A Unified Approach to the Analysis of Multicarrier DS-CDMA over Nakagami-$M$ Fading Channels

Yang, L-L. and Hanzo, L. (2001) A Unified Approach to the Analysis of Multicarrier DS-CDMA over Nakagami-$M$ Fading Channels At Globecom'2001, United States. 25 - 29 Nov 2001. , pp. 3429-3433.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


A class of unified multicarrier DS-CDMA (MC DS-CDMA) schemes is defined and its performance is considered over multipath Nakagami-$M$ fading channels. The spacing between two adjacent subcarriers of the unified MC DS-CDMA scheme is a variable, allowing us to gain insight into the effects of the spacing on the bit error rate (BER) performance of MC DS-CDMA systems. This unified MC DS-CDMA scheme includes the subclasses of multitone DS-CDMA and orthogonal MC DS-CDMA as special cases. The optimum spacing of the MC DS-CDMA system required for achieving the minimum BER is investigated and the BER performance of the system having optimum spacing is evaluated. The resultant BER is compared with that of both multitone DS-CDMA and orthogonal MC DS-CDMA.
