This letter evaluates the peak-to-average power ratio (PAR) performance in a space-time block coded (STBC) multicode CDMA (MC-CDMA) system using a selected mapping (SLM) approach. The ordinary method is to apply the SLM scheme for each transmit antenna individually, while the investigated SLM-based STBC MC-CDMA system selects the transmitted sequence with the lowest average PAR over all transmit antennas concurrently. SLM-based STBC MC-CDMA system retrieves the side information very accurately at the expense of a slight degradation of the PAR performance, which can improve the overall detection performance of the STBC MC-CDMA system in the presence of erroneous side information compared to the ordinary SLM approach.
