Case Study 4 focuses on RF communications. A communications block is developed which transmits digitally encoded data using frequency modulation (FM) techniques, and then recovers the data at a remote location. The key component in this communication system is the receiver’s detector. In this case study, we use SystemVision with VHDL-AMS to consider two common detector architectures.
