AM and FM Modulation of ASCII Input
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
Continuous sinusoidal oscillations can be used to transmit discrete data such as ASCII-encoded characters. Click the characters to build a message or "reset" to clear it. The binary ASCII code is displayed for each character, as well as an example of a modulated signal containing the entire message. Toggle between AM and FM modulation: AM uses high amplitudes (1.5) for ones and low amplitudes (0.5) for zeros; FM uses high frequencies for ones and low frequencies for zeros. You can also change the carrier frequency.
