Abstract

In this paper, we propose a blind successive interference cancellation receiver for asynchronous direct-sequence code-division multiple-access (DS-CDMA) systems using a maximum mean energy (MME) optimization criterion. The covariance matrix of the received vector is used in conjunction with the MME criterion to realize a blind successive interference canceler that is referred to as the BIC-MME receiver. The receiver executes interference cancellation in a successive manner, starting with the most dominant interference component and successively cancelling the weaker ones. The receiver is compared against various centralized and decentralized receivers, and it is shown to perform well in the presence of estimation errors of the covariance matrix, making it suitable for application in time-varying channels. We also analyze properties of the covariance matrix estimates which are relevant to the performance of the BIC-MME receiver. Further, the BIC-MME receiver is particularly efficient in the presence of a few strong interferers as may be the case in the downlink of DS-CDMA systems where intracell user transmissions are orthogonal. An iterative implementation that results in reduced complexity is also studied.
