Collaborative coding and decoding techniques for multiple access channel.

By F. Ali and B. Honary


It is highly desirable to use simple and effective multiple access coding and decoding techniques which are capable of multiple access function and error control. The collaborative coding multiple access (CCMA) techniques potentially permit efficient simultaneous transmission by several users sharing a common channel, without subdivision in time, frequency or orthogonal codes. The authors investigate the performance of uniquely decodable CCMA schemes employing hard decision and maximum likelihood decoding techniques. A low complexity maximum likelihood decoding technique is presented. The reliability performance of various coding schemes employing these decoding techniques are carried out in the presence of AWGN conditions. The simulation results are presented in the form of symbol and codeword error rates as a function of signal to noise ratios. It is shown that uniquely decodable CCMA schemes permit the multiple access function to be combined with that of forward error correction
