In this paper, we propose a multichannel joint detector which eliminates other user, multipath, and intercarrier interference through a decorrelating process in a multicarrier 16-QAM direct-sequence code-division multiple-access system. The performance of the proposed detector under frequency-selective fading channel is analytically derived and compared to that of a conventional single-user detector. The symbol error ratio curve of the proposed detector does not show the error floor that is seen in the conventional detector, and the resultant performance is close to that of a multicarrier 16-QAM system without any interference.
