Earlier articles show that DS-CDMA is well suited for power-line communication purposes, e.g. [I]. But this technique has one crucial disadvantage. The hardware implementation of a spread spectrum receiver is of high complexity. Therefore, only some CDMA transceiver chips exist on the market. They all have in common that they do not offer a Rake-receiver… CONTINUE READING
