The rapid increasing demand on high data rates in wireless communications systems has arisen in order to support broadband services. The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long Term Evolution (LTE) aims at very high peak data rates such as 1 Gbps in local areas and 100 Mbps in wide areas. LTE has adopted Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) as downlink and Single Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access (SC-FDMA) as uplink for multiple access schemes. SC-FDMA has drawn great attention as an attractive alternative to OFDMA, especially in the uplink communications where lower peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) greatly benefits the mobile terminal in terms of transmit power efficiency and reduced cost of the power amplifier. It has been adopted as the uplink multiple access scheme in 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE), or Evolved UTRA (E-UTRA). The SC-FDMA is almost similar to that of OFDMA systems in its complexity and it provides same throughput as that of OFDMA. In this paper give an overview of SC-FDMA. Also we analyze the effect of two subcarrier mappings used in SC-FDMA i.e. Localized FDMA (LFDMA) and Interleaved FDMA (IFDMA) on PAPR of SC-FDMA and makes a comparison of the two subcarrier mapping techniques. We do comparative study of PAPR characteristics using the complementary cumulative distribution function (CCDF) of PAPR.
