In this work we have considered direct-sequence spread-spectrum transmission for indoor wireless communications. We have modeled the indoor communications medium, which is a multipath fading channel, by a discrete set of Rayleigh faded paths. We have proposed analytical techniques to evaluate the probability of error for the receiver terminals studied in this work. Numerical results reveal that, for the nondiversity receivers considered here, Rayleigh fading is very hostile to this form of modulation/multiple access technique. The results also indicate that either some form of operation to prevent Rayleigh fading or diversity operation to counteract-Rayleigh fading, is required.
