This work addresses code division multiple access (CDMA) implementation of automotive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radars. The tansec frequency modulation (TSFM) is proposed as a single intracoding scheme for CDMA-MIMO radars. The properties of the TSFM coding family are analyzed and two novel codeword selection algorithms are proposed. The TSFM is compared to a variety of coding families by evaluating their autocorrelation and cross-correlation properties. The considered coding families are based on phase coding: Hadamard, Gold, optimal peak to sidelobe; and frequency coding: Piecewise linear frequency modulated. Properties of the coding families are analyzed with a variety of novel criteria, which are especially useful for CDMA-MIMO radars. The performance of the CDMA-MIMO radar with different coding families is evaluated via simulations of practical multitarget automotive scenarios. It is shown that the frequency-based TSFM coding family outperforms the other considered coding families in terms of their cross-correlation properties.
