Summary: 
This paper considers the evaluation of the acquisition performance for an access channel preamble based on the random access procedure of direct sequence code division multiple access (DS/CDMA) reverse link. The parallel acquisition technique that employs the single-dwell and multiple-dwell (double-dwell) detection schemes is investigated. The acquisition performance for two detection schemes is compared in terms of the acquisition probablity and the mean acquisition time. The parallel acquisition is done by a bank of N parallel I/Q noncoherent correlators. Expressions on the detection, false alarm, and miss probabilities of the single-dwell and multiple-dwell (double-dwell) detection schemes are derived for the multiple H1 cells and multipath Rayleigh fading channel. Comparing the single-dwell detection scheme with the multiple-dwell (double-dwell) detection scheme in the case of employing the parallel acquisition technique in the reverse link, the numerical results show that the single-dwell detection scheme provides a better performance.
