A filter-bank multicarrier-quadrature amplitude modulation (FBMC-QAM) system with two prototype filters for transmitting QAM symbol is proposed, and the orthogonality conditions for the FBMC-QAM system without the intrinsic interference is derived. The proposed transmitter performs the individual filtering for the even and odd-numbered sub-carrier symbols, respectively. In order to satisfy the derived orthogonality conditions, we perform a sub-block wise reverse ordering procedure for the outputs of the odd-numbered sub-carrier filter. Also, this paper shows that the proposed FBMC-QAM system satisfies the suggested orthogonality conditions and can use the multiple-input multiple-output transmission schemes as the conventional orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. The signal-to-interference power ratio and the bit error rate (BER) for the proposed FBMC-QAM system are evaluated. Numerical results show that the proposed FBMC-QAM system has almost the same BER performance compared with the FBMC-OQAM and OFDM systems.
