Interference Cancellation in CDMA Systems Employing Complementary Codes Under Rician Fading Channels

  • D. Judson

The ideal correlation properties of single user code division multiple access (CDMA) systems with complementary codes (CC) are lost by multiple access interference and near–far effects in downlink frequency selective fading channels. This severity in interference has motivated to develop ways to overcome the threats with suitable suboptimal interference cancellation schemes. In this paper, we propose successive interference cancellation (SIC) for downlink CDMA systems with CC to improve the system capacity and reduce error rate under near–far situations. Theoretical study and extensive simulations were conducted to verify the effectiveness of proposed SIC under frequency selective Rician fading channels in achieving frequency diversity gain, close to theoretical lower bound in complementary coded CDMA (CC-CDMA) systems.
