Abstract

Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) uses Single-Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Accesses (SC-FDMA) for uplink, because it has robust performance against the Peak Average Power Ratio (PAPR), compared to Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA). SC-FDMA schemes include Interleaved FDMA (IFDMA) and Localized FDMA (LFDMA), both of which are commonly practiced in LTE-A uplink. IFDMA allocates distributed frequency carriers for users, whereas LFDMA allocates localized frequency carriers for users. The frequency allocation in an IFDMA scheme exhibits better PAPR performance, whereas the advantage of LFDMA is its lower complexity requirements. In this paper, a new scheme is introduced that integrates IFDMA and LFDMA by using a variable interleave allocation of subcarriers in the bandwidth. Here, Generalized Interleaved Frequency Division Multiple Accesses (GIFDMA), is used as a master key that controls the allocation for interleaved and localized FDMA, also known as L/I FDMA. This integration of IFDMA and LFDMA has been derived theoretically and empirically. Simulations are conducted to investigate the effect of different parameters on the GIFDMA PAPR performance, which is compared to that of conventional IFDMA and LFDMA. The simulation results revealed that the proposed GIFDMA provides PAPR performance comparable to that of both LFDMA and IFDMA.
