### Ring Modulator - Construction and Working (Generation of DSB SC using Ring Modulator) - AM Generation

Here we will understand what is a Ring Modulator along with Where and Why the Ring Modulator is used? The structure and working of the ring modulator has been explained here with the help of beautiful circuit simulation software (Falstad Circuit Simulator).

## What is Ring Modulator (Ring Modulation)

A Ring modulator is an electronic device that is used for ring modulation.

Ring modulation is the implementation of frequency mixing. It is performed by multiplying two signals. One signal is a simple waveform (typically a sine wave) and another signal is the signal that we want to modulate.

Ring modulator can be used to generate double sideband suppressed carrier (DSB SC) wave. DSB SC is a type of amplitude modulation where in the modulated wave contains only two side bands and the carrier wave is suppressed.

## Why it is called Ring Modulator

The ring modulator circuit  implements diodes in clockwise or anticlockwise arrangement. Hence it takes the shape of a ring. That's why it is called as the ring modulator.

## Ring Modulator Applications

A ring modulator finds applications in music synthesizer or as an effects unit.
The ring modulator heterodynes (frequency mix) two waveforms. The output is the sum and difference of the frequencies that are present in each waveform.
