In an incoherent direct-sequence optical code-division multiple-access (DS-OCDMA) system, multiple-access interference (MAI) is one of the principal limitations. To mitigate MAI, the parallel interference cancellation (PIC) technique can be used to remove nondesired users' contribution. In this paper, we study four DS-OCDMA receivers based on the PIC technique with hard limiters placed before the nondesired users or before the desired user receiver, or both. We develop, for the ideal synchronous case, the theoretical upper bound of the error probability for the four receivers. Significant performance improvement is obtained by comparison with conventional receivers in the case of optical orthogonal codes. The paper highlights that the number of active users with null error probability is doubled, compared with conventional receivers. Finally, we show that, thanks to their good performances, the PIC structures permit considerably reducing the minimal code length required to have 30 users with bit-error rate <10 -9. So, the hardware constraints are relaxed for realistic application
