41 Threads found on edaboard.com: Fm Using Vco
I want to implement a simple communication system with digital FM using vco, but Igot confused about using vco for modulation in matlab!
Also, after modulation there are limiter and discriminator blocks, is it necessary to use demodulation matlab function in this system?
Finally, for this simple system, can I use (...)

vco : voltage controlled oscillator
is a kind of oscillator, that is enable to change its frequency
due to some external voltage applied across it.
A probably most important component is a varactor diode.
You can refer a book about varactor diode. If you apply
a varying voltage across it, the capacitance of the diode
will change in it r

Hey u cannot do frequency modulation with pll.. U can only demodulate fm with plll... So better try using vco or any other method to modulate and use pll to demodulate..
Sure you can if you pick your loop BW right

You are going to have a hard time making a PLL without using a PLL "chip"!
If you could use a PLL chip, you would choose one with an onboard charge pump. Then you could set up a passive loop filter with a narrow loop bandwidth (perhaps 2 KHz bandwidth) and connect that to the vco tuning port. Then you could also AC couple a modulating signal o

The loop will try to remove the FM. Therefore the loop bandwidth should be lower than the lowest modulating frequency. Add your audio signal to the vco frequency control pin.

FSK ... FM ... same principle.
An F to V converter would work fine.
Another method is to lock onto the modulated signal with a PLL. The loop control voltage becomes your demodulated signal.

The maximum frequency of the 74ls124 vco is about 30MHz. So if you need a transmitter in the FM broadcast band, you need a bandpass filter tuned to a vco harmonic.
As an RC oscillator, 74ls124 is not very stable and may be very noisy to use as an FM modulator. The control and power voltage should be very well filtered, else the power supply noise

I am afraid that you cannot FM modulate the internal vco. Seems that is no access to the resonant circuit.
You can try using an external vco, the chip allowing for this option.

With the add of Frequency Locked Loop (FLL) to the standard PLL loop catch faster the nominal frequency. One, the most important fact is that while FLL has dominante role in combined loop the phase noise of vco is much lower.

What frequency are we talking about here?
The simplest way to get FSK modulated carrier frequency is to FM modulate the vco (LC oscillator with varactor diode) with a (digital) squarewave signal. But this design will probably need PLL control for frequency stability, so its complicated for unexperienced designer.

When using an IDEAL vco in VerilogA to generate a frequency modulated signal, then the instantaneous frequency of that signal is proportional to the modulating input signal. When using VerilogA to measure the period of the FM signal and thus finding the frequency I can sample these values and export them to Matlab to do an FFT. (...)

You can not double (using a frequency multiplier) the DVB-T signal because uses QPSK, 16QAM or 64QAM modulations, which are not constant envelope.
Only signals using constant envelope modulations as FM, GMSK, GFSK, etc. could be doubled, without distorting the data.

For FM demodulation: If modulation index is low (max. phase deviation less than 1 radian), you could use a narrow-band PLL as a phase demodulator. The output is the ouput of the phase detector, that after derivation gives the frequency.
This can work for low-index FM but not for FSK.
Why do you need a method other than take the control voltage o

AM receivers operate at a low frequency (<30 MHz) where frequency stability is not an issue. Therefore there are no AFC circuits used to pull the receiver to a selected AM signal.
In FM receivers that operate at >80 MHz, oscillators are unstable. Therefore AFC circuit was invented to pull receiver oscillator to the FM spectrum center, to optimize t

You can make an FLL, but you will always get some frequency difference because of offset issues. In a PLL you may get a steady phase offset, but there will be zero frequency offset.
The "modern" phase comparators function as frequency comparators when out of phase lock and behave as phase comparators when phase synchronized. This saves you fr
