The main targets of any direct-sequence code division multiple-access (DS/CDMA) mobile communication system are to overcome the multipath fading influences as well as the near/far effect and to increase the capacity. Many optimal and suboptimal detection approaches have been proposed and analyzed in the literature. Unfortunately, most of them share the drawback of requiring a complex implementation and do not represent a practical solution. This paper proposes a simple interference cancellation receiver for applications in DS/CDMA uplink communications. This receiver allows users to overcome the near/far effect and to enhance the system capacity. Differently from previous methods, the interference cancellation is performed on a one-shot basis. The performance of the proposed interference cancellation receiver is derived through computer simulations. However, a suitable analytical approach is also presented in the appendix in order to evaluate the bit error rate (BER) performance in the particular case of synchronous users and the transmission channel being affected only by additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). The good behavior of the proposed approach is demonstrated by means of comparisons in terms of the BER performance and implementation complexity with the classical RAKE receiver and different multiuser receivers previously proposed in the literature on this subject
