# What is DSB-SC wave?

## What is DSB-SC wave?

Double-sideband suppressed-carrier transmission (DSB-SC) is transmission in which frequencies produced by amplitude modulation (AM) are symmetrically spaced above and below the carrier frequency and the carrier level is reduced to the lowest practical level, ideally being completely suppressed.

## What is the difference between SSB and DSB-SC wave?

It explains basics of DSBSC and SSBSC and mentions useful difference between terms. DSB-SC stands for Double SideBand Suppressed Carrier and SSB-SC stands for Single SideBand Suppressed Carrier. Both of these are modulation techiques used in AM(Amplitude Modulated) frequency spectrum.

Why is it called Dsbfc?

The transmission of a signal, which contains a carrier along with two sidebands can be termed as Double Sideband Full Carrier system or simply DSBFC.

### How can you obtain a DSB-SC signal?

A DSB-SC signal can be obtained by simply multiplying modulating signal x(t) with carrier signal cosωct . So we need to use a device called product modulator for the generation of DSB-SC waves . There are two forms of product modulators as under : Linear Modulator.

### What is DSB LC?

Double Sideband Modulation – Large Carrier • A DSB-LC modulated signal results if a carrier signal is added to a DSB-SC modulated signal.

Why is SSB preferred over DSB-FC or DSB-SC?

The advantages of SSB-SC over DSB-FC signal are : Less bandwidth requirements . This allow more number of signals to be transmitted in the same frequency range . Lots of power saving .

#### What is SSB and VSB?

Two modulation schemes that are derivatives of DSB modulation are single-sideband (SSB) and vestigial-sideband (VSB) modulation. SSB modulation is produced by filtering out all of one sideband of a DSB signal, while VSB is produced by leaving a vestige of one sideband and all of the other sideband of a DSB signal.

#### What is the primary advantage of DSBSC in AM?

It provides 100% modulation efficiency. Due to suppression of carrier, it consumes less power. It provides a larger bandwidth.

What is the bandwidth of SSB SC?

2fm.
Bandwidth of SSBSC Wave We know that the DSBSC modulated wave contains two sidebands and its bandwidth is 2fm. Since the SSBSC modulated wave contains only one sideband, its bandwidth is half of the bandwidth of DSBSC modulated wave.

## What is the maximum power saving in DSBSC?

DSB -SC: 1) It is a form of Amplitude modulation where only the sidebands are transmitted and the carrier is suppressed. 2) The advantage is 66% power saving compared to conventional AM. 3) The Bandwidth requirement is of 2fm, with fm being the maximum frequency component of the message signal.

## What is the power of DSBSC wave?

Power of DSBSC wave is equal to the sum of powers of upper sideband and lower sideband frequency components. First, let us find the powers of upper sideband and lower sideband one by one.

What is DSB-SC?

Definition : DSB-SC is an amplitude modulated wave transmission scheme in which only sidebands are transmitted and the carrier is not transmitted as it gets suppressed . DSB-SC is an acronym for D ouble S ideband S uppressed C arrier.

### What is double sideband suppressed carrier (DSBSC)?

Double Sideband Suppressed Carrier (DSBSC) is an amplitude modulation technique in which the modulated wave contains both the sidebands along with the suppressed carrier. Conventional AM consists of the two sidebands and a carrier where the major transmitted power is concentrated in the carrier which contains no information.

### What are the sidebands of DSB-SC waveform?

These two are the two sidebands that are placed at +ωc and -ωc. Let’s have a look at the pictorial representation of a waveform for DSB-SC system-
