RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Post subject: BPSK MODULATOR DESIGN Posted: Fri Oct 07, 2005 9:46 pm
Hi friends,

I want to design BPSK modulator for my communication system.I am very new to this stuff.I want to modulate 2 signals like one is information signal 1 khz freq while other is PN code 1 MHz freq ,and i want to modulate this signal using BPSK technique,but i dont have any idea about how to implement BPSK in hardware.

Could you please let me know that how can i achive this BPSK modualtion using hardware?could you please send me some basic idea, circuit or somthing which can help me to move ahead ?

Step number 1.

Buy a 1k ohm resistor.

Let me know when you've done that and I'll tell you the next step.

You need either a double-balanced mixer (see or its digital equivalent, the exclusive-OR gate. Exor your 1kbps data with your 1 Mbps PN stream, then go to your modulator (dbm or exor) at whatever frequency you need..

Good Luck!

Use double balanced mixer (DBM) with DC - Fmax response. Also find out more about DC offset.

Did you ever try using a MAXIM device such as the MAX2900? They have an evaluation board available.

It's better then a 1K resistor.
