This letter aims to design a low-complexity subcarrier-power allocation scheme to improve the communication reliability of various types of frequency-division multipleaccess (FDMA) systems. Both uplink and downlink are considered. Specifically, a low-complexity worst subcarrier avoiding (WSA) subcarrier-allocation scheme is proposed, in order to avoid assigning users the subcarriers experiencing severe fading. After the subcarrier-allocation, channel-inversion assisted powerallocation is employed to assign the subcarriers the corresponding power. Our studies and simulation results show that the achievable error performance of the FDMA systems employing the proposed subcarrier-power allocation algorithm is independent of the multiplexing method. The proposed algorithm outperforms the existing subcarrier-power allocation algorithms that have a similar complexity as the proposed one.
