What is the balanced modulator?
Simply so, what is a balanced modulator an example of?
A balanced modulator mixes the audio signal and the radio frequency carrier, but suppresses the carrier, leaving only the sidebands. The output from the balanced modulator is a double sideband suppressed carrier signal and it contains all the information that the AM signal has, but without the carrier.
Also, what are the applications of balanced modulator? Typical applications include suppressed carrier and amplitude modulation, synchronous detection, FM detection, phase detection, and chopper applications.
Keeping this in view, what is the difference between a balanced modulator and a regular modulator?
In a balanced modulator, there is 180º phase shift between the upper and lower sidebands. c. In a balanced modulator, only one sideband is produced. In a balanced modulator, harmonics of the sidebands are suppressed.
What is product modulator?
kt ‚mäj·?‚lād·?r] (electronics) Modulator whose modulated output is substantially equal to the carrier and the modulating wave; the term implies a device in which intermodulation between components of the modulating wave does not occur.
