Signals and Modulation
 Continuous-time and
Discrete-time signals t
 Modulation : Carrier
Amplitude and/or
What Is Orthogonal Frequency Division
Multiplexing (OFDM)?
 Multi-carrier Amplitude modulation
– Each Carrier’s amplitude is modulated
 Well-suited for Wireless Communication

How OFDM works?
 Parallel Data Streams
 Data Encoding is based on
Amplitude Modulation
 Multiple Carriers are combined
through the Fourier Series
– Computed by Inverse Fast
Fourier transform
4-QAM modulation
