The authors present an accurate analysis for multicode code division multiple access (CDMA) systems equipped with a multipath interference canceler (MPIC) over multipath fading channels. This letter verifies that the previous analysis has used the additional Gaussian approximation (AGA) for multipath interferences so that there is the performance mismatch between the previous analysis and simulations. Furthermore, it is confirmed that the proposed analysis, which does not use AGA, provides an analytical bound.
