Abstract : The patent describes a modulator where a transmission line feeds a PIN diode with an information signal. A modulating signal biases the diode so as to switch the diode between forward and reverse bias at an r.f. frequency. The PIN diode exhibits variable capacitance during switching which results in the generation, on the transmission line, of a single sideband modulated signal.
