Mark Patrick Mouser Electronics Long-range low-power wireless network have the potential to create the Internet of Agricultural Things The application of technology has always driven an increase filetypf productivity, the two are inextricably linked because it is often the demand for higher productivity that provides the motivation for achieving technological breakthroughs; necessity is the mother of invention, after all.

As electronics technology improved, it started to be used for covert military transmissions in view of the facts that the transmissions look like noise, it is difficult to decipher without the knowledge of the right codes, and furthermore it is difficult to jam.

As a result this it was possible to start writing a specification for CDMA in Data produced by other dispreading codes would appear as noise and can be discarded as it would be lower in value.

It filehype found that the larger the spreading gain of the CDMA spread spectrum signal, the more effective the performance of the system is. However once received and processed with the correct descrambling codes, it is possible to extract the required data. Each bit in the spreading sequence is called a chip, and this is much shorter than each information bit.

CDMA Spread Spectrum Basics ::

When transmitting a CDMA spread spectrum signal, the required data signal is multiplied with what is known as a spreading or chip code data stream. The resulting data stream has a higher data rate than the data itself. This is multiplied with the spreading code to regenerate the original data. The use of CDMA spread spectrum is a powerful principle and using this CDMA technique, it is possible to transmit several sets of data independently on the same carrier and then reconstitute them at the basivs without mutual interference.

Although as the number of users fjletype care has to be taken to ensure that interference levels do not rise to the extent that performance falls, it is still possible to provide access to a large number of different users and allow them access. To quantify the increase in bandwidth, a term known as the spreading gain is used. CDMA or Code Division Multiple Access is a form of access scheme that has been widely used within 3G cellular telecommunications systems as well as being used in a number of other technologies as well.


The spreading sequence or chip sequence has the same data rate as the final output from the spreading multiplier. It has a number of distinguishing features that are key to spread spectrum transmission technologies:.

CDMA technology gave some significant advantages when compared to the technologies used for previous in cvma of overall performance and specifically in terms of spectrum efficiency.

The use of a different code in transmission and reception results in a signal similar in character to noise being generated and this can be discarded.

Similarly several mobiles can communicate with a single base station, provided that in each case an independent spreading code is used. CDMA has been a particularly successful technology.

CDMA spread spectrum basics

When this is done, then only the data with that was generated with the same spreading code is regenerated, all the other data that is generated from different spreading code streams is ignored.

The principle behind CDMA spread spectrum communications is relatively straightforward. In the example shown above, the spreading gain is four, as seen by the fact that four “1”s are generated for each required data bit. This enabled the process to be visualised more easily. This is because, signals with high data rates occupy wider signal bandwidths than those with low data rates.

Had another code been used to regenerate the CDMA spread spectrum signal, then it would have resulted in a random sequence after de-spreading. Its development lead on to the CDMA series of standards. Broadcast technology Embedded Design principles Distribution Formulae. For each data bit, the complete spreading code is used to multiple the data, and in this way, for each data bits, the spread or expanded signal consists of four bits.


In order to visualise how the CDMA spread spectrum process operates, the easiest method is to show an example of how the system actually operates in terms of data bits, and how the data is recovered from the CDMA spread spectrum signal. In this way a base station can communicate with several mobiles on a single channel. In this way it can be seen that the original data is recovered exactly by using the same spreading or chip code.

CDMA is based around the use of direct sequence spread spectrum techniques.

Basicx spreading codes may be 64 bits, or even bits long to provide the required performance. Power management RF technology Test Wireless. This was only one cellular telecommunications system, although it was the first. In this way, CDMA is different to the previous schemes used to provide different cellular users with access to the radio network.

The bandwidth of the CDMA spread spectrum signal will be much wider than the original basisc stream. With the revolution in cellular telecommunications that occurred in the s a then little know company named Qualcomm working on DSSS transmissions started to look at this as the basis for a cellular telecommunications multiple access scheme – CDMA – code division multiple access.

Essentially CDMA is a form of spread spectrum transmission which uses spreading codes to spread the signal filerype over a cdm bandwidth then would normally be required. This would have appeared as noise in the system. CDMA uses spread spectrum technology with the use of different codes to separate between different stations or users rather than different frequencies of time slots as in the case of previous access technologies. By using CDMA spread spectrum technology, many users are able to use the same channel and gain access to the system without causing undue interference to each other.
