Amplitude Modulation MCQs with Answers

Amplitude Modulation MCQs

Amplitude modulation (AM) is a modulation process in which the amplitude of a high-frequency sine wave (called a radio frequency) is overlapped with the modulating signal m(t). The modulating signal contains the information like audio data, as in AM radio broadcasting, or two-way radio communications. The high-frequency sinusoidal waveform (i.e., carrier) is modulated by combining it with the message signal using a mixer. A carrier signal is modulated only in amplitude value. The modulating signal is the envelope of the carrier. The required bandwidth for amplitude modulation is two times that of signal to be modulated.

Following are some important advantages and disadvantages of Amplitude modulation:-

Advantages

  • It is simple to implement
  • It can be demodulated using a circuit consisting of very few components
  • AM receivers are cheap

Disadvantages

  • It is not efficient with respect to power usage
  • It is not efficient in bandwidth; requires a bandwidth equal to twice the highest audio frequency
