ABSTRACT
The power consumptionof a minimum mean square error (MMSE)
multi-carrier CDMA receiver implemented in digital hardware is
considered. A low power block based architecture is investigated
for the combiner sub-system, and compared with a multiply accu-
mulate circuit approach. Simulations using data consistent with
typical performance of a multi-carrier CDMA receiver indicate
that the block based approach can produce a power reduction of
around 50%.
1. INTRODUCTION
Multi-Carrier CDMA [1, 2] is a spread spectrum technology which
combinesthe advantagesof OFDM (orthogonal frequency division
multiplexing) and CDMA (code division multiple access) to pro-
duce a spectrally efficient multi-user radio access system. This
