This paper deals with study results on the effect of nonlinear amplification in the CDMA system using offset-QPSK signals bandlimited with a square-root cosine roll-off filter. As a result of the study, it is shown that the nonlinear amplification does not affect bit error rate performance with reasonable out-of-band emission characteristics when the roll-off factor of the transmit filter is one.
