In this paper, successive intracell interference cancellation (IIC) of the wideband-code division multiple access (W-CDMA) signal at the mobile unit is considered. Three new interference cancellation techniques suitable for the downlink of any CDMA system with orthogonal spreading are proposed. No prior knowledge of users' spreading codes or even their spreading factors are required for interference cancellation. A new term, effective spreading code, has been introduced, which is defined as the interfering user physical code as seen by the desired user within the desired user symbol duration. The mobile receiver estimates the effective spreading codes of the interfering users regardless of their spreading factors using fast Walsh transform (FWT) correlators (instead of the regular correlators) and uses this information to suppress the intracell multiuser interference. Three different interference-suppressing techniques are studied: subtraction; combined interfering signal projection; and separate interfering signal subspace projection. The complexity of the proposed techniques is low compared to conventional interference cancellation techniques. For a W-CDMA system and the IMT-2000 vehicular channel model, a capacity increase of up to 150% of the original (without IIC) system capacity is shown
