Delta Modulation and Demodulation Viva Questions

Delta Modulation & Demodulation:

  1. What is Delta Modulation?
  2. A message signal m(t) has a BW of 1KHz and exhibits a maximum rate of change of change of 2 Volts/sec the signal is sampled at a sampling frequency of 20 KHz and Quantized using a delta modulator the minimum step size to avoid slope overload is———-
  3. Which type of Quantization is used in DM?
  4. What are two types of quantization errors?
  5. What is granular noise?
  6. What is slope overload distortion?
  7. Draw the block diagram of Delta Modulation system.
  8. What are the advantages and disadvantages of DM system?
