Experiment No.1: To generate AM wave without using matlab inbuilt function.

1. Objective: To generate AM wave.

MATLAB is a software package for high performance numerical computation and visualization. It provides an interactive environment with hundred of built in function for technical computation, graphics, and animation. Best of all, it also provide easy extensibility with its own high level programming language. The name MATLAB stands for MATrix LABoratory.

3. Program:

clear all

T=1/100;

fm=0.25;

fc=10;

mt=sin(2*pi*fm*[0:T:10]);

subplot(3,1,1);

plot(mt)

ct=sin(2*pi*fc*[0:T:10]);

subplot(3,1,2);

plot(ct)

yt=mt.*ct;

subplot(3,1,3);

plot(yt)

4. Program Output

5. Questions

a) What do you mean by ‘.*’ in above program.

b) Explain following MATLAB command plot and sub plot.

c) List out the advantage of AM systems.

d) Why modulation is required in communicatioin system.

6. Discussion and Conclusion

Experiment No.2: To generate AM wave and plot it’s frequency spectrum using matlab.
