The performance of DS/CDMA systems using forward link beamforming and rake diversity combining is investigated analytically in frequency selective fading channels, whereas previous studies have resorted to Monte Carlo simulations in flat fading channels. The capacity of DS/CDMA systems is considerably improved by employing forward link beamforming.
