We previously proposed a next generation cellular system for IMT-2000 based on wideband DS-CDMA with TDD scheme and have evaluated its performance by computer simulation, laboratory and field experiments. This paper presents the design concept of TDD-mode operation on wideband DS-CDMA systems. These systems employ almost the same techniques with a little difference as FDD-mode. We also present the schemes of the TDD-mode specific techniques such as fast cell search, transmission diversity and transmitter power control and show the evaluation results of them are effective. Performance can be improved by use of enhanced techniques such as interference cancellation and adaptive antenna array diversity.
