Orthogonal Frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is a very attractive technique in wireless communications which provides robustness to channel fading and immunity to impulse interference. Despite of its advantages, one of the major drawbacks of OFDM system is very high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). Among the various PAPR reduction techniques, companding appears attractive for its simplicity and effectiveness. In this paper novel Low density parity check (LDPC) encoded new companding technique is proposed which offers improved bit error rate, minimizes out-of-band interference and reduce PAPR effectively. Simulation results illustrates the performance of the system under Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) and further evaluation is done for comparing the proposed companding technique with previous techniques.
