Definitions for "Superheterodyne receiver"
a radio receiver that combines a locally generated frequency with the carrier frequency to produce a supersonic signal that is demodulated and amplified
The most widely used radio receiver in which the incoming signal is fed into a mixer and mixed with a signal from a local oscillator. The output produces an intermediate frequency that is amplified through an IF strip, detected by a diode and amplified in an audio amplifier.
A receiver that mixes the incoming signal with a locally generated signal (local oscillator) to produce a fixed, low intermediate frequency (IF) signal for amplification in the IF amplifiers.
