Primarily the data are converted from serial to parallel and spread with the pseudo code of the user in order to obtain the Y(t) output of the MC-CDMA system with M users and N subcarriers for which the transmitter block is indicated in Fig.
In this case, the Y(t) output of an MC-CDMA system with N subcarrier and M users can be presented as indicated below.
The SCMA is a multi-dimensional codebook-based non-orthogonal spreading technique; it is a type of MC-CDMA with a particular choice of a sparse code book facilitating low-complexity maximum likelihood (ML) detection.
Due to their special signal structure, MC-CDMA signals will not experience significant linear distortion in fading channels where the symbol duration is much larger than the delay spread, which is a measure of the length of the impulse response of the channel.
To mitigate the effect of ICI and to overcome the transmitter complexity of MC-CDMA system, duobinary coded receiver phase rotated conjugate cancellation (RPRCC) with pilot based CFO estimation is proposed in this work.
Due to narrowband subcarriers used in MC-CDMA systems, the communication quality is degraded by the Intercarrier Interference (ICI) in the presence of carrier frequency offset.
The PSO algorithm based MUD is proposed for MC-CDMA system, which aims to equalize independent fading of all sub carriers and also compared with different MUDs.
To improve the performance of MC-CDMA systems, multi-user detections (MUD) are applied.
In addition, the flexibility offered by the spread spectrum (SS) and time division multiplexing (TDM) techniques motivated many researchers to investigate several MC combined multiple access schemes, such as MC-CDMA, OFDMA and MC-TDMA.
