The initial code Acquisition Techniques of Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum Systems for two categories of serial and parallel search strategies is investigated. A simple and economic scheme for coarse code acquisition of Reverse Link for UMTS (FDD-WCDMA) application is presented. The emphasis is on the performance of a new scheme (using a Surface Acoustic Wave Matched Filter) as a term of probability of false detection (pf) in code division multiple access (CDMA) systems. Knowledge of initial code uncertainty phases help to reduce the overhead of preamble on the access channel and a very simple scheme for acquisition to be determined. In the reverse link this uncertainty is due to the cell radius only. Acquisition time required for a simple serial search scheme may therefore be unacceptably large. On the other hand, for parallel acquisition using parallel branches in accordance with the chip uncertainty time region leads to a lot of hardware complexity. Initially, the effect of multiple access interference and spreading sequence length are determined for models applicable to the reverse link of a mobile communications system. Then the acquisition performance is derived using a model of a cellular mobile communication channel, which includes the effects of multiple access interference, adjacent cell interference, frequency selective Rician channel, shadowing, power control error, and vehicle speed. It is shown that the most significant factors in determining the acquisition performance are the acquisition observation interval, the number of users, and the specular to diffuse power ratio. Numerical results based on analysis of acquisition performance in mobile channel show that the proposed acquisition scheme is efficient, robust, fast and suitable for real time low cost implementation.
