The performance of a near-far-resistant, finite-complexity, minimum mean squared error (MMSE) linear detector for demodulating direct sequence (DS) code-division multiple access (CDMA) signals is studied, assuming that the users are assigned random signature sequences. We obtain tight upper and lower bounds on the expected near-far resistance of the MMSE detector, averaged over signature sequences and delays, as a function of the processing gain and the number of users. Since the MMSE detector…

Spectral efficiency for asynchronous code division multiple access (CDMA) with random spreading is calculated in the large system limit allowing for arbitrary chip waveforms and frequency-flat fading and the analysis of linear MMSE detectors shows that the limiting interference effects can be decoupled both in the user domain and in the frequency domain such that the concept of effective interference spectral density arises.
