Complete complementary codes (CCC) refer to a set of two-dimensional matrices, which have zero non-trivial aperiodic auto- and cross- correlation sums. A modern application of CCC is in interference-free multicarrier code-division multiple-access (MC-CDMA) communications. In this paper, we first show that in asynchronous "fractional-delay" uplink channels, CCC-MC-CDMA systems suffer from orthogonality loss, which may lead to huge interference increase when a conventional correlator based receiver is deployed. Then, by exploiting the correlation properties of CCC, we present a fractional-delay-resilient receiver which is comprised of a chip-spaced correlating array. Analysis and simulations validate the interference-free achievability of the proposed CSCA receiver in strong interference scenarios.
