In this paper, we consider the performance of codedivision multiple-access (CDMA) communications. In particular, we will illustrate the use of a semianalytical approach which is combined with importance sampling for the efficient evaluation of the average bitor rates (BER's) of asynchronous directsequence (DS) based CDMA systems employing binary phase shift keying (BPSK) modulation along with specific signature sequences for a variety of system parameters. Index Terms- Code-division multiple-access, efficient Monte Carlo simulation, importance sampling.
