A comparison is made between both direct sequence (DS) and frequency hopping (FH) spreading techniques in code division multiple access (CDMA) based upon the stringent requirements of proposed third generation mobile radio systems in Europe. Given the many criteria against which this comparison is made, the outcome is slightly in favour of DS-CDMA.
