Article
Discrete Fourier transform (DFT) is a widely used method of signal analysis in digital signal processing. The DFT converts a signal from time domain to frequency domain for further processing. For fixed-size sliding window applications of the DFT, the observer-based sliding DFT (oSDFT) algorithm has been shown to be stable, accurate, and theoretica...

Filter Bank Multi-Carrier (FBMC) modulation is a promising modulation technique that is expected to play an important role in future 5G systems alongside Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM). In spite of its attractive properties, mainly the signal is well localized in frequency and time, a major drawback to FBMC is the high signal pro...

We present a peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction method for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) or similar modulation schemes based on dynamic range compression and decompression. Initially, the decompressor was developed for compressed audio signals. With regard to OFDM, the greatest benefit of the method is that it can be e...

Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is a commonly used modulation scheme for high speed digital communication. The high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of the modulated signal is a major drawback, which may negatively affect the overall system performance if amplifiers with limited linear range are applied. One of the many PAPR red...

Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is a widely adopted modulation scheme in digital telecommunications systems. However, its high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) is one of the major challenges to overcome in practical systems. Active constellation extension (ACE) is an effective way to reduce the PAPR of the OFDM signal. In this p...

Cognitive Radio has been one of the key research topics in the wireless community for about 10 years. The digital switch-over in the TV bands provides opportunities for Cognitive Radio Systems (CRS) to operate in the UHF spectrum under incumbent protection restrictions.

All communication systems in which Or-thogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is applied suffer from a well-known problem: the high Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR) of the time domain OFDM signal.
