How to Generate QAM Signaling with the HDAWG Arbitrary Waveform Generator

on 25.11.2019 at 12:24 by Mehdi on Blog of Mehdi Alem
Introduction  Digital modulation is extensively used in telecommunications, radar systems and quantum technologies. Corresponding to every analog modulation technique, i.e. amplitude modulation (AM), phase modulation (PM) and frequency modulation (FM), there is a digital version of signal modulation: amplitude-shift keying […]
