pulse-frequency modulation (PFM)


pulse-frequency modulation (PFM): Modulation in which the pulse repetition rate is varied in accordance with some characteristic of the modulating signal. Note: Pulse-frequency modulation is analogous to frequency modulation of a carrier wave, in which the instantaneous frequency is a continuous function of the modulating signal.
