Clip

To separate a coupon from a bearer bond. A bearer bond contains no ownership information and the physical bearer is presumed to be the owner. The bond contains physical coupons that must be clipped in order to receive the interest payments. Bearer bonds have not been issued in the United States since 1982, and thus clipping has become a less common activity, applying only to long maturity bonds issued before then.

clip

To detach the interest coupons from a bearer bond. These coupons must be presented to a bank, a brokerage house, or the issuer's agent in order for the holder of the bearer bond to receive interest payments.

From Figure 11, we can see that the sensitivity of the received signals of the clipped and normalized OFDM system can be improved about 4.3, 4, 3.5, and 3 dB with CR of 4, 6, 8, and 10 compared with conventional OFDM, respectively.
Comparing Figure 10 with Figure 11, we can see that the sensitivity of the clipped and normalized OFDM system is higher than that of the conventional clipped OFDM system at the difference value of CR.
We proposed a digital clipped and normalized DDO-OFDM system and theoretically described its principles.
