Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) technology is a significant topic of the present 5G investigation. A possible NOMA approach is Sparse Code Multiple Access (SCMA), increasing next-generation communication's ability to handle multiple users. In SCMA, codebook designing and optimization are crucial components that define the performance of multiple access systems. In this work, the complete design procedure of the SCMA codebook based on interleaving is explained and simulated. Furthermore, a chaotic interleaving based onArnold’sCat map is proposed to reduce the computational complexity. The performance of the SCMA codebook based on interleaving is evaluated through comparison with selected codebooks for SCMA multiplexing. The measures used for performance evaluation include Bit Error rate (BER), Peak to Average Power Ratio(PAPR), and minimum EuclidianDistance(MED). The results show that the proposed codebook with chaotic interleaving achieves comparable performance to the traditional codebook based on interleaving and less MED and higher BER compared to computer-generated and 16-star QAM codebook design methods but with reduced complexity.
