digital frequency modulation

Definition

Electronics

  • A form of frequency modulation in which the modulating wave shifts the output frequency between fixed values. switching between these values provides the keying. May be used, for instance, by modems transmitting over telephone lines, by representing the 0 with a lower frequency, and a 1 with a higher frequency. Also called frequency shift keying, or frequency-shift modulation.
