The inherent high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of multicarrier transmission, such as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) or discrete multi-tone (DMT), can lead to a significant degradation in the transmission power efficiency which is unacceptable especially in battery-powered terminals. Among the most popular PAPR reduction techniques proposed in the literature is the selective mapping (SLM) technique which has been shown to offer PAPR reductions of several decibels. However, the SLM technique requires invoking the inverse fast fourier transform (IFFT) process several times per transmitted OFDM block which increases the system's complexity and hence may result in long latencies and high power consumption. The authors propose a new low complexity post-IFFT PAPR reduction technique that can outperform the SLM technique in terms of PAPR reduction while its operational complexity is orders of magnitude less than that of SLM technique.
