F-OFDM (Filtered-OFDM) is a flexible waveform that has been considered suitable for 5G and beyond systems for its improved spectrum utilization, moderates PAPR, low OOB emission, multiple asynchronous sub-band transmission, and high robustness to frequency selectivity. It can attain a desirable balance between frequency and time localizations for narrow bandwidths. It is also MIMO friendly. In this paper, a comprehensive design and analysis have been made to evaluate the performance of MIMO (4×4) CP-OFDM and F-OFDM systems for message bits transmission using several digital modulation techniques (16-QAM, 16-PSK, 16-DPSK, 64-QAM, 64-PSK, and 64-DPSK), RA channel coding, different windowed (Hanning, Hamming, Blackman, Blackman-Harris, RRC) sinc FIR filters for length N = 513, and MMSE signal detection technique. From MATLAB based simulation results, it is observed that F-OFDM reduces spectrum leakage thus enhances spectrum efficiency than conventional CP-OFDM. F-OFDM based system offers lower BER (Bit Error Rate) performance than CP-OFDM based system.
