Application of Walsh Functions to an FM Stereo Demodulator
In the conventional FM stereo demodulator, interference from adjacent channels is demodulated by the harmonics of a square-wave switching signal resulting in a high-pitched whistle-type noise. In this new demodulator no such noise is generated because the switching square waves are derived from Walsh functions. The low-pass filter can therefore be eliminated, producing a phase-linear composite signal characteristic with high separation and low distortion.
