BER Performance of DS-CDMA System Over a Frequency Selective Multipath Rayleigh Fading Channel

Mahmoud, Seedahmed S., Hussain, Zahir M., & O’Shea, Peter J. (2003) BER Performance of DS-CDMA System Over a Frequency Selective Multipath Rayleigh Fading Channel. In Australian Telecommunications, Networks and Applications Conference, 8th – 10th December 2003, Southbank, Melbourne.


In this paper, we present a study of the bit error rate (BER) performance of DS-CDMA system over a frequency selective multipath Rayleigh fading channel with perfect power control. The standard Gaussian approximation (SGA) is used to evaluate the BER performance for the DS-CDMA. The performance of DS-CDMA over the frequency selective fading channel is examined with the varying numbers of multipath components, varying numbers of interfering cells, and various process gain. From the simulation results we have seen that the BER performance is affected by these parameters.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
