In this paper, we propose a linearly processed filter-bank multicarrier (LP-FBMC) system which employs faster than Nyquist signaling to remove residual intrinsic interferences. We represent the FBMC transceiver in a matrix form and then apply singular value decomposition-based linear transformation in order to convert the overlapped FBMC data into parallel independent interference-free data. This interference-free characteristic of the proposed LP-FBMC system enables the use of conventional multiple antenna configurations. Performance evaluations show that out-of-band emission performance of the proposed LP-FBMC system is superior to those of conventional quadrature amplitude-based FBMC (FBMC-QAM) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing systems. Furthermore, the proposed LP-FBMC system outperforms the conventional FBMC-QAM in terms of bit error rate performance when high order modulation is employed under time-varying channel and multiuser uplink environment.
