PEAK DETECTION uses the amplitude, or duration, of a pulse to charge a holding capacitor and
restore the modulating waveform.
A LOW-PASS FILTER is used to demodulate pdm by averaging the pulse amplitude over the
entire period between pulses.
PULSE CONVERSION is used to convert ppm, pdm, or pcm to pdm or pam for demodulation.
