  • CDMA Technology OverviewFebruary, 2001 - Page 1-3 Why CDMA? CDMA is the technology of choice for both 800 MHz Cellular and 1900 MHz PCS service providers CDMA satisfies CTIA Users Performance Requirements CDMA provides high capacity (many times the capacity of AMPS) CDMA provides privacy through its coding scheme CDMACDMA CDMACDMA ode ivision ultiple ccess CDMA is extremely robust and provides excellent audio quality

  • CDMA Technology OverviewFebruary, 2001 - Page 1-4 What is Multiple Access? Since the beginning of telephony and radio, system operators have tried to squeeze the maximum amount of traffic over each circuit Types of Media Twisted pair - copper Coaxial cable Fiber optic cable Air interface (radio signals) Advantages of Multiple Access Increased capacity: serve more users Reduced capital requirements since fewer media can carry the traffic Decreased per-user expense Easier to manage and administer Each pair of users enjoys a dedicated, private circuit through the transmission medium, unaware that the other users exist. Multiple Access: Simultaneous private use of a transmission medium by multiple, independent users.

  • CDMA Technology OverviewFebruary, 2001 - Page 1-5 Multiple Access Technologies The physical transmission medium is a resource that can be subdivided into individual channels according to different criteria depending on the technology used: Heres how the three most popular technologies establish channels: FDMA (Frequency Division Multiplex Access) each user on a different frequency a channel is a frequency TDMA (Time Division Multiplex Access) each user on a different window period in time (time slot) a channel is a specific time slot on a specific frequency CDMA (Code Division Multiplex Access) each user uses the same frequency all the time, but mixed with different distinguishing code patterns a channel is a unique set of code patterns Frequency Time Power Frequency Time Power Frequency Time Power FDMA TDMA CDMA Channel :An individually-assigned, dedicated pathway through a transmission medium for one users information

  • CDMA Technology OverviewFebruary, 2001 - Page 1-8 CDMA Is a Spread-Spectrum System Traditional technologies try to squeeze the signal into the minimum required bandwidth Direct-Sequence Spread spectrum systems mix their input data with a fast spreading sequence and transmit a wideband signal The spreading sequence is independently regenerated at the receiver and mixed with the incoming wideband signal to recover the original data The de-spreading gives substantial gain proportional to the bandwidth of the spreading signal CDMA uses a larger bandwidth but then uses resulting processing gain to increase capacity Spread Spectrum Payoff: Processing Gain Spread Spectrum TRADITIONAL COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM Slow Information Sent TX Slow Information Recovered RX Narrowband Signal SPREAD-SPECTRUM SYSTEM Fast Spreading Sequence Slow Information Sent TX Slow Information Recovered RX Fast Spreading Sequence Wideband Signal

  • CDMA Technology OverviewFebruary, 2001 - Page 1-24 How Many Spreading Codes Do We Need? ( Discriminating Among Forward Code Channels) nA Mobile Station tuned to a particular CDMA frequency receives a Forward CDMA Channel from a sector in a Base Station. nThis Forward CDMA Channel carries a composite signal made of up to 64 forward code channels nSome of these code channels are traffic channels while other are overhead channels needed by the CDMA system to operate properly. nA set of 64 mathematical codes is needed to differentiate the 64 possible forward code channels that can be contained in a Forward CDMA Channel. The codes in this set are called Walsh Codes Sync Pilot FW Traffic (for user #1) Paging FW Traffic (for user #2) FW Traffic (for user #3)

  • CDMA Technology OverviewFebruary, 2001 - Page 1-26 How Many Spreading Codes Do We Need? ( Discriminating Among Reverse Code Channels) nThe CDMA system must be able to uniquely identify each Mobile Station that may attempt to communicate with a Base Station nA very large number of Mobile Stations will be in the market nOne binary digit sequence called the Long PN Sequence (or Long PN Code) is defined for the purpose of uniquely identifying each possible reverse code channel nThis sequence is extremely long and can be used in trillions of different ways. Each one of them constitutes a mathematical code which can be used to identify a particular user (and is then called a User Long Code) or a particular access channel (explained later in this course) RV Traffic from M.S. #1837732008 RV Traffic from M.S. #8764349209 RV Traffic from M.S. #223663748 System Access Attempt by M.S. #4348769902 (on access channel #1)

This waste is formally defined as what? Processing gain 2.What vocoder function stores a collection of arbitrary waveform segments? Code book 3.Are all CDMA Walsh Codes orthogonal? Yes 4.What sequence best describes this conversion relationship in CDMA: chips symbols bits 5.List the four overhead (support) channels. Paging, sync, access, pilot
