SCMA and polar coding are possible candidates for 5G systems. In this paper, we firstly propose the joint iterative detection and decoding (JIDD) receiver for the uplink polar coded sparse code multiple access (PC-SCMA) system. Then, the EXIT chart is used to investigate the performance of the JIDD receiver. Additionally, we optimize the system design and polar code construction based on the EXIT chart analysis. The proposed receiver integrates the factor graph of SCMA detector and polar soft-output decoder into a joint factor graph, which enables the exchange of messages between SCMA detector and polar decoder iteratively. Simulation results demonstrate that the JIDD receiver has better BER performance and lower complexity than the separate scheme. Specifically, when polar code length N=256 and code rate R=1/2 , JIDD outperforms the separate scheme 4.8 and 6 dB over AWGN channel and Rayleigh fading channel, respectively. It also shows that, under 150% system loading, the JIDD receiver only has 0.3 dB performance loss compared to the single user uplink PC-SCMA over AWGN channel and 0.6 dB performance loss over Rayleigh fading channel.
