This paper proposes a performance analysis comparison of bit error rate of DS-CDMA over Nakagami fading channel with correlated and noncorrelated Nakagami multipath fading channel. The modulation scheme is binary phase shift keying(BPSK), the receiver model is RAKE receiver. It is assumed that the fading parameters in each diversity branch are identical. The simulations are carried out based on MATLAB program. The obtained results show that the effects of correlation cannot be ignored in a correlated Nakagami environment.
