"An Introduction to Linear Recursive Sequences in Spread Spectrum Systems"
(revised 12/01 to include information on W-CDMA and other commercial systems) (~800K)
"Spread Spectrum & CDMA Tutorial " -- by Michael Hendry. Focuses on CDMA, but
also covers the basics of spread spectrum topics necessary to understand CDMA. Suitable for engineers.
"Spread Spectrum Communications" -- by Jay Fitzsummons, Troy Morris, Tony Parezanovic, of the University of Newcastle, Australia.
This comprehensive, well written, and highly illustrated 1997 tutorial touches lightly on just about every aspect of spread spectrum communications,
ranging from direct sequence and frequency hopping, to time hopping, chirping, and hybrid techniques. It covers PN coding theory and generation,
spectrum spreading, error detection, modulation, synchronization, as well as applications of spread spectrum in space systems, personal
communication services (PCS), and wireless local area networks (WLAN). Good glossary is included.
