This letter presents a novel multi-carrier code division multiple access (MC-CDMA) system called time domain synchronous MC-CDMA (TDS-MC-CDMA). Aided by the new training sequence (TS) with perfect autocorrelation in the time domain and flat frequency response in the frequency domain, the proposed TDS-MC-CDMA system outperform the traditional MC-CDMA system in terms of spectrum efficiency by about 10%. Simulations are carried out to demonstrate the good performance of the proposed scheme.
