The objective is to generate a suboptimal weight vector for an adaptive array system operating in a multipath fading CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) channel. The total computational load of the proposed procedure is about including the update of autocovariance matrix as well as the weight update itself, where N is the number of antenna elements. The performance of the proposed array system is shown in terms of BER (Bit Error Rate), allowable capacity, and convergence rate in practical CDMA signal environments such as IS95 and IS2000 1X.
