Abstract—For Sparse Code Multiple Access (SCMA) with the dimension distance-based codebook design, the convergence reliability of some detected layers in their corresponding decision processes was unsatisfactory at the Message Passing Algorithm (MPA) receiver. Driven by this problem, in the dimension distance-based codebook design of SCMA, an advanced criterion of permutation set is proposed to increase the variance of the set of absolute differences between the sums of distances between interfering dimensions of transmitted codewords multiplexed on all resource nodes. Simulation results show that the Bit Error Rate (BER) performance of the proposed criterion outperforms that of traditional criterion under the same spectral efficiency.
