A novel convolutional code spread scheme for multi- carrier system with high diversity gain is proposed in this paper. This scheme, named by convolutional code spread multicarrier (CCSM), convolutionally spreads the data symbols onto several consecutive subcarriers with complementary sequences. Compared with the traditional OFDM and OFDM-CDM systems, CCSM enjoys high BER performance with equivalent spectrum efficiency in multipath Rayleigh fading channels. Moreover, the special structure of convolutional spreader in CCSM makes the system suitable for high order modulation, which undoubtedly endows the CCSM with the attractable capability of high transmission capacity.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing-code-division multiplexing (OFDM-CDM) is presented and investigated as alternative to conventional OFDM for high rate data transmission. An additional multipath diversity gain can be obtained with OFDM-CDM by spreading each data symbol in frequency and time. The optimum reliability information for the Viterbi (1979) decoder is derived for OFDM-CDM systems, and the tradeoff between spreading and channel coding in OFDM systems is presented. By using efficient interference cancellation or joint detection techniques, it can be shown that OFDM-CDM outperforms conventional OFDM with respect to bit error rate (BER) performance and bandwidth efficiency.

    ABSTRACT: The authors present an overview of new multiple access schemes based on a combination of code division and multicarrier techniques, such as multicarrier code-division multiple access (MC-CDMA), multicarrier direct sequence CDMA (multicarrier DS-CDMA), and multitone CDMA (MT-CDMA)
