N.B.: (1) Question No 1 is compulsory.

(2)AttemptanyFour questionsoutofremainingsixquestions.

(3) Figuresto the right indicatefull marks.

.(4)Assumesuitable data wheneverrequiredbut justify the same.


1. Attempt any four of the followings-

2. (a) Define noise figure. Derive the ftiiss formula for the calculation of the .totalnoise figure for two amplifierconnectedin cascade. (10)

(b) In an AM receiver having no RF stage, the loaded Q of the aerial coupling circuit is 125. If the intermediate ftequency is 465 KHz, Find-

(i) The image ftequency and its rejection at 1MHz and 30 MHz.

(ii) The IF required to make the image rejection ratio as good at 30 MHz as it is at 1MHz. ,.


3. (a) In anFMsystem,the audioftequencyis 1KHz and the audio Voltage is 2 Volts. The deviation is 4 KHz. If the AF voltage is now increased to 8 volts and its .ftequency dropped to 500 Hz, fmd the modulationindexin each case and approximatebandwidthof the signal.

(b) Prove the following properties of the Fourier Transform-

(i) Time shifting;

(ii) Convolution in time domain.

(c) What are the energy signals and power signals? Give the examples }n each case.Howdo you representit in (06)


4. (a) Sketchthe circuitof a practicaldiodedetectorand explain its working. What is Negative peak clipping? Calculate the :maximum modulation index that the above detector can tolerate without causing negativepeak clipping.

(b) An amplitude modulated waveform has a form-

Xc(t) = [ 10( 1+ 0.6 Cos 20001tt+ 0.4 Cos 40001tt)Cos 20,0001tt}];

(i) Sketchthe amplitudespectrumofXc(t).
