— This paper and its companion are devoted to the evaluation of the impact of chaos-based techniques on communications systems with asynchronous code division multiple access. Sequences obtained by repeating a truncated and quantized chaotic time series are compared with classical m-sequences and Gold sequences by means of a performance index taken from(More)
The application of chaotic dynamics to signal processing tasks stems from the realization that its complex behaviors become tractable when observed from a statistical perspective. Here we illustrate the validity of this statement by considering two noteworthy problems—namely, the synthesis of high-electromagnetic compatibility clock signals and the(More)
—Results of recent theoretical investigations highlighted that the use of chaos in direct-sequence code-division multiple access (DS-CDMA) systems may lead to nonnegligible improvements in communication quality for several scenarios. We here briefly review the main steps in this derivation and report the experimental verifications of the corresponding(More)
The idea that compressed sensing may be used to encrypt information from unauthorised receivers has already been envisioned, but never explored in depth since its security may seem compromised by the linearity of its encoding process. In this paper we apply this simple encoding to define a general private-key encryption scheme in which a transmitter(More)
