Applications of Walsh Functions and the FHT in CDMA Technology
A unified approach for modulation and demodulation of CDMA signaling based on IS-95 standard  is proposed. We propose a simpler forward link design, based on Fast Hadamard Transform (FHT) for generating the composite signal. In some systems, available power is a scarce resource and some power saving can be obtained when the user terminal is able to derive its phase, time and frequency references without the aid of a pilot signal. This necessitates some form of suppressed carrier tracking. A modified receiver using the FHT technique is proposed to implement phase, frequency and time tracking at the user terminal.
