The performance of synchronous spread-spectrum multiple-access (SSMA) communications based on direct-sequence (DS), slow frequency-hopped (SFH), and fast frequency-hopped (FFH) systems for wireless local communications of micro-cellular personal communications is analyzed. Using an indoor multipath fading channel model with clusters of arriving rays, we investigate multiuser DS systems with RAKE and diversity reception by selection combining (SC), multiuser SFH systems with equal-gain (EG) diversity reception, and multiuser FFH systems with correlated EG and self-normalization (SN) combining techniques. Reed-Solomon codes are considered to further improve the system performance. Given a fixed available bandwidth with narrow band interference (NBI), capacities and packet error rates are determined under various system configurations. Total capacities of hybrid frequency-division multiple-access (FDMA)/SSMA (DS and SFH) systems are compared with those of wide-band SSMA systems. For high data rate communications, wide-band DS-SSMA systems have larger capacities than hybrid FDMA/DS-SSMA systems. For low data rate communications, a capacity comparison between wide-band DS-SSMA and hybrid FDMA/DS-SSMA systems depends on fading statistics. Hybrid FDMA/SFH-SSMA systems have larger capacities than wide-band DS-SSMA systems, FFH-SSMA systems could not provide satisfactory performance due to correlation among hopping bands
