In this brief, a multi-carrier differential chaos shift keying system capable of mitigating channel noise is proposed. In this system, subcarriers are allocated to the reference and data signals in an optimal way, while noise reduction is achieved through reference diversity. To verify its performance, the bit error rate of the proposed system over multipath Rayleigh fading channels is derived, together with a detailed discussion about the determination of the optimal number of reference-carrying subcarriers. Extensive simulations are carried out for performance evaluation, which are further compared to other state-of-the-art systems. Results confirm the superior bit error rate performance of the proposed system, which has only small loss in energy and spectral efficiencies.
