FDM and TDM are the two types of multiplexing technique that allows simultaneous transmission of multiple signals over only one channel. As against in TDM, the various signal gets transmitted in multiple time slots. We all know that multiplexing is a technique of transmission of multiple signals over a common channel. But transmitting multiple signals over a common channel is quite difficult. However, multiplexing makes this possible.

Adama University School of Engineering and Information Technologies Department of Electrical Engineering EEng Introduction to Communication systems Chapter 5- Multiplexing Multiplexing is the process of simultaneously transmitting two or more individual signals over a single communication channel.
Multiplexing has the effect of increasing the number of communications channels in which more information can be transmitted. There are many instances in communications where it is necessary or desirable to transmit more than one voice or data signal.
The application itself may require multiple signals, and money can be saved by using a single communication channel to send multiple information signals. Telephone and satellite systems use multiplexing to make the system practical and less expensive.
Of course, TDM are also found in many analog systems. The primary difference between these techniques is that in FDM individual signals to be transmitted are assigned a different frequency with in a common bandwidth. In TDM, the multiple signals are transmitted in different time slots.
Frequency Division Multiplexing FDM Frequency Division Multiplexing FDM is a technique for transmitting multiple messages simultaneously over a wideband channel by first modulating the message signals onto several sub-carriers and forming a composite baseband signal that consists of the sum of these modulated sub-carriers. This composite signal may then be modulated on to the main carrier. The composite baseband signal then modulates a main transmitter to produce the FDM signal that is transmitted over the wide band channel.
It picks up the signal and demodulates it into the FDM signal. This is sent to a group of bandpass filters BPF , each centered on one of the carrier frequencies. Each filter passes only its channel and rejects all others. A channel demodulator then recovers each original input signal.
Telephone companies have been using FDM to send multiple telephone conversations over a minimum number of cables. The original signal is voice in the Hz range. The voice is used to modulate a sub-carrier. Each sub-carrier is on a different frequency.
These sub-carrier are then added together to form a single group. This multiplexing process is repeated at several levels so that very large number of users can communicate over a single communication channel. Time Division Multiplexing TDM Time Division Multiplexing TDM is the time interleaving of samples from several sources so that the information from these sources can be transmitted serially over a single communication channel.
However, each signal is transmitted for only a brief period of time. Each signal is allowed to use the channel for fixed period of time, one after another.
Once all the signals have been transmitted, the cycle repeats again and again. One transmission of each channel completes one cycle of operation called a frame. The cycle repeats itself at a high rate of speed. In this way, the data bytes of the individual channels are simply interleaved. Frame synchronization is needed at the TDM receiver so that the received multiplexed data can be sorted and directed to the appropriate output channel.
The frame sync can be provided to the receiver demultiplexer circuit either by sending a frame sync signal from the transmitter over a separate channel or by deriving the frame sync from the TDM signals itself. Any analog signal, be it voice or video can readily be transmitted by TDM techniques. This is accomplished by sampling the analog signal repeatedly at a high rate. By combining the concepts of TDM and PAM, you can see how multiple analog signals can be transmitted over a single channel.
That is, in order for the PAM signal to be accurately demultiplexed into the original sampled signal, some method must be used to ensure that the clock frequency used on the DEMUX is identical to that used at the transmitting multiplexer.
The most popular form of pulse modulation used in TDM systems is pulse code modulation. The system is depicted below. The multiplexer is done with a simple digital multiplexer. A binary counter drives a decoder that selects the desired input channel. Each bit of data is clocked in synchronous with the master clock. In Asynchronous systems, the timing is precise only for the bits with in each character or word. This is also called start stop signaling, because each character consists of start bit that start the receiver clock and concludes with one or two stop bits that terminates the clocking.
The synchronous transmission is more efficient because start and stop bits are not required. However the synchronous mode of transmission requires that the clocking signal be passed along with the data and that the receiver synchronize to the clocking signal. Intelligent TDM may be used to concentrate data arriving from many different terminals or sources. They are capable of providing speed, code and protocol conversion. The first category consists of multiplexer used in conjunction with digital computer systems to merge digital signals from several sources for TDM transmission over high-speed line to a digital computer.
