Patent Number: 6,169,887

Title: Range extension within a communication system

Abstract: Receivers (201, 202) within a base station (101) receive a transmission from a remote unit (114). The received signal is delayed a first amount by first delay circuitry (203), and a second amount by second delay circuitry (204). During despreading, a delayed input signal is despread with a Pseudo-Random (PN) code. The system time utilized by the PN generators (213, 214) is delayed a third time period by third and fourth delaying circuitry (215, 216).
