Performance Comparison of FH/MC DS-CDMA with Single- and Multi-Carrier DS-CDMA

Yang, L-L. and Hanzo, L. (2000) Performance Comparison of FH/MC DS-CDMA with Single- and Multi-Carrier DS-CDMA At IST Mobile Communications Summit 2000. 01 - 04 Oct 2000. , pp. 705-710.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


In this contribution we review the slow frequency hopping multicarrier direct-sequence code-division multiple-access (SFH/MC DS-CDMA). Then, the system's performance is ecalated and compared to that of the conventional single-carrier (SC) DS-CDMA and MC DS-CDMA under the assumptions of constant system bandwidth and of constant transmitted signal power. Both random and 'uni$ormlFH are considered and their advantages as well as disadvantages are investigated. We assume that the system operates in a multipath Nakagami-m fading environment and a maximum ratio combining (URC) assisted RAKE receiver is used for demodulation.
