Name: Binary ASK Transmitter
ID: m18668
Language: English (en)
Summary: A binary ASK transmitter and receiver is designed to transmit digital information over a "speaker-air-microphone" (SAM) channel. Listening to the channel while making parameter adjustments and viewing plots builds additional insights into the ASK modulation scheme. This project describes the various tradeoffs affecting bandwidth and information rate and provides an application for the pulse shapping transmit filter.
