A pilot symbol-assisted coherent multistage interference canceller (PSA-COMSIC) using recursive channel estimation is proposed for DS-CDMA mobile radio cellular systems. In the proposed scheme, since the channel variation due to fading is recursively estimated at each interference canceling stage, the accuracy of channel estimation is successively improved. The bit error rate (BER) performances against average Eb/N0 (signal energy per bit-to-noise power spectral density ratio) and capacity in the isolated cell are investigated by computer simulations. The simulations demonstrate that the capacity using the PSA-COMSIC with recursive channel estimation is about 1.6 times higher than that of the conventional matched filter receiver with channel coding and bit-interleaving in the interference-limited environments.
