Modulation

Modulation is a term used in electronics and telecommunications to describe the application of data to radio waves. This process happens when someone applies an input signal to a carrier wave, which changes the characteristics of that signal. These characteristics might include frequency, amplitude, or phase. Modulation can also happen by converting a digital signal into an analog format.
