W-CDMA and SW-CDMA air interfaces require that a user equipment in a given cell acquires slot and frame synchronization, and identifies the primary scrambling code used by the target cell before starting communications. This synchronization procedure is identified as cell search procedure in W-CDMA and beam search procedure in SW-CDMA. Notwithstanding the(More)
W-CDMA and SW-CDMA air interfaces are based on code division multiple access and as in all spread spectrum systems the initial acquisition procedure is a challenging issue. This procedure is identified as cell search in W-CDMA and beam search in SWCDMA. Although the terrestrial air interface W-CDMA and the satellite one SW-CDMA are very similar, the(More)
