We report on the design and performance of surfaceacoustic wave (SAW) minimum shift keying (MSK) tapped delay lines using pseudonoise code sequences with a length of 128 chips. As a substrate, X112°rotY-LiTaO3 has been used due to the system requirements of a given CDMA/TDMA (TCDMA) radio communication system. System IF frequency, bandwidth of the major lobe, and integration time of the SAW devices were, respectively, 360 MHz, 63.5 MHz, and 3 fis. We used SAW tapped delay lines employing nonweighted as well as cosine-weighted input interdigital transducers incorporating split-fingers. We designed both expander as well as compressor filters attaining very similar experimental results. We found insertion loss values down to 16 dB and amplitude ripples of less than 2 dB. The close-in selectivity was 28 dB.
