We detail the development of a near-far (NF) resistant sliding window decorrelating algorithm (SLWA) that overcomes the near-far problem (NFP) pertaining to the conventional linear correlation receiver (CLCR) and alleviates some of the limitations of the standard decorrelator. The SLWA architecture is extended to incorporate differentially coherent multipath (RAKE) diversity combining techniques and hence achieves simultaneous rejection of multiuser and multipath interference. This paper also presents a novel algorithm for updating the decorrelator coefficients using a fully parallel architecture. We present a mathematical model for the performance of a sliding window scheme, the main contribution of which is the analysis of finite sequence length multipath decorrelation under the practical limitation of incomplete RAKE combining. In addition to numerical results, we present results pertaining to capacity improvements achieved over the CLCR, derived from a simulation of a multiuser direct-sequence code-division multiple-access (DS-CDMA) mobile radio system
