Code Division Multiple Access

  • CDMA
German: Code Division Multiple Access
Japanese: 符号分割多元接続

Communications transmission engineering. A form of multiplexing that permits simultaneous use of a single channel by a number of users. CDMA uses a spread spectrum technique to spread the data stream over the full bandwidth of the channel. It assigns a code to each individual data stream so that multiple streams can be overlaid, then separated and decoded at the receiving end.
