The effect of carrier frequency on the performance of an MC-CDMA (Multi-Carrier Code Division Multiple Access) system is considered. Bit error probability of the downlink of this system is analyzed taking into the effect of frequency offset. This paper will be focused on the derivation of the bit error probability mathematically. Derived results show that the performance of MC-CDMA is very sensitive even to a relatively minute degree of frequency offset. Parameters such as degree of carrier offset, number of subcarriers, number of users, method of combining, and type of channel will be varied so that the influence of each parameter can be assessed.
