Orthogonal frequency and code-division multiplexing (OFCDM) systems have been introduced for high-speed data transmission in future wireless mobile communications. In this paper, a hybrid multicode interference cancellation (MCI) and minimum mean-square error (MMSE) detection scheme is presented for the turbo-coded OFCDM systems. Channel estimation based on a code-multiplexed pilot channel is employed. The weights of the hybrid detection are derived theoretically and an effective method to generate the weights in practical applications is proposed. By means of computer simulation, the effects of system parameters on the performance are studied extensively. It is shown that the hybrid detection outperforms pure MMSE detection in various channel conditions, especially for high-level modulation schemes. To carry out interference regeneration for the hybrid detection, the conventional turbo decoding algorithm which only decodes systematic bits should be extended to decode parity bits as well. Moreover, two iterations in turbo decoding are sufficient to provide good performance for the system with the multistage hybrid detection. Finally, given time-domain spreading factor N-T, the system performance improves with frequency-domain spreading factor N-F. However, the frequency diversity gain is saturated when N-F is large (i.e., N-F >= 16).
