In this paper, an adaptive parallel interference cancellation (PIC) receiver is introduced for asynchronous multicarrier code division multiple access based (MC-CDMA) communications systems. The multiple access interference (MAI) estimates are obtained using the bit estimates from the previous stage and the adaptive weights for the bit estimates. The adaptive weights are updated by minimizing the mean squared error between the received signal and its estimate based on the adaptation of the normalized least mean square (LMS) algorithm. The results from the simulations show that the performance of conventional PIC (CPIC) and adaptive PIC (APIC) can be different depending on the combining schemes used.
