Main Article Content
This article aims to establish a performance comparison between the single-carrier with cyclic prefix (SCCP) and the orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) for frequency selective block fading channels without channel information on the transmitter side and using error correcting codes. For the SCCP scheme, it will be considered both linear and decision-feedback equalizers implementations. We will assess both schemes bit-error rates and capacities for different modulations and coding rates using different approaches. Firstly, analytical results are obtained for a convex analysis framework based on the OFDM effective signal-to-noise ratio and the cutoff rate together with the Shannon capacity analysis. In addition, Monte Carlo simulations are evaluated, corroborating previous analytical results and giving further insights on the comparison.
