A multistage multicarrier CDMA (MSMC-CDMA) receiver with enhanced multiple access interference (MAI) suppression is proposed for a reverse link time-multiplexed pilot symbols assisted system over multipath channels. The design of the receiver involves the following procedure. First, a blind adaptive matched filter is attached to each finger to perform despreading and combat MAI. Second, channel estimation and a RAKE combiner gives the estimates of the signal. Finally, signal reconstruction is accomplished by exploiting the channel estimate, data decisions, and signal's signature. The reconstructed signal is then subtracted from the data sent to the next stage. With signal reconstruction and subtraction as stages proceed, the MSMC-CDMA receiver can achieve nearly the performance of the optimal maximum SINR (MSINR) receiver, as confirmed by simulations.
