The number of times per second a continuous wave completes
one cycle

Amplitude
The difference of the extremes from the midpoint in a cycle

Telecommunications & Networks :Page 7/54


Basic Modulation Techniques
Amplitude modulation (AM)
Converts digital data to analog signals using a single frequency
carrier signal
High-amplitude wave denotes a binary 1
Low-amplitude wave denotes a binary 0

Telecommunications & Networks :Page 8/54


Basic Modulation Techniques
Frequency modulation (FM)
Uses a constant amplitude carrier signal and two frequencies to
distinguish between 1 and 0

Phase modulation
Uses a phase shift at transition points in the carrier frequency to
represent 1 or 0
