Multi-Code CDMA (MC-CDMA) can not only be integrated easily with a conventional CDMA system, but also achieve good spectral efficiency and high processing gain. MC-CDMA requires a linear amplifier due to the increasing value of its peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) as the number of codes increases. As such, a multi-phased MC-CDMA (MP-CDMA) system is proposed to provide a variable rate service that is not susceptible to the nonlinear characteristics of an amplifier. A clipping technique is used between the output of a multi-code modulator and the input of an MPSK modulator to improve the performance of the MPSK chip demodulator and reduce the system's complexity. System performance is analyzed and compared with the number of codes and clipping levels. The optimum clipping level is also evaluated for the number of codes on both AWGN and flat fading channels.
