  • The primary disadvantage of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) is the high time-domain peak-to-average power ratio (PAR) that severely limits the transmitter power efficiency. The PAR can be globally minimized by distorting the OFDM constellation subject to a constraint on the error vector magnitude (EVM). In this paper, we demonstrate that an optimal amount of EVM exists for minimizing the transmitter power consumption while maintaining a constant bit error rate (BER) at the… CONTINUE READING
