Frequency Shift Keying uses the bit to affect the frequency of a carrier sinusoid.

In frequency-shift keying (FSK), the bit affects the frequency of a carrier sinusoid.

s 0 t A p T t 2 f 0 t
s 1 t A p T t 2 f 1 t

The frequencies f 0 , f 1 are usually harmonically related to the bit interval. In the depicted example, f 0 3 T and f 1 4 T . As can be seen from the transmitted signal for our example bit stream ( [link] ), the transitions at bit interval boundaries are smoother than thoseof BPSK .

This plot shows the FSK waveform for same bitstream used in the BPSK example .

To determine the bandwidth required by this signal set, we again consider the alternating bit stream. Think of it as two signalsadded together: The first comprised of the signal s 0 t , the zero signal, s 0 t , zero, etc. , and the second having the same structure but interleaved with the first and containing s 1 t ( [link] ).

The depicted decomposition of the FSK-modulated alternating bit stream into its frequency components simplifies thecalculation of its bandwidth.

Each component can be thought of as a fixed-frequency sinusoid multiplied by a square wave of period 2 T that alternates between one and zero. This baseband square wave has the same Fourier spectrum as our BPSK example, but with theaddition of the constant term c 0 . This quantity's presence changes the number of Fourier series terms required for the 90% bandwidth: Now we needonly include the zero and first harmonics to achieve it. The bandwidth thus equals, with f 0 f 1 , f 1 1 2 T f 0 1 2 T f 1 f 0 1 T . If the two frequencies are harmonics of the bit-interval duration, f 0 k 0 T and f 1 k 1 T with k 1 k 0 , the bandwidth equals k 1 k 0 1 T . If the difference between harmonic numbers is 1 , then the FSK bandwidth is smaller than the BPSK bandwidth. If the difference is 2 , the bandwidths are equal and larger differences produce a transmission bandwidthlarger than that resulting from using a BPSK signal set.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
