We propose a post-filter (digital filter applied after the correlator) to reduce multiple-access interference (MAI) in the correlator output in asynchronous communications. Optimum filter coefficients are derived for Markov and i.i.d. codes. It is shown that post-filter is not needed for Markov case. Variance of MAI is reduced in i.i.d. codes and it becomes equal to that of Markov codes; thus, both will have the same bit error rate (BER) performance. This post-filter reduces level of MAI in the correlator output for Gold codes as well.
