Synonymous with ASK (Amplitude Shift Keying).A signal modulation technique in which the amplitude of the analog carrier sine wave is modulated to represent one or more 1 bits or 0 bits. The transmitting computer outputs a baseband electrical signal, defining 1 bits and 0 bits as discrete voltage levels. Using a unibit (single-bit) AM technique as illustrated in Figure A-4, each 1 bit entering the transmitting modem is expressed as one or more relatively high-amplitude sine waves, and each 0 bit is expressed as one or more low-amplitude sine waves. The high and low levels are defined in terms of a reference level or by the relative difference between the levels. At 2400 baud, this unibit technique yields a transmission rate of 2400 bps, with one bit transmitted per baud, that is to say that the bit rate equals the baud rate. In a dibit coding scheme, it is possible to express 2 bits with a single baud by defining 4 levels of amplitude, so the bit rate is double the baud rate. A tribit coding scheme expresses 3 bits per baud by defining 8 levels of amplitude, and a quadrabit coding scheme expresses 4 bits by defining 16 levels of amplitude. Amplitude modulation often is used in conjunction with frequency modulation (FM) and phase-shift keying (PSK) in electrically based networks. Digital fiber optics transmission systems (FOTS) use amplitude modulation. See also AM, amplitude, analog, baseband, baud, baud rate, bit, bit rate, carrier, digital, FOTS, modem, PSK, and sine wave.

Origin of am

  • Middle English from Old English eom es- in Indo-European roots

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Middle English am, em, from Old English eam, eom (“am”), from Proto-Germanic *immi, *izmi (“am”), from Proto-Indo-European *h₁ésmi (“I am, I exist”), a form of the verb *wesaną. Cognate with Old Norse em, emi (“am”), Gothic (im, “am”), Ancient Greek εἰμί (eimi), Albanian jam (“I am”), Sanskrit अस्मि (ásmi).

    From Wiktionary

  • A representation of the pronunciation of ham by a speaker whose dialect lacks the voiceless glottal fricative or transition (IPA: [h]).
