A new Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) governing the SNIR evolution of a Successive Interference Canceller (SIC) for DS-CDMA is derived when the number of users tends to infinity and all users share the same channel encoder. Using Variational Calculus, this ODE is applied to obtaining the energy profile that maximizes the average spectral efficiency when a constraint on the power unbalance (maximum power to minimum power ratio) of received users is enforced. The conditions for extremality of the optimum energy profile are established in terms of the common encoder's Packet Error Rate (PER) function.
