The objectives of this paper are to study, analyze and evaluate the performance of Direct Sequence – Wide Code Division Multiple Access (DS-WCDMA) systems in Mobile Rayleigh fading propagation channel. The Parameters which are considered for the evaluation performance are Additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN),Rayleigh propagation fading channel and the Code sequence . length. The evaluation of DS-WCDMA was derived for different type of digital modulation using Mat lab simulation link. The results were obtained in terms of bit error rates(BER)in graphical form.
