Selected mapping (SLM) is an effective method for addressing high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) issues in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. However, the standard SLM approach introduces additional data decoding challenges in the form of side information (SI) transmission and estimation. In general, SI transmission reduces data throughput and SI estimation normally involves computationally complex procedures, which increase design costs. To eliminate the need for both SI transmission and SI estimation, this paper presents an investigation into the PAPR reduction and BER performance of a new technique based on a modified SLM approach. It is shown that the proposed method simplifies data decoding through SI cancellation without SI transmission. Results show that the proposed method produces similar PAPR reduction performance and BER performance as standard SLM based OFDM system, which presumes perfect SI estimation, within a frequency non-selective (flat) fading channel.
