We analyze the performance of a flexible multirate scheme for direct-sequence code division multiple-access (CDMA) mobile radio systems. The proposed scheme uses a variable processing gain serial pseudonoise modulation as a multirate strategy. To reduce the interference effects, the CDMA system utilizes the coherent fast Walsh transform transmission technique. The proposed scheme can be used in the reverse link (mobile-to-base station) of the upcoming third-generation wide-band CDMA system (has the feature of coherent reverse link). We analyze the system performance with and without using a decorrelating multiuser detector. The uncoded bit-error probability (BEP) with and without decorrelating detection on a multipath fading channel is derived analytically. In addition, the validity of the analysis results is demonstrated by computer simulations using the IMT-2000 vehicular multipath channel model. In order to make sure that the proposed processing techniques do not distort the soft values at the demodulator output, the proposed multirate scheme is also simulated in case of using turbo codes. The turbo-coded BEP is calculated for different user data rates and different number of decoding iterations
