In recent years, chaotic communication is a hot research topic and it suits better for the emerging wireless networks because of its excellent features. Different chaos based modulation schemes have evolved, of which the CS-DCSK modulation technique provides better BER performance and bandwidth efficiency, due to its code domain approach. The QCSK modulation technique provides double benefit: higher data rate with similar BER performance and same bandwidth occupation as DCSK. By combining the advantage of code shifted differential chaos shift keying (CS-DCSK) and Quadrature chaos shift keying (QCSK) scheme, a novel modulation scheme called code shifted Quadrature chaos shift keying (CS-QCSK) is proposed and its suitability in a multiuser scenario is tested in this paper.
