Code division multiple access. A transmission scheme that allows multiple users to share the same RF range of frequencies. In effect, the system divides a large set of frequencies into a smaller range and divides the data transmission among them. The transmitting device divides the data among a preselected set of nonsequential frequencies. The receiver tfian collates the van oes data pieaes from t he disparate frequencies into a coherent data streams As part of th e Ru system setup, the receiver components are advised of the scrambled order of the incoming frequencies. An important aspect of this scheme is that the receiver syste m inters oot any signai othe s ehm the o nes specitied for a g^en transmission.
