The peak to average power ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) communication system will be reduced using reconfigurable peak cancellation (RPC). RPC will also aid in improves the error vector magnitude (EVM) and reduces adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR) in OFDM communication system. The proposed RPC design methodology and practical implementation using field programmable gate array (FPGA) are discussed. The proposed RPC has been demonstrated using VIRTEX-7 XC7Z100 dual-core FPGA device with less hardware difficulty and minimum utilization of FPGA resources. The proposed RPC improves the efficiency of OFDM communication process by reducing complementary cumulative distribution function (CCDF) with respect to instantaneous power in dB. A comparison analysis was done between the existing selective mapping (SLM) method with proposed RPS method with respect FPGA resource utilization. The proposed RPC is implemented using VIRTEX-7 XC7Z100 dual-core FPGA device. Its effectively utilizing sub-carriers, fast Fourier transform (FFT) filter, bandwidth, and sampling frequency. Due to parallel switching operation, it reduces the PAPR, ACLR and improves EVM in OFDM signal with less hardware complexity.
