A communication system with non-linear power amplifier (PA) is considered. We introduce three major performance criteria of the system: (i) power efficiency of the PA, (ii) spectral purity of the transmitted signal expressed by adjacent channel interference, and (iii) transmission performance expressed by mutual information or symbol error rate. In order to fulfill the first two criteria it is proposed to use iterative clipping and filtering (ICF) at the transmitter together with low input back-off, while the third criterion is obtained by modified iterative receiver (MIR). The proposed MIR is based on the well-known iterative receiver, but with ICF in the feedback path. The obtained results show that the proposed system is better than its competitors when considering the three performance criteria together. The analysis and results are focused on OFDM; however, the proposed approach may be applied to single carrier.
