampled and converted to a PAM signal, which is compared to
the output of the DAC. The output of the DAC is a voltage equal to the
regenerated magnitude of the previous sample, which was stored in the up/down
counter as a binary number, The up/down counter is incremented or
decremented depending on whether the previous sample is larger or smaller than
the current sample. The up/down counter is clocked at a rate equal to the sample
rate. Therefore, the up/down counter is updated after each comparison.

maximum slope of the signal this step size becomes small to follow the
steep of the input waveform. This condition is called slope - overload and
the resulting quantizing error is called slope overload noise.

2. What is granular noise?
A. Granular noise corresponds to the error due to quantization in the 1 bit
coding process.

3. Write the advantage of DM over PCM?
A. Dm transmits only one bit for one sample, thus the signaling rate and
channel bandwidth is very small, where as in PCM 4,8,or 6 bits are used per
sample.

4. What is the effect of the Low Pass Filter cut off frequency on output of
demodulator?
A. If the modulating signal frequency is higher than the low pass filter cut off
frequency the signal will be attenuated.

Theory:
FSK signaling schemes find a wide range of applications in low-speed digital
data transmission system. FSK schemes are not as efficient as PSK interms of
power and bandwidth utilization. In binary FSK signaling the waveforms are used
to convey binary digits 0 and 1 respectively. The binary FSK waveform is a
continuous, phase constant envelope FM waveform. The FSK signal bandwidth
in this case is of order of 2MHz, which is same as the order of the bandwidth of
PSK signal.

Theory:

The binary ASK system was one of the earliest form of digital modulation used in
wireless telegraphy. In an binary ASK system binary symbol 1 is represented by
transmitting a sinusoidal carrier wave of fixed amplitude A
c
and fixed frequency f
c

for the bit duration T
b
where as binary symbol 0 is represented by switching of the
carrier for T
b
seconds. This signal can be generated simply by turning the carrier
of a sinusoidal oscillator ON and OFF for the prescribed periods indicated by the
modulating pulse train. For this reason the scheme is also known as on-off shift
testing. Let the sinusoidal carrier can be represented by Ec (t) =A
c
cos (2f
c
t)
then the binary ASK signal can be represented by a wave s(t) given by S(t) =
A
c
cos(2f
c
t), symbol 1 ASK signal can be generated by applying the incoming
binary data and the sinusoidal carrier to the two inputs of a product modulator.
The resulting output is the ASK wave. The ASK signal which is basically product
of the binary sequence and carrier signal has a same as that of base band signal
but shifted in the frequency domain by f
c
. The band width of ASK signal is
infinite but practically it is 3/T
