A new hybrid multi-access technique, called delay-time/code division multi-access (DT/CDMA), is proposed. Multiplexing is accomplished in both the delay-time domain and code domain. Delay-time division multiplexing is achieved by assigning different cyclic time delays to the same spreading sequence. At a receiver, frequency-domain equalisation, despreading, and demultiplexing are performed simultaneously in the frequency domain. The bit error rate performance when using the proposed DT/CDMA in a frequency-selective Rayleigh fading channel is evaluated by computer simulation.
