Homework Help: PAM signal with a cosine input

  1. May 10, 2012 #1
    sketch the spectrum of the PAM signal S(f) if the input is m(t)=cos(2*pi*fm*t) where fm=3000 at a sampling rate of 10000 using rectangular pulses of duration 0.04ms. in the range +-15Khz


    taking the fourier transform of the rectangular pulse we obtain: H(f)=Tsinc(Tf) where T=0.04ms

    and M'(f)= ∫(m(t)*p(t))exp(-i2∏ft)

    but p(t) is periodic and so we can use fourier transform to obtain: fsƩexp(i2∏fskt)

    fourier transform of M(f) from m(t) is: M(f)=∫(m(t))exp(-i2∏ft)=0.5[δ(f-fm)+δ(f+fm)]

    so all together S(f)=M'(f)H(f)=fsT0.5sinc(fT)Ʃ[δ(f-fm-kfs)+δ(f+fm-kfs)]

    subbing values in to get: 0.2sinc(0.04e-3f)Ʃ[δ(f-3000-10000k)+δ(f+3000-10000k)]

    but how do i plot the frequency spectrum i know that delta functions have infinite amplitude and i am not sure how show the magnitude and frequency components between +-15Khz any help please?
