In this paper, the authors combine a Space-Time Block Code (STBC) with a Multi-Carrier Code Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA) system. MC-CDMA is probable to be one of the most promising access methods for future wireless communication schemes. In fact, MC-CDMA achievements the benefits of both the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (OFDM) multi-carrier modulation and of the Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technique. A development of STBC MC-CDMA system using phase matrix in multipath fading channel is proposed and the performance of the system is analyzed.
