In this paper, we study the influence of decoding order on the capacity of multimedia DS-CDMA systems with imperfect successive interference cancellation. In contrast to previous studies, cancellation errors are assumed to be different for different users in this work. For any given decoding order, we derive the necessary power allocation that guarantee the QoS of the multimedia traffic. Based on this result, we provide that instead of the descending order of data rate as suggested in some literature, the system capacity is maximized by decoding users according to the ascending order of cancellation errors. We also prove that this capacity-optimal decoding order that makes total residual interference minimum at the same time. Our results are verified by numerical example.
