 Amplitude modulation (AM) is a modulation technique used in electronic communication,​ most commonly for transmitting information via a radio carrier wave. In amplitude modulation, the amplitude (signal strength) of the carrier wave is varied in proportion to the waveform being transmitted. That waveform may, for instance, correspond to the sounds to be reproduced by a loudspeaker,​ or the light intensity of television pixels. ​ Amplitude modulation (AM) is a modulation technique used in electronic communication,​ most commonly for transmitting information via a radio carrier wave.

 To test this circuit first use the same modulated signal you used in the simple diode envelope detector example. Compare the new design to the simple diode envelope detector. Using the same steps as earlier generate AM signals with smaller amplitudes / higher modulation indexes and compare the outputs of these two detector designs. To test this circuit first use the same modulated signal you used in the simple diode envelope detector example.
