OFDM combined with TDM (OFDM/TDM) can be used to reduce a high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of OFDM, but the PAPR reduction is not sufficient. To further reduce the PAPR, an amplitude clipping can be applied. In this letter, we investigate the effect of clipping on OFDM/TDM with and without channel coding. It is shown that amplitude clipped OFDM/TDM has an advantage over clipped OFDM with respect to the PAPR.
