Abstract

For the reception of multicode direct sequence (DS)-CDMA signals, the MMSE frequency domain equalisation is applied instead of RAKE combining. The achievable BER performance in a frequency selective Rayleigh fading channel is evaluated by computer simulation. It is shown by computer simulation that the DS-CDMA with MMSE frequency domain equalisation outperforms the DS-CDMA with RAKE combining and shows only slight performance degradation compared to the MC-CDMA with minimum mean square error combining (MMSEC).
