Power and bandwidth efficient communication schemes are of major concerns in wireless communication systems. One kind of efficient pseudonoise code is proposed in this paper that provides combined power-bandwidth efficiency. A novel algorithm for verifying the power and bandwidth efficient properties of a pseudonoise code is proposed with systematic analysis on code parameters. Applications of the derived codes had been implemented on 802.11 DS/SS system, which performs 36% bandwidth reduction and 14% power consumption reduction. Several new pseudonoise codes with different code lengths are also proposed.
