Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A simple analysis of cellular CDMA radio systems is presented. This analysis is based on the cumulation of the mean power levels of the interfering signals, instead of their instantaneous power levels. Such analysis is valid for micro/macro-cellular radio system where the received signal suffers from Rician/Rayleigh fading. The system performance is determined in terms of the probability of bit error, processing gain, Rice factor, the number of users and the multipaths in an exponential multipath intensity profile. The results obtained were observed to agree perfectly with those presented in literature. This study provides a simple and yet accurate tool in the analysis and design of cellular CDMA systems.
