9-2: Superheterodyne Receivers
The highly amplified IF signal is finally applied to the demodulator, which recovers the original modulating information.
The demodulator may be a diode detector (for AM), a quadrature detector (for FM), or a product detector (for SSB).
The output of the demodulator is then usually fed to an audio amplifier.
