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, we present a comprehensive survey on complementary code (CC)-based multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) code-division multiple access (CDMA) for futuristic wireless communications. This paper starts with the construction of CCs and then proceeds to describe the design of CC-based CDMA and MIMO wireless communication systems. Complementary-coded chip-level space–time coding offers a unique paradigm to implement multiuser MIMO systems, opening up a new dimension to combine multiple-access and multiple-antenna techniques in a unified platform for a possible system design optimization of a wireless communication system in the future. In this paper, we will also discuss various potential research topics and technical challenges that need to be tackled before a complementary-coded MIMO CDMA system can be implemented in practical wireless applications.
