On the Similarity between Feedback/Loopback Amplitude and Frequency Modulation

Document Thumbnail

This paper extends previous work in loopback frequency modulation (FM) to a similar system in which an oscillator is looped back to modulate its own amplitude, so called feedback amplitude modulation (FBAM). A continuous-time closed-form solution is presented for each, yielding greatly improved numerical properties, reduced dependency on sampling rate, and a more accurate representation of the feedback by eliminating the unit-sample delay required for discrete-time implementation. Producing similar waveforms, it is shown that FBAM for a known input frequency, is actually a scaled and offset version of loopback FM having a different carrier frequency but same sounding frequency. Two distinct representations are used to show mathematical equivalence between systems while validating the closed-form solution for each.
