For direct sequence spread spectrum systems, the performance of PN sequence acquisition can be significantly affected if data modulation is present. However, the data modulation often exists during the reacquisition of a PCS radio channel. This study proposes and analyzes two shemes which are designed to improve acquisition process for PN sequence under data modulation. Both designs are based upon a PN acquisition receiver with parallel I-Q matched filters. The first scheme employs a serial search strategy with verification mode. The second scheme, which is still based upon the same parallel acquisition receiver, employs the parallel search strategy. We show that the second scheme is capable of providing faster acquisition under data modulation than the first serial search scheme using the same number of I-Q matched filter. We believe it should become a very good alternative for the acquisition of data modulated PN sequences in personal communications.
