# MATLAB Code to Simulate / Generate the Amplitide Modulation Signal (AM Signal) [ Amplitude Modulation using MATLAB]

Amplitude modulation (AM) is a method of superimposing the message onto an alternating carrier waveform.The highest frequency of the modulating signal (Message Signal) is normally < 10 % of the carrier frequency. The instantaneous amplitude of the modulated wave varies as per the amplitude of the message signal.

MATLAB Code For Amplitude Modulation:

clc;
clear all;
close all;

Ac=2;
%carrier amplitude
fc=0.5; %carrier frequency
Am=.5; %message signal amplitude
fm=.05; %message signal frequency
Fs=100; %sampling rate/frequency

ka=1;
%Amplitude Sensitivity

t=[0:0.1:50];
%defining the time range & disseminating it into samples
ct=Ac*cos(2*pi*fc*t); %defining the carrier signal wave
mt=Am*cos(2*pi*fm*t); %defining the message signal
AM=ct.*(1+ka*mt); %Amplitude Modulated wave, according to the standard definition

subplot(3,1,1);
%plotting the message signal wave
plot(mt);
ylabel('Message signal');

subplot(3,1,2);
%plotting the carrier signal wave
plot(ct);
ylabel('carrier');

subplot(3,1,3);
%plotting the amplitude modulated wave
plot(AM);
ylabel('AM signal');
