   Dual Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF)

DTMF signaling is a means of transferring information from a user to the telephone network through the use of in-band audio tones. Each digit of information is assigned a simultaneous combination of one of a lower group of frequencies and one of a higher group of frequencies to represent each digit or character. There are 8 tones that are capable of producing 16 combinations; 0-9, *, #, A-D. The letters A-D are normally used for non-traditional systems (such as the military telephone systems).

This diagram shows how DTMF tones are created. This example shows that DTMF tones consist of two frequencies that are combined. These frequencies are selected from a matrix of 4 (low group) by 4 (high group) frequencies. Each button on a telephone is assigned one frequency from a high group and one from a low group. This diagram shows that DTMF signals are used to represent numbers, characters and extended digits on a telephone keypad.
