In recent times the Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) is one of the most used. This is because it provides higher data rates in mobile communication and it provides the users with many multimedia applications such as video streams and high resolution pictures. In other to enhance the performance of the technology a suitable modulation technique and error correcting technique is this paper I have done performance analysis of different spread spectrum sequence with the Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK) modulation technique when the system is subjected to multipath Rayleigh fading and Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN). The research has been done using MATLAB for simulation and evaluation of the bit error rate for the WCDMA system models.
