Digital Upconversion and Downconversion

Abstract

Digital upconversion is the process of moving the frequency content of a baseband signal to a much high frequency. Digital downconversion is the opposite process. The process is described intuitively as well as mathematically using previously developed concepts. In addition, the role of analog-to-digital convertor and digital-to-analog convertor in this process is discussed.
