A Unified Approach to the Analysis of Multicarrier DS-CDMA over Nakagami-$M$ Fading Channels
arxiv: Computer Science::Performance | Computer Science::Information Theory | Physics::Computational Physics | Computer Science::Networking and Internet Architecture
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.