The second category of TDM is used by the common carries such as the ATT, to combine different sources in to a high-speed digital TDM signal for transmission over toll networks.
Unfortunately, the standards adopted by North America and Japan are different from those that have been adopted in other parts of the world. The telephone industry has standardized the bit rates to 1. For example one analog television signal can be converted directly to Ds-3 data stream Similarly, the Ds streams can carry a mixture of information from a variety of sources such as video, VF and computers.
Other Multiple Access Methods 5. The resulting spread signals simultaneously occupy the same time and bandwidth, as shown in figure 5. The receiver uses the spreading code structure to separate out the different users. Figure 5. Space Division Multiplexing SDM Space-division multiplexing SDM uses direction angle as another dimension in signal space, which can be channelized and assigned to different users.
This is generally done with directional antennas, as shown in figure In practice SDM is often implemented using sectorized antenna arrays. In these arrays the o angular range is divided into N sectors. There is high directional gain in each sector and little interference between sectors.

In telecommunications , frequency-division multiplexing FDM is a technique by which the total bandwidth available in a communication medium is divided into a series of non-overlapping frequency bands , each of which is used to carry a separate signal. This allows a single transmission medium such as a cable or optical fiber to be shared by multiple independent signals. Another use is to carry separate serial bits or segments of a higher rate signal in parallel. The most common example of frequency-division multiplexing is radio and television broadcasting, in which multiple radio signals at different frequencies pass through the air at the same time. Another example is cable television , in which many television channels are carried simultaneously on a single cable. FDM is also used by telephone systems to transmit multiple telephone calls through high capacity trunklines, communications satellites to transmit multiple channels of data on uplink and downlink radio beams, and broadband DSL modems to transmit large amounts of computer data through twisted pair telephone lines, among many other uses.
(c) Describe how frequency division multiplexing (FDM) and time division multiplexing (TDM) allow multiple signals to be transmitted over the same channel. 1.
Classical circuit switching means a separate wire for each connection. This is still in common use for residential telephone connections: each subscriber has a dedicated wire to the Central Office. But a separate physical line for each connection is not a solution that scales well.
This paper proposes an efficient transmission scheme, Quasi-Orthogonal Time Division Multiplexing QOTDM , which employs the shift orthogonal property of the pulse function with raised-cosine spectral shape, and the signal waveforms are quasi-orthogonal in time domain. Comparing to orthogonal frequency division multiplexing OFDM , QOTDM is less sensitive to carrier frequency offset and power amplifier nonlinearities while keeping a similar spectral efficiency with OFDM due to single-carrier characteristics. QOTDM is a suitable consideration for the downlink transmission such as in satellite communications.
Multiplexing is used in cases where the signals of lower bandwidth and the transmitting media is having higher bandwidth. In this case, the possibility of sending a number of signals is more. In this, the signals are combined into one and are sent over a link that has greater bandwidth of media than the communicating nodes. There is a suitable frequency gap between the 2 adjacent signals to avoid over-lapping. Since the signals are transmitted in the allotted frequencies so this decreases the probability of collision. The frequency spectrum is divided into several logical channels, in which every user feels that they possess a particular bandwidth.
Time-division multiplexing TDM is a method of transmitting and receiving independent signals over a common signal path by means of synchronized switches at each end of the transmission line so that each signal appears on the line only a fraction of time in an alternating pattern. This method transmits two or more digital signals or analog signals over a common channel. It can be used when the bit rate of the transmission medium exceeds that of the signal to be transmitted. This form of signal multiplexing was developed in telecommunications for telegraphy systems in the late 19th century, but found its most common application in digital telephony in the second half of the 20th century. Time-division multiplexing was first developed for applications in telegraphy to route multiple transmissions simultaneously over a single transmission line.
This technique is applicable in telecommunications as well as computer networks. For instance, in telecommunications, one cable is used for carrying different telephone calls.
