Abstract This paper presents a new low-complexity multicarrier modulation (MCM) technique based on lattices which achieves a peak-to-average power ratio (PAR) as low as three. The scheme can be viewed as a drop in replacement for the discrete multitone (DMT) modulation of an asymmetric digital subscriber line modem. We show that the lattice-MCM retains many of the attractive features of sinusoidal-MCM, and does so with lower implementation complexity, O(N), compared with DMT, which requires O(N log N) operations. We also present techniques for narrowband interference rejection and power profiling. Simulation studies confirm that performance of the lattice-MCM is superior, even compared with recent techniques for PAR reduction in DMT.

Additional Notes This paper represents the first major success in an ongoing collaboration with Iain Collings, then at The University of Sydney, now CSIRO. The key technology in this paper is also the subject of an international patent. IEEE Transactions on Communications is in the Top 10 (#8) highest impact-factor journals in the field of telecommunications, as reported by ISI Web of Knowledge. It has already been cited by another IEEE Trans. Commun. paper (January, 2006).
