The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'CDMA : Principles of Spread Spectrum Communication':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
The use of a "spread spectrum", or multiple frequencies, for communication is known in some frequency-division multiplexed local area networks, and in some proprietary high-speed modems. Its use in wireless communications has historically been limited to the military, where the reliability and security in hostile environments have been worth the additional engineering. With the increasing use of, and interest in, mobile and cellular communications, code- division multiple access (CDMA) technology is quite desirable. As well as security, it offers much greater efficiencies of available bandwidth, location and velocity information, and improved "hand off" performance when crossing cell boundaries. Intended as a text for a graduate course in electrical engineering or communications, the book covers advanced topics in frequency reuse and bandwidth, synchronization, power considerations, interleaving and other topics. (Students are advised to keep texts from earlier courses as Viterbi does not always define terms or acronyms, and there are errors in the index.) While principles are outlined, the bulk of the book is devoted to detailed calculations of the practicalities of CDMA design. Chapter six is specifically devoted to the design of digital cellular systems. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1995
