Peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction in multiplexed signals in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems has been a long-standing critical issue. Clipping and filtering (CF) techniques offer good performance in terms of PAPR reduction at the expense of a relatively high computational cost that is inherent in the repeated application of fast Fourier transform (FFT) operations. The ever-increasing demand for low-latency operation calls for the development of low-complexity novel solutions to the PAPR problem. To address this issue while providing an enhanced PAPR reduction performance, we propose a synchronous neural network (NN)-based solution to achieve PAPR reduction performance exceeding the limits of conventional CF schemes with lower computational complexity. The proposed scheme trains a neural network module using hybrid collections of samples from multiple OFDM symbols to arrive at a signal mapping with desirable characteristics. The benchmark NN-based approach provides a comparable performance to conventional CF. However, it can underfit or overfit due to its asynchronous nature which leads to increased out-of-band (OoB) radiations, and deteriorating bit error rate (BER) performance for high-order modulations. Simulations’ results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme in terms of the achieved cubic metric (CM), BER, and OoB emissions.
