New waveforms are considered by the fifth generation (5G) of cellular networks to exploit the underutilized fragmented spectrum. FBMC is one possibility as it provides better adjacent channel leakage. This paper brings a first estimate of silicon area for FBMC in comparison to OFDM assuming a CMOS 65nm technology. The paper concludes that the silicon area overhead introduced by much more complex waveforms is deemed acceptable.
