ASK means Amplitude Shift Keying (also known as ON-OFF keying). It’s one of the Modulation Scheme used to transmit Digital Data using High Frequency carrier signal. It’s very simple and popular method. It transmits 1’s and 0’s of Digital Data by transmitting carrier or no carrier like
· Bit 1 (logic high) is Transmitted with carrier frequency Fc
· Bit 0 (logic low) is Transmitted with no carrier
Means series of bits – bit stream is transmitted as carrier ON and carrier OFF. That’s why it is also known as ON-OFF keying.
