This paper examines a novel digital modulation/multiple access technique called Multi-Carrier Code Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA) where each data symbol is transmitted at multiple narrowband subcarriers. Each subcarrier is encoded with a phase offset of 0 or π based on a spreading code. Analytical results are presented on the performance of this modulation scheme in an indoor wireless multipath radio channel.
