In this paper, a Multi-user OFDM based Chaos Shift Keying (MU OFDM-DCSK) modulation is presented. In this system, the spreading operation is performed in time domain over the multi-carrier frequencies. To allow the multiple access scenario without using excessive bandwidth, each user has NP predefined private frequencies from the N available frequencies to transmit its reference signal and share with the other users the remaining frequencies to transmit its M spread bits. In this new design, NP duplicated chaotic reference signals are used to transmit M bits instead of using M different chaotic reference signals as done in DCSK systems. Moreover, given that NP << M, the MU OFDM-DCSK scheme increases spectral efficiency, uses less energy and allows multiple-access scenario. Therefore, the use of OFDM technique reduces the integration complexity of the system where the parallel low pass filters are no longer needed to recover the transmitted data as in multicarrier DCSK scheme. Finally, the bit error rate performance is investigated under multi-path Rayleigh fading channels, in the presence of multi-user and additive white Gaussian noise interferences. Simulation results confirm the accuracy of our analysis and show the advantages of this new hybrid design.
