Keywords: All Phase Orthogonal Frequency-division Multiplexing (APOFDM) | Carrier Frequency Offset (CFO) | In-ter-carrier Interference (ICI)

Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is a strong candidate for the next generation wireless communica-tion. But the frequency offset between the local oscillators at the transmitter and receiver causes a single frequency offset in the signal, while a time-varying channel can cause a spread of frequency offsets known as the Doppler spread. Frequency offsets ruin the orthogonal of OFDM sub-carriers and cause inter-carrier interference (ICI), therefore, quickly diminishing the performance of the system. A novel all phase OFDM (AP-OFDM) system is established. APFFT is introduced for the first time to overcome ICI aroused by carrier frequency offset (CFO) in OFDM systems. This scheme makes use of APFFT in time domain and zero inserting in frequency domain to reduce the amount of ICI gener-ated as a result of frequency offset, with little additional computational complexity. At the same time, the proposed sys-tem has zero phase error. It is proved to be correct and effective in mathematics. The simulation results indicate that AP-OFDM system has a better performance than conventional OFDM system.
