This paper presents asymptotic multiuser efficiency (AME) performance analysis of the decorrelator based successive interference cancellation (DBSIC) DS-CDMA multiuser receiver DBSIC is similar to the conventional SIC receiver except that a decorrelator is used at each detection stage prior to cancellation. AMEs of DBSIC are compared with those of single-user matched filter, optimum, decorrelating and conventional SIC receivers over both additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and Rayleigh fading channels. It is shown that over AWGN channels, DBSIC AME is lower than the optimum receiver AME when the interfering user is weaker than the user of interest but approaches the unity optimum receiver AME as the interferer becomes stronger than the user of interest. For all spreading codes cross-correlation considered, DBSIC has a similar AME curve shape as the conventional SIC receiver but has a higher AME which remains positive for all user energy ratios, illustrating its near-far resistance over AWGN channels. The AME of DBSIC is better than that of the decorrelating detector when the interferer is much weaker or slightly stronger than the user of interest and has worse performance when the interferer is not much weaker. It is shown that DBSIC is completely near-far resistant over Rayleigh fading channels with the same AME as the decorrelating scheme for user 1 and as the optimum scheme for user 2, both AMEs being independent of the user energy ratio. This shows that DBSIC is preferable compared to the decorrelating detector, while still being less complex than the optimum scheme over Rayleigh fading channels
