When wireless multi-media information such as voice, video, data and so on are transmitted, the difference required quality of Service (QoS) including required Bit Error Rate (BER), required information bit rate, message's delay constraints as well as traffic performance should be taken into account. A wireless multi-media system should achieve a flexible balance of these differences. In this letter, an Adaptive Chip/Bit Control Method is proposed for Wireless Multi-media CDMA System. The proposed method controls both chip and bit rate of each medium according to the offered traffic condition and the quality measurement of each medium. In the proposed method, measurement are carried out in the base station. Simulation results show that the proposed method not only maintain the required BER of each medium, but achieve a higher total throughput even in high traffic condition. Thus we see that the proposed method possesses higher flexible ability than conventional methods.
