Multicode code-division multiple access (MC-CDMA) and variable processing gain CDMA (VPG-CDMA) are very appealing techniques for achieving high bit-rate data transmission and providing significant capacity gain in wireless channels. This letter provides the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) reduction scheme by using a code selective allocation (CSA) in a MC VPG-CDMA system. From simulation results, the MC VPG-CDMA system experiences a reduced PAPR thanks to the CSA algorithm and maintains an acceptable performance degradation even if encountered with nonlinear distortions introduced by a level clipper.
