This resource aims to provide mobile-communications professionals with a thorough understanding of CDMA (code division multiple access) transmissions and detection. Because CDMA technology provides a highly efficient way to share communication channels among different users, it has been adopted in today's third-generation mobile-communication systems. The book offers practical guidance in designing the latest equipment being utilized in this field. It also describes the open issues of this type of multiple access, introduces the properties of CDMA and investigates in-depth novel and recent CDMA systems. This book should be of interest to engineers and researchers in mobile communications; project engineers and product managers working for mobile-handset manufacturers; and university professors and graduate students.
