Blind PARAFAC Receivers for DS-CDMA Systems

This paper links the direct-sequence code-division multiple access (DS-CDMA) multiuser separation-equalization-detection problem to the parallel factor (PARAFAC) model, which is an analysis tool rooted in psychometrics and chemometrics.

Exploiting this link, it derives a deterministic blind PARAFAC DS-CDMA receiver with performance close to nonblind minimum mean-squared error (MMSE). The proposed PARAFAC receiver capitalizes on code, spatial, and temporal diversity-combining, thereby supporting small sample sizes, more users than sensors, and/or less spreading than users.

Interestingly, PARAFAC does not require knowledge of spreading codes, the specifics of multipath (interchip interference), DOA-calibration information, finite alphabet/constant modulus, or statistical independence/whiteness to recover the information-bearing signals.

Instead, PARAFAC relies on a fundamental result regarding the uniqueness of low-rank three-way array decomposition due to Kruskal (and generalized herein to the complex-valued case) that guarantees identifiability of all relevant signals and propagation parameters. These and other issues are also demonstrated in pertinent simulation experiments.
