Single Side Band (SSB) Modulation using MATLAB
  • Last Updated : 20 Aug, 2020

Single sideband (SSB) modulation might is a sort of modulation used to send data, which includes an audio signal. Amplitude modulation produces an output signal in which the bandwidth of it is two times the most frequency of the original baseband signal. SSB modulation neglects this bandwidth increase, and also the power wasted on a carrier, at the price of more device complexity and tougher tuning at the receiver side.

The Expression for Single Side Band with Upper Side Band :
 s_{b} = m  \cos (2  \pi f_{c}t) - m_{h}\sin(2  \pi f_{c}t)
m is the cosine wave with time duration of ‘t’,
fc is the carrier frequency,
t is the time duration and
mh s the Hilbert transform of baseband.

The MATLAB code is:

% carrier frequency
fc = 200;
% baseband frequency
fm = 30;
% sampling frequency
fs= 4000;
% time duration
t = (0 : 1 / fs :1 );
t = linspace(0, 1, 1000);
% cosine wave with time duration of 't'
m = cos(2 * pi * fm * t); 
% Hilbert transform of baseband
mh = imag(hilbert(m)); 
% Single Side Band with Upper Side Band 
sb = m .* cos(2 * pi * fc * t) - mh .* sin(2 * pi * fc * t); 
% displaying the modulation
plot(t, sb);
