A novel bit error rate (BER) expression for a coherent direct sequence-code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) receiver which employs exponential chip weighting waveforms with imperfect power control over a multipath Rayleigh fading channel is obtained. It is shown that the proposed expression has lower complexity than the known BER expression in the literature.
