In the fields of communications, signal processing,
and in electrical engineering more generally, a
signal

is any time
-
varying or spatial
-
varying quantity.

"A signal is a function of
independent
variables that
carry some information

on time

function r(t)


A
System

is any physical set of components that
takes a
signal
and
transforms it into another
signal.





A system can be a simple one that turns a light
ON/OFF. Or can be a complex one that does all
the computation in a microprocessor.

Input signal x(t)

Output signal y(t)


An
electronic amplifier

is a device for increasing the
power of a signal
.






It
does this by taking energy from a power supply
and controlling the output to match the input signal
shape but with a larger amplitude.


There are various types of amplifier.

Amplifier


A time shifter system shifts the function f(t) forward
or backward by a specific time.







The above system is a forward time shifter. It adds a
delay (t
0)

to the signal.

sampling

is the reduction of a
continuous

time
signal to a

-
time signal







The sampling frequency must be higher than the
frequency of the signal to be sampled. (minimum
twice as high)

is a
device that converts a continuous quantity to a

In signal processing, sampling is
the reduction of a continuous
signal to a discrete
signal.


Sampling frequency defines the

modulation,

http
://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amplitude_modulation


An Amplitude modulator takes a low frequency
message signal and a high frequency carrier
signal and combines it into a modulated signal of
varying amplitude.

Amplitude
Modulator


An
Amplitude demodulator
takes a modulated
signal as input and gives output the original
message signal.






The above system is an amplitude demodulator.
Its also called
‘envelope detector’.
It takes the
envelope of the modulated signal to get the
information signal.
