The transmission of a fixed frequency that has been altered (modulated) to "carry" data. The frequency is measured in Hertz (cycles per second). See carrier, Hz, FDM and TDM.
The frequency of an unmodulated carrier wave.
A frequency capable of being modulated by an information-bearing signal of another frequency or frequencies.The carrier frequency is referred to as the center frequency in Frequency Modulation (FM), as the carrier frequency is used as a centerpoint, or reference point, with higher and lower frequency signals used to represent 1 bits and 0 bits. See also carrier and frequency.
superheterodyne circuit to reduce the mean carrier frequency of the selected FM station down to 10.7 MHz prior to demodulation.
FM radios use a superheterodyne circuit to reduce the mean carrier frequency of the selected FM station down to 10.7 MHz prior to demodulation.
Those who carried a single "beneficial" mutation in the MEFV gene were more likely to survive and reproduce, which may explain the high carrier frequency (up to one in five) in some populations.
