Homework Help: AM and DSBSC waveform comparison ?

  1. May 17, 2012 #1
    Hello, I am wondering what sort of visual differences you would see between an AM modulated waveform with carrier and a DSBSC waveform (suppressed carrier) in the time domain on an oscilloscope.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi fran1942! In DSBSC the RF signal peaks when the modulating signal both peaks and dips. www.egr.uh.edu/courses/ece/ece4371/ece4117_files/A1_manual_pp33_46.pdf [Broken]
