Abstract
Deciding about which coding sequences should be used is an important issue in many communication
systems, such as those employing Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). In this paper, we propose a cascading
electronic codec based on a recursive algorithm for the generation of perfect sequences, derived from an Inverse
Discrete Fourier Transform (IDFT) of Golay codes. The sequences generated have a low Peak-to-Average Power Ratio
(PAPR), around 3 dB, which is the PAPR of a sine wave. The proposal is compared to the original Golay codes,
verifying that our codec provides better crosscorrelation and autocorrelation results, crucial to gain immunity to
multi-path interference.
