5G waveform candidates, such as FBMC, UFMC and GFDM, are designed to overcome limitations of LTE. For example, FBMC, UFMC and GFDM outperform LTE in spectral regrowth. Their much sharper power spectrum is a clear advantage over LTE. But what happens, if a non-linear device such as a power amplifier is used to amplify the signal? This video explores this behavior and provides interesting results.
The demystifying 5G video series discusses main topics related to 5G including requirements, timeline, potential frequency and waveform candidates.
