In this paper, we propose a new system architecture using complete complementary (CC) codes for a multicarrier MIMO CDMA system to combat multipath fading in wireless channels. Unlike traditional MIMO systems, complementary codes were designed at chip-level to achieve time and frequency-spreading for each antenna. We analyze the system performance in multipath fading channels. A closed form expression of bit error rate (BER) performance is obtained. Extensive simulations were conducted to verify the analytical results. Our results indicate that a CC coded MIMO system can effectively decrease BER and take advantage of diversity gain.
