MATLAB code, Python code

Pruned DFT-s FBMC has the same PAPR as SC-FDMA:

Pruned DFT-s FBMC reduces the ramp-up and ramp-down period of FBMC, allowing low-latency transmissions:

Pruned DFT-s FBMC has very low out-of-band emissions, comparable to FBMC:

Pruned DFT-s FBMC outperforms SC-FDMA in doubly-selective channels:

Additional research:

  • OFDM
  • FBMC
  • High velocity scenarios
  • Channel estimation
  • Testbed measurements
