CPM-Based Spread Spectrum Systems for Multi-User Communications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors propose a new Spread Spectrum (SS) system based on Continuous Phase Modulations (CPMs). The main idea is to exploit the sequence of modulation indices of a multi-h CPM as a Frequency Hopping (FH) sequence. They will show how the sequence of indices impacts on the CPM signal bandwidth and Power Spectral Density (PSD). Spectral spreading, flatness and smoothness can be easily achieved by an appropriate choice of the maximum value of the modulation index and of the length of the index sequence. They will show that a CPM-based spread spectrum system achieves an overall spectral efficiency larger than that of a single-user single-h CPM signal even when a single-user detector is employed at the receiver.
