Summary: 
This paper proposes a novel synchronous acquisition method with an adaptive filter in asynchronous direct sequence/code division multiple access (DS/CDMA) communication systems. An adaptive filter is used in a single-user receiver, in complete synchronization of desired user's signal, the tap coefficients of the filter are controlled to orthogonalize to all other user's spreading sequences without knowledge of the sequences, amplitude and time delays of the signals. While, in the proposed system for synchronous acquisition, the tap coefficients are controlled to orthogonalize to all user's sequences including desired user's signal. The synchronous acquisition can be achieved by using the difference of cross-correlation function value between desired user's sequence of inphase and the tap coefficients for each phase. The principle and performance evaluation for the proposed method are shown. As a result, compared to an acquisition method of conventional sliding correlator, considerable improvement of the average acquisition time can be achieved in large power multiple access interference environment.
