In a single-carrier communication system, pulse shaping is
required to bandlimit the signal and ensures it meets the
spectrum mask. In this paper, a root raised cosine (RRC) filter
is used to pulse shape the SC-FDMA signals. RRC is used                                     10

as the transmit and receive filter in a digital communication
system to perform matched filtering. The combined response

of two such filters is that of the raised-cosine filter. The raised-
cosine filter is used for pulse-shaping in digital modulation                                10              Proposed DFDMA

different sub-carrier mapping scheme for LTE SC-FDMA
systems. We derive the time and frequency domain signals
of different sub-carrier mapping scheme, and numerically
compare PAPR characteristics using CCDF of PAPR. We come
to the conclusion that the IFDMA sub-carrier mapping with
RRC pulse shaping method has lowest PAPR values compare
to the other sub-carrier mapping methods. As a results, im-
proves the mean power output from a battery driven terminal
equipment and power amplifier efficiency. Therefore, SC-
FDMA is attractive for uplink transmissions since it reduces
the high PAPR seen with OFDMA.
