The approximately synchronized code-division multiple-access (CDMA) communication system, using the QAM sequences with zero correlation zone (ZCZ) as its spreading sequences, not only can remove the multiple access interference (MAI) and multi-path interference (MPI) synchronously, but also has a higher transmission data rate than the one using traditional ZCZ sequences with the same sequence length. Based on Gray mapping and the known binary ZCZ sequences, in this letter, six families of 16-QAM sequences with ZCZ are presented. When the binary ZCZ sequences employed by this letter arrive at the theoretical bound on the binary ZCZ sequences, and their family size is a multiple of 4 or 2, two of the resultant six 16-QAM sequence sets satisfy the bound referred to above as well.
