Combined with N-continuous (NC) precoding, the spatial modulation (SM) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system offers considerable sidelobe suppression for the downlink transmission, at the cost of additional interference to the transmit signal. Therefore, this paper focuses on investigating the impact of the NC precoder on the bit error rate (BER) performance of the SM-OFDM system. The BER performance is analyzed over the frequency-selective Rayleigh fading channel under two distinct scenarios, i.e., perfect channel estimation and interference suppression based minimum mean square error (MMSE) channel estimation. First, we propose an approximate system model for the NC precoded SM-OFDM system along with an analysis on the introduced interference, and then derive the average BER performance of the system with perfect channel estimation. Based on the above proposed approximate system model, we further analyze the interference based upon MMSE channel estimation, and investigate the characteristics of channel estimation errors. Furthermore, we derive the average BER performance of the NC precoded SM-OFDM system with imperfect channel estimation. The numerical results show that the analytical BER closely matches its simulated counterpart under different system configurations, and demonstrate that the proposed approximate system model is in good agreement with the precise one.
