Multiuser Detection Assisted Time- and Frequency-Domain Spread Multicarrier Code-Division Multiple-Access
IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, 55, (1), .
In this contribution, we study a reduced-complexity multiuser detection aided multicarrier direct-sequence code-division multipleaccess (MC DS-CDMA) scheme, which employs both time (T)-domain and frequency (F)-domain spreading. We investigate the achievable detection performance in the context of synchronous TF-domain spread MC DS-CDMA when communicating over an additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel. Five detection schemes are investigated, which include the single-user correlation based detector, the joint TF-domain decorrelating multiuser detector (MUD), the joint TF-domainMMSEMUD, the separate TF-domain decorrelating/MMSE MUD, and the separate TF-domain MMSE/decorrelating MUD. Our simulation results show that the separate TF-domain MUD schemes are capable of achieving a similar bit error rate (BER) performance to that of the significantly more complex joint TF-domain MUD schemes. Index Terms—Code-division multiple-access (CDMA), decorrelating, frequency-domain spreading, joint detection, minimum mean square error (MMSE), multicarrier (MC), multiuser detection, separate detection, time-domain spreading.
