Future mobile communication systems aim to provide extremely high-speed data transmission, especially in the downlink. The broadband orthogonal frequency- and code-division multiplexing system with two-dimensional spreading (time and frequency domain spreading) is becoming a very promising technique for highspeed wireless communications due to its advantages over OFDM. This article presents the basic structure and main functions of the OFCDM system. A nonsequential code assignment scheme is introduced. The novel detection method for the OFCDM, called hybrid multi-code interference cancellation and minimum mean square error detection, is described. The application of advanced techniques to the OFCDM, such as turbo coding and MIMO, is also discussed. It is shown in this article that OFCDM is superior to OFDM.
