Abstract
A method to generate a large number of M-ary Perfect Periodic Autocorrelation (PPAC) codes of length N, with good correlation properties, is presented. N+1 perfect sequences are obtained if an inverse discrete Fourier transform (IDFT) is applied to a specific subset of N+1 bipolar sequences derived from maximal-length sequences. This set of perfect sequences has a maximum absolute value of periodic cross-correlation equal to the square root of N+1. Moreover, this absolute value is equal to 1 when all perfect sequences are in-phase.
