Battery power efficiency of the portable unit is a major issue in the design of indoor radio telecommunication systems. The efficiency of the portables depends on the modulation method employed. Digital modulation methods with constant envelope signals are more battery efficient than those with modulated envelope signals since the latter require inefficient linear radio frequency amplifiers. The improvement in efficiency is very significant when the constant envelope modulation method is minimum shift keying and a directly modulated power radio frequency oscillator is used to generate the modulated signal. This paper compares the performance of binary phase shift keying (BPSK) and minimum frequency shift keying (MSK) in a spread spectrum code division multiple access setting. The BPSK system can support about 8 percent plus 0.5 more simultaneous users for a given carrier to interference ratio but the MSK system has the advantage of being more power efficient
