Abstract

In this paper, expressions are derived for the bit error rate (BER) of the multicarrier-CDMA (MC-CDMA) downlink in the presence of pure impulsive interference and a frequency-selective fading and the BER performance is numerically evaluated by a Monte-Carlo simulation method. Minimum mean square error combining (MMSEC) and orthogonal restoration combining (ORC) are considered for frequency-domain equalization. The joint weight of antenna diversity reception using maximal ratio combining (MRC) and frequency equalization combining is derived. The MC-CDMA transmission performance in the presence of pure impulsive interference is compared with that of DS-CDMA transmission.
