Recently, correlation delay shift keying (CDSK) has been proposed as a modulation scheme for noncoherent detection which inherits the advantages of conventional spread-spectrum communications using a chaotic reference signal. The CDSK modulation scheme transmits the sum of a chaotic reference signal with its delayed modulated version. In this paper, we consider the utilisation of pseudo-random binary sequences (PRBS) instead of chaotic reference signals. This new modulation scheme is defined as the delay and add direct sequence (DADS) modulation scheme. DADS offers some interesting properties compared to CDSK, mainly the possibility to select some PRBS which improves the BER performance. To this end, a new criterion for PRBS selection is proposed. Theoretical analysis and simulation results show that the BER performance of CDSK is comparable to DADS with arbitrary PRBS, however the DADS performance can be improved by 3 dB with PRBS selection.
