The adoption of Carrier Aggregation (CA) technology enables the LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) system to support very-high-data-rate transmission over wide frequency bandwidths and to keep the backward compatibility of LTE system. Nevertheless, the authors have to deal with the significant increase of peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) associated with the carrier aggregation, which determines the efficiency of Power Amplifier (PA) and the coverage of the terminal. This paper proposes an improved Selected Mapping (SLM) scheme to reduce PAPR of the LTE-A uplink data and demodulation reference signal (DMRS) symbols by 2 to 3 dB for different component carrier (CC) numbers and modulation modes, in which the signaling overhead of conventional SLM is eliminated by exploiting the features of DMRS. The linear property of Inverse Fast Fourier Transformation (IFFT) is used to reduce the computational complexity of SLM. The proposed scheme with 4 initial phase sequences reduces the complex multiplications by 63.5% and the complex additions by 68.2% compared with the conventional SLM scheme with 16 phase sequences while keeping the similar PAPR reduction performance. © 2013 IEEE.
